VIDEO: Maryland Lacrosse Uses Hidden Ball Trick To Score Goal Vs. UNC


↵

Maryland's men's lacrosse team rolled over No. 8 seed North Carolina in the first round of the 2011 NCAA Lacrosse Tournament, and it was due in part to one of the best goals you'll ever see. The Terps somehow managed to successfully pull off the hidden ball trick that usually only works on kids, confusing the entire Tar Heels defense and even the ESPN cameraman.

Here's how it happened. Brian Farrell and Grant Catalino met each other outside the offensive zone, and Farrell pretended to flip him the ball. But instead of letting Catalino catch it, he snagged it out of midair just before Catalino could. Catalino then advanced into the teeth of the North Carolina defense, drawing all the UNC defenders to him. Meanwhile, Farrell snuck away on the other side, flipped the ball to Drew Snider, who scored past a completely confused North Carolina goalie Steven Rastivo. The TV commentators had no idea what happened until they slowed down the replay and saw the hidden ball trick.

The Terps basically ran away with the match after that play. If you're North Carolina, how can you possibly rally after getting beat on a play like that?
