Finding peace in the penalties: Inside the conflicted mind of Dean McNeil

Nov 09, 2016 - Comments: 0

Dean McNeil bounces back and forth in his goal, staring down the one with the ball who is dressed in opposing threads and standing just 12 yards away.

Logistically, this shouldn’t be hard for them. These are penalty kicks, and the advantage always goes to the kicker.

After all, McNeil has to cover a goal that is eight feet high by eight yards wide, and he has no clue where they want to kick the ball. He will have to make a split-second reaction, and the chances of him guessing correctly are slim.
