Watch: UNC's Cloutier scores one-handed behind-the-back goal

North Carolina men's lacrosse's 2016 NCAA tournament run ended with a national championship. Its 2017 postseason started with a tremendous highlight reel goal.

Chris Cloutier put the Tar Heels on the board in their opening round matchup against Albany with a one-handed behind-the-back goal that somehow had the accuracy — and just enough power — to get by Great Danes goalie JD Colarusso.

Cloutier first exploded through a narrow passage between two Albany defenders, then flung the shot on net with his right arm behind his back just before he ran into a third defender waiting for him. The bouncing shot trickled into the net to give the Tar Heels the early lead.

Impressive stuff from this year's ACC tournament MVP.
