Elle Hokanson has perfected something like a soccer magic trick. She’s a defender on Pocatello’s girls soccer team, which means she isn’t usually involved her team’s scoring attack, but something tends to keep happening: When Poky plays Preston, like on Tuesday night, she’s found a way to chip in shots from some 30 yards out, scoring in a way that makes you squint.

Did she really mean to do that?
