p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Shooting PK's - suggestions?


The finals of my daughter's soccer tourney came down to PK's. No overtime periods (which was terrible, but what can you do).

Any suggestions for shooting the PK's? I focused on my daugher's team - shooters, then 3 rounds of shooting the team watching the goalie try to make a save or shotting a really bad angle through the goal net (with no good result).

Thanks,
bob

Two options as far as I'm concerned. Either you get behind the net, off to one side (maybe 8-10 feet off the post), get as low as you can and shoot the shooter. Or you go up the sideline and look back on the keeper. I've found the shooter shots to be sorta blah. Here are a couple of keeper shots:

If there's a way to do it that allows you to get all of the elements (keeper, shooter, players on the half line) into the shot, I haven't figured it out.

Well, you could be like the video guys here who get to go out on the field and stand just behind the shooter and get great captures

GO Pro both the goalie and the shooter and edit the video in post.

I always struggle with this as well. Usually what I do depending on which team I am covering or if I'm covering both teams, I'll shoot the goalie, and then if a goal is scored I'll turn and shoot the kicker, IMHO a goal kick taken of the kicker is rather boring. Goalie shots are great, and then the reaction if the PK is made is good by the kicker is a good shot.

^I do the same thing...we're not allowed on the field so I'll traverse the sideline...depending on who's shooting or 'saving' for the team I'm covering.

Their GK, saved this one...

Thanks for the suggestions - agreed on the shooter pics being blah. I could probably take them in warm ups and they'd look the same.

Great pics as always Russ and Chris.

I usually set up behind the end lines because they give me the cleanest backgrounds (as clean as they get on these fields). Should've moved to the sidelines to get both views.

Hopefully I won't see PK's next weekend in NJ.

I like the GoPro idea...Somehow I don't think the officials would've though.
