Saving a Ball Shot Above and Behind the Goalie

28 Aug

Here’s a Screenflow video I made of Briana Scurry’s save against Brazil in the semifinal of the 1999 Women’s World Cup. The hand issue is an interesting one, and I’m not sure I entirely agree with my analysis. On a very basic level, she did use the wrong hand. On the other hand, the curve of the ball, and possibly the speed / amount it was behind her, might have prevented her from using her left / high hand. Hard to see from the angle but an interesting question.
