'Ruthless' move sparks W-League sportsmanship storm


//

A controversial goal in the W-League has sparked a row over sportsmanship, after star Ellie Carpenter scored a goal while the opposing goalkeeper was injured.

The Canberra United player latched onto the ball and scored into an open goal after Western Sydney Wanders keeper Jade Whyman succumbed to a knee injury.

Whyman sprinted from her goal to outside the box to try and clear the ball but ended up dropping to the pitch after making contact, with what seemed to be a knee problem.

As she went down, players around her stopped as the ball dribbled towards the sideline.

It’s customary in football to kick the ball out of bounds if an injury has occurred on the field, because one team is a player down.

Carpenter did the complete opposite and thumbed her nose at football etiquette by sprinting to save the ball from going out and then chipping over the heads of defenders into the goal mouth.

The 18-year-old ignored complaints of opposition players who were fuming she took advantage of the injury.

Fans on social media also expressed their anger over the blatant disregard for the unwritten rules of football while others praised her "ruthlessness".
