find the net
Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
- (idiomatic, soccer) to score a goal
2011 November 5, Phil Dawkes, “QPR 2 - 3 Man City”, BBC Sport:
- It is testimony to QPR's spirit then that it was they who next found the net as Bothroyd's goalbound header from an Armand Traore cross ultimately found the net courtesy of the back of Helguson, who was on the goalline but - despite the protestations of a number of City players - not offside.
