A Look Back at Lisa De Vanna’s Stunning Bicycle Kick Goal against Boston at RU’s Yurcak Field

by Dave Schatz | Posted on Sunday, September 29th, 2013

Lisa De Vanna’s bicycle kick goal, in the 14th minute of Sky Blue FC’s match against the Boston Breakers on June 1, 2013 at RU’s Yurcak Field, was amazing and worth revisiting here on DGS.

The much talked about goal advanced Sky Blue FC to a 2-0 lead, and they pounded the Breakers 5-1 that evening in Piscataway, New Jersey. The star forward’s phenomanal bicycle kick held as the game winning goal.

“Oh lord what a goal — Lisa De Vanna — bicycle kick …certainly that was world class from De Vanna. So far this season, she’s certainly been Sky Blue’s best player… best attacking player in this league…” the announcers said with excitement.

For those of you who don’t know exactly what a bicycle kick goal is, here is Wikipedia’s description: “A bicycle kick (also called scissor kick or overhead kick) is a physical move made by throwing the body up into the air, making a shearing movement with the legs to get one leg in front of the other without holding on to the ground. The move can either be done backwards or sideways… This move is one of the most praised plays in the game.”
