LONDON (AP) - A goalkeeper was attacked by a teenage fan who came onto the field during a match in the fourth tier of English soccer.
In Monday's game at Gillingham, Wycombe goalkeeper Jordan Archer was about to take a goal kick during stoppage time when the spectator entered the field and leaped toward him.
Later, Kent police in southern England announced that a 17-year-old was arrested on "suspicion of assault."
Wycombe took the lead in the 85th minute and won 1-0 win at Gillingham.
This season, Sheffield Wednesday goalkeeper Chris Kirkland was attacked during a second-tier game by a Leeds fan, who was sentenced to jail for four months.
