Let’s set the scene.
Servite met up with Loyola this week in Southern California’s CIF Division 1 semifinal, and Servite ended up winning the match 3-2 to advance to the final against El Toro. Junior forward and leading scorer Garrett Amador put in what turned out to be the match-winner with this insane looping 30-yard half volley.
Everything about Amador’s golazo is bananas. How he caught it, where he caught it, the defensive pressure draped off his left shoulder, the placement. Perfect. And even better, this would’ve beaten a world class keeper. The surprise in it assures that.
The goal was Amador’s 22nd of the season, and he’s got another year to play. You might not remember Amador’s name, but just last year he was on the assisting end of the fastest goal in program history just eight seconds into a match. Now he has its golazo brother.
