VIDEO: Ball hits power lines in Norwegian lower-league match

Sparks fly at Selbak after wild clearance.


The ball was kicked into some overhead power lines causing sparks to fly at Selbak during their Norwegian 3. divisjon Group 2 clash with Vestfossen on Saturday.

Damage was caused to the cables behind the goal at Selbak Stadion in Fredrikstad late in the second-half when a wild clearance appeared to dislodge one of them and cause it to droop.

Players and spectators alike stood to watch the fireworks as the referee signalled for a throw.

No further goals were scored and the hosts slumped to a 0-5 defeat leaving them bottom of the table by some distance with no wins to their name as the end of the season approaches.
