Nico Calabria, a member of the Concord-Carlisle boys' soccer team, scored a scissor-kick goal off a corner yesterday that would probably be on highlight reels even if he had two legs.

But he doesn't.

Calabria, a junior who is also an outstanding wrestler, finishing in third place in the Division 2 109-pound weight class in February, was born with only a left leg. And, wow, is it a good one.

C-C coach Ray Pavlik posted a video of this amazing goal by Calabria, scored in a 9-0 win over Newton South on Wednesday. Check it out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k2FzJVAHtSI

Calabria also plays for the U.S. Amputee National Team.

He and his Concord-Carlisle (4-0) team play next at Boston Latin on Friday.
