Storm Barney gets assist on wind-aided own goal (VIDEO)

This might be the most bizarre own goal you have ever seen — thanks to an assist from the 70 mph winds of Storm Barney.

A video captured the hilarious moment Thurrock FC defender Kamarl Duncan was near the halfway line when he attempted to play the ball up field when a sudden gust of wind had other ideas and lifted the ball into the air and blew it back towards keeper Rhys Madden — who watched helplessly as it bounced over his head and into the back of the net.

Tuesday's incredible own goal put opponents Romford FC 1-0 up while frustrated Thurrock first team manager Mark Stimson fumed because the referee refused to call off the match.

The Isthmian League match, at Thurrock's Ship Lane ground in Aveley, Essex, ended in a 1-1 draw — thanks to Storm Barney's passing wind.
