mccauslan’s answer ….

How is it possible, in a game of soccer .. to score three successive goals – without any other player touching the ball in between?

(1) Home goal?

(2) Goal from kick restart?

(3) Goal from second half restart?

– and Nick Yates is forbidden from responding.

There are prizes.

    A fella – he’s centre-forward, he pits the ba’ through his own goal. That’s one.Well, then, this same fella picks up the ba’ and kicks off, frae the centre. But he disnae pass, see. No’ fear. He belts the ba’ doon the park, and chases after it, and the a dirty big full-back ca’s the pins frae him –
    PENALTY.

    So – he does the same thing again – batters it doon the park .. gets the hems pit oan him again by the dirty big full-back …. and’ ………….
