Ateneo rookie Sam Lim (9) pulled off an early candidate for Goal of the Year
The Ateneo de Manila men's football team is currently leading the UAAP men's football standings with five straight wins, and they've done it by scoring a lot of goals.
The league's leading scorer, sophomore sensation Jarvey Gayoso has been responsible for five of Ateneo's conversions this season, including some pretty spectacular ones, but the season's best goal so far, came from his rookie teammate Sam Lim.
Lim, who's scored three goals so far this season, pulled this fantastic conversion off during their Sunday matchup against UE, and safe to say, it got the crowd on their feet.
Gayoso played distributor on this particular play, getting past one defender on the far left, and then tipping the ball towards Lim. It was deflected by another UE defender, sending the ball airborne. Lim timed his kick perfectly and sent the ball right past UE keepr Frank Rieza.
The goal pushed Ateneo's lead to 2-0, and they eventually went on to win the match, 3-1.
Props to The Guidon's Kirby Jalandoni for catching the goal on video.
