    SMU beat Tulsa on a 95 yard kick from a freshman who had never taken a shot on goal.

    Ryan Rosenbaum's first goal as a Southern Methodist University soccer player won't soon be forgotten.

    Rosenbaum launched a 95-yard kick that bounced over the Tulsa goaltender's head and into the goal.

    SMU was leading 2-1 at the time when Rosenbaum cleared the ball from the SMU end of the field. The high kick took a giant bounce off the grass and ended up in the net giving SMU a 3-1 lead.
