In a football match, one of the most important players is the goalkeeper, because the winner of the match is based on the performance of the players and the goalkeeper. Every team must have a good goalkeeper at the goal post if they want to prevent goals from entering their net. One important time a goalkeeper is needed is during penalties. Catching penalties is not a very easy thing. Most times, players often score the goalkeepers who can't really do much to stop the ball from entering into the net.
As difficult as it is to catch a penalty, there are some keepers who have amazing penalty keeping records. One of these keepers is Scott Sterling. Scott Sterling plays for Yale University. He is popular for his amazing keeping style. Scott Sterling became popular after he saved his team in a match against North Carolina.
Yale and North Carolina played out a 2-2 draw. The two keepers of both teams were the ones who could decide the resulting winner of the match. Scott Sterling was the hero of the match, after he saved five penalties in the match. The penalty shootout was a very funny one, because the penalties were saved with his face, even though it was not on purpose. The ball hit his face accidentally.
Scott Sterling suffered some injuries on his face, but he was still able to set this amazing record.
