Regional ODP Championships, Las Vegas, Nevada
January 23-26, 2004
Cal-North must score to advance to the tournament final. With only minutes left in the game, Chioma prepares to loft the ball across the goal area after her moves twist the Arizona defender like a pretzel.

The Arizona keeper batted away Alma's header, but the ball rebounded back to Alma.

Alma's sidewinder kick will go around defender's waist to right post, where three defenders (14, 17, and the keeper) will touch the ball in a frantic attempt to keep it out of the goal.... no avail, as the ball drops just inside the goal.

Arizona will argue the ball wasn't in the goal, but this image shows the ball completely across the goal line.
