Men's soccer: UMF freshman flips in a goal from the sidelines

University of Maine at Farmington freshman midfielder Luke Sterling had one of the must-see goals this season and it wasn't even scored off his feet.

Just more than two minutes into the game on Sunday afternoon, UMF earned a throw-in near the Green Mountain bench. Sterling flipped through the air and launched the throw-in from the sidelines, which deflected off the Eagles' goalkeeper and into the net.

On the instant replay, the goal by Sterling looks even more impressive, given the techinque of the throw-in. It was well worthy of the No. 10 spot in SportsCenter's Top 10 plays on Tuesday night.

Sterling scored the lone goal in the first half but the Beavers tallied seven second-half goals in the 8-1 win over Green Mountain.
