Nov. 19 (UPI) -- You likely weren't tuning into 8th tier English football this weekend, and you missed out on one of the best goals this season.

Alvechurch was facing Sheffield FC in a non-league match on Saturday at Lye Meadows.

Forward Daniel Dubidat was up at the opponent's box late in the second half.

Goalkeeper Lewis Gwilliams fired a very long goal kick from the left side. His blast traveled the entire length of the field until finding Dubidat. The striker brought the ball down with the outside of his right foot, before bringing it up to his knee. He twirled around the defender while juggling the touch. He then fell to the ground, while striking the ball toward net.

The attempt floated high above the goal before dropping down and drilling the crossbar, bouncing into the net. Sheffield goalkeeper Louis Jones never jumped to save the attempt, instead he just watched it sail over his head and into the net.

Alvechurch won the match 3-2.

Dubidat also scored in the 56th minute. The two scores were his 13th and 14th goals of the season. Tom Turton scored Alvechurch's first goal in the 41st minute.

After the goal went viral, Gwilliams was quick to temper the hype on his long pass, instead complimenting his teammate Dubidat.

"Wouldn't wanna take anything away from @DDubz9 to be fair, the touch and finish is outrageous," the goalkeeper tweeted.

Alvechurch travels to face Heath Hayes at 7:45 p.m. Tuesday in a cup match.
