MLS sideline reporter Kelli Tennant was hit in the back of the head with a stray soccer ball during pregame warmups before Saturday's Vancouver Whitecaps game against the L.A. Galaxy.
Tennant was doing a remote segment for Time Warner Cable (TWC) SportsNet when she was hit, despite the best efforts of a colleague who was unable to stop the ball from hitting her:
The scene was reminiscent of an incident that occurred with Jessica Kastrop in Germany last month. However, Tennant proved herself to be a true professional as she continued on with her report as if nothing happened. She confirmed later via Twitter that she was doing fine:
Haha I'm good ;) “@TaylorTwellman: I know people are joking about @KelliTennant but are you ok girl?! headache/dizzy?! Let me know #VANvLA”

We're glad to hear that Tennant is OK. Maybe the Whitecaps should warn their fans about flying soccer balls. Oh, wait:
