Long-range flip throw leads to Colorado goal

Flip throws are one of the coolest tricks a soccer player can whip out, because there's really no reason for it to be in his or her arsenal.

But these players are great athletes, so if they can do it, why not? After all, it could lead to some ridiculous goals like the one Colorado pulled off Friday that would be impossible otherwise.

Senior Danica Evans took a throw in from roughly parallel with the box and, with the assistance of some momentum from her flip, lobbed it all the way to just in front of the net, where 6-foot-1 freshman Taylor Kornieck rose above the defense and headed it in for the early lead.

A cool detail is Kornieck immediately running over to Evans after registering her fourth goal of the year to recognize who really made that play possible. Kornieck went on to score another goal while Evans added one of her own late in the Buffaloes' 4-1 win over Hawaii.

Check out the video above and see the goal of the year candidate for yourself.
