Virginia beats the buzzer with game-winning goal as time expires

  Jean-Chrostophe Koffi scored the game-winning goal for Virginia as time expired.

We've all seen buzzer-beaters in basketball, game-winning field goals or Hail Mary touchdown passes in football, and walk-off hits in baseball and softball. But it's not often that there's a true buzzer-beater in soccer. That's what makes No. 10 Virginia's game-winner in a 2-1 victory over Davidson on Monday night a must-watch.

With 10 seconds remaining in a tied game, Virginia's Joe Bell sent a corner kick into the box, where it was headed away by a defender. The ball landed at the feet of Pablo Aguilar, who dropped off a pass to Jean-Christophe Koffi at the top of the box. Koffi fired a shot with three seconds left and the ball deflected off of two Davidson defenders before landing in the back of the goal as time expired.
