Danny Caro's Goal of the Week: February 15


Matchday 24 was a day for picturebook goals. There were indeed several contenders for goal of the month, goal of the season, noch, but in the end there could only be one winner.

Shacharit Donetsk golden boy ADAM ELLIS fired not just one but two wonder goals against Temple Fortune. You had to feel for the keeper.

Ellis's second goal was something special, but his third, the hat-trick strike, was even better. Fortune just couldn't handle him.

Taking the ball down on his chest, he pushed the ball to his right, and from 30 yards, let rip an amazing shot, across his body, that went like a bullet into the top left hand corner, no goalkeeper could have stopped it.



- ADAM ELLIS (Shacharit Donetsk) - GOAL 2 - of his sixth hat-trick of the season, stunning 35-yard curler into the top corner, from absolutely nothing

- NICK STERN (L'Equipe) - the ball came in from Rich 'Scotty' Alexander, it was only half-cleared by the Camden defence and, as the ball came down from the clearance just inside the box, Stern, with his back to goal, pulled off an absolute worldy bicycle kick to get it back to 1-1

- TIM HEYNES (Los Blancos) - GOAL 1 - was put through with a sumptuous ball over the top to take him clear of the Redbridge backline. Despite being of his first touches of the game, he calmly lifted the ball over the onrushing goalkeeper to put LB 1-0 up

- TIM HEYNES (Los Blancos) - GOAL 2 - was again the recipient of another beautiful crossfield pass, this time courtesy of Svi Freedman, before taking a few touches to bring the ball under control. Heynes then dispatched a shot of the highest quality, from outside the area across the goal. The sprawling keeper looked on hopelessly as the ball powered past him, before kissing the far post and pinging across the goal again before nestling in by the near corner

- BEN JOSEPH (Raiders A) - a free-kick good enough to grace any game

- DAVID JOSEPH COHEN (FC Team A) - finished confidently after a simply beautiful move of nearly 20 passes

- ALON HERSHKORN (FC Team A) - ended a galloping run down the wing with a rasping shot fromo the ball on the edge of the area that whistled inton the top left-hand corner

- DAN POLAK - (NL Raiders C) - Josh Bloom found space 25 yards out and lifted the ball over the Whetstone defence for Daniel Polak, running from deep, to flick the ball first time over the head of the onrushing keeper for the opener at Whetstone

- JOSH BLOOM picked the ball up just inside the Whetstone half, and carrying the ball towards the goal, to the right of the goal as he looked at it and hit the perfect strike from 30 yards into the top left corner of the Whetstone goal. No keeper would have saved that shot, right on the postage stamp. A goal of pure pure quality, "a shoe-in for goal of the week (if not the season)"
