Lamar Neagle has goal incorrectly called back

It looked like Lamar Neagle had finally finished one of his numerous chances. But it was apparently too good to be true. Just as he expertly redirected Marco Pappa's cross into the back of the net, the offside flag went up.

That's a tough break as Neagle appears to have timed his run perfectly, looking even with the second-to-last defender when Pappa unleashed his pass. Not only that, but he also appears to have been behind the ball when Pappa struck it.

Just to drive home the point, here it is with a line drawn where the ball is. Notice how far out of position the assistant referee, is too?
