Soccer Ball-Boy Assists In A Goal During Game
Total Pro Sports – That’s right even a soccer ball-boy named “Ofek Mizrachi” is paid the big bucks to help his soccer team win.
Earlier this week saw Israel’s Soccer League 2nd division teams Hapoel Haifa and Bnei Lod do battle. At the 19th minute the visiting goal keeper from Bnei Lod scampered to head the ball out of play before the opposing Hapoel Haifa player got there. Ball-boy Ofek Mizrachi was on the scene immediately and passed a new ball to the Haifa player Hamudi Kial. Kial threw the ball into his teammate Eran Levi who scored in the open net.
“Cue an intervention from a lightning fast ballboy who chucked a replacement ball straight to the waiting attacker. With the keeper stranded out of his goal, Hamudi found Eran Levi who smacked a first time shot into the open net.” [101GreatGoals]
Even with the help of Ofek Mizrachi, the Hapoel Haifa lost the game 2-1. But at least Ofek Mizrachi gained world recognition for his stellar play making.
