Duke Soccer Player Gets Rocked After Taunting UCLA Goalie



“…After Stroud’s game-winning goal, though, UCLA’s Pietro Grassi took issue with Ulfarsson apparently talking to the Bruins’ goalie and pushed him over from behind, getting himself an immediate red card. Obviously an emotional game, especially for the Bruins as they stared down the final minutes of their season, the energy boiled over. For a while, the clock had to be stopped as players from both sides pushed at each other and refs and team captains stepped between to cool the tension.

“It’s part of the sport, and people are competitive. That’s why you play, because if you’re just straightforward and and you don’t have any emotion, you’re not going to get very far,” Kerr said of the game’s frenzied nature.

The crowd, equally as riled up as the players, didn’t sit for the rest of the game and applauded Ulfarsson as he walked off the field after junior Scotty Taylor subbed in for the final minutes. The last seconds left in the game slipped away, even as the Bruins desperately tried to overcome a two-man disadvantage to get an equalizer, and the cheers of Koskinen Stadium were probably heard around the whole city of Durham. ”

  1. WTF? Its 2 to 1 in the 2nd quarter – has 2 more to go. A LOT can happen in those 2 quarters. Not to mention, you celebrate in private in the locker room or bus ride home. You dont disrespect an opponent like that. Even if they didi it to you first – be the better athlete.

  2. Why can't people just accept shithousery? It's part of football, if you don't like it play a different sport. Oh yeah also if you push someone over and get sent off you've absolutely lost lol

  3. You never retaliate in a blatant manner, instead all of your teammates make sure that guy gets a slide tackle from all of you, I would "accidently" lose the ball in front of him 50/50, if he goes for it slide tackle, if he doesn't run right at him and mow him down.

  4. You didn't show the precursor to this : the goalie time-wasting repeatedly when UCLA was up 1-0!!! Duke scored 2 quick goals, the Goalie got what he deserved and Duke won the game (:

  5. love how you fail to show what precipitated this event … ucla goalie was holding the ball for excessively long periods of time every time he got the ball, this started like half way thru the game and refs weren't doing anything about it

  6. Soccer is a sport full of emotional actors. That player is so weak, that a taunt and trash talking prompted an attack. These are actions of a literal child. I have no respect for babies who can’t handle a little competition. 👎🏼

  7. I don't care about soccer but the only thing worse than a sore loser is a poor winner. Nice flop after a push. He belongs on a soccer field. Only athletes on the planet that spend a week in the ICU for turf toe.
