Storming the field during a sporting event usually involves handcuffs and being knocked off your feet by the men or women carrying the aforementioned handcuffs. In this absolutely ridiculous case, however, a fan managed to hug a player from his beloved team and even score a goal after getting himself onto the field of a soccer game in Europe on Wednesday night.
In the 102nd minute of a match between Buducnost Podgorica Lovcen in Montenegro -- with Buducnost moments from concluding a record-breaking championship season in front of a raucous home crowd -- a fan stormed the field with a flare. At that moment, play had been stopped and the home team was setting up for a free kick just outside the penalty box of the visitors. After that first fan drew plenty of attention, and his flare put off plenty of smoke to set the scene, another fellow came bundling onto the field.
With his face painted blue and white and wearing a matching replica jersey, the interloper hugged and picked up a player from the home team. And then he SCORED a goal, pushing aside someone to take a swipe at the ball that had been placed for the free kick.

Maybe he was engulfed by police after leaving the field but, wow, that was an epic field invasion. Moments after this fan's shot bounced into the net, the referee waved off the remaining time in the match, seemingly in disgust. This bizarro moment caps a memorable season for Buducnost, who set records for goals and points while also reeling off a memorable winning streak.
The title had been assured before this match, perhaps leaving the players in a jovial mood and clearly leaving the fans ready to party.
"We deserved this title because we won the most points in the history of the Montenegrin league," said Buducnost coach Miodrag Radulovic, according to UEFA.com. "And we scored the most goals."
Although the stats are not readily available, it seems a safe bet that this fan golazo also means that Buducnost's fans also scored the most goals in league history.
