WATCH: NPSL goalkeeper scores from over 100 yards out on punt
The craziest goal you'll see this week took place in a match which you very likely didn't see.
FC Wichita goalkeeper Mark Weir scored from about 100 yards out on Wednesday in a National Premier Soccer League (NPSL) playoff game. With Wichita leading 2-0 in second-half stoppage time, Shreveport Rafters FC sent everyone -- including its goalkeeper -- forward for a corner kick. The kick came right to Weir, who alertly boomed a punt from his own penalty spot toward the opposing empty net. The ball bounced just before the 18-yard box and rolled into the net, alluding a chasing defender and goalkeeper.

The NPSL is unofficially considered the fourth tier of the U.S. Soccer pyramid and mainly consists of teams and players which maintain amateur status.
