Amazing Soccer Play: A Front Flip Throw-In Lands in the Goal

(Vine Link)

It’s an unusual technique, but completely effective. Michael Del Lewis, a soccer player with McKinney Boyd High School in McKinney, Texas made an unusual throw-in at a recent game against Justin Wakeland High School of Frisco, Texas. He smoothly flipped into his pitch, propelling the ball into the net.

He scored a point because the goalie touched the ball during the throw. Otherwise, Stuff (warning: auto-play) informs us, it would not have counted because the rules of soccer prohibit scoring from a direct throw-in.

The game ended in a draw with a final score of 1 to 1.

Stuff doesn't say the goal didn't count, but that the goalie should have let the ball go past since you can't score on a throw-in. Since the goalie did touch the ball, the goal counted and without it McKinney-Boyd would have lost.
