During an ongoing match, a little boy wearing blue suddenly runs into the field as if he was chasing the big players. Luckily, the players were running in the opposite direction, and they did not collide with the toddler. When his mom ran after him, the audience was shocked! The incident happened so fast that even the presenters did not notice…

The boy, identified by the Cincinnati Enquirer as Moscow, Ohio’s Zaydek Carpenter, was seen running onto the north end of the field in the second half of an MLS game between FC Cincinnati, and visiting Orlando City, SC.

When the little boy ran into the field, he looked back to see his mother run after him. She was able to tackle him down. According to the foreign media “9gag,” the woman is Morgan Tucker. She and the little boy were excitedly watching the game, when she found her 2-year-old son, Zaydek Carpenter, run into the field. Stunned, she hurriedly ran after her son and tackled him down, and quickly returned to their seats, hoping that it did not affect the game.

Carpenter’s mad dash was quickly tackled by his mother, Morgan Tucker, who showed remarkable quickness in sprinting to her son on the field.

Although Tucker was successful in getting her son, she slipped before tackling him down due to the wet grass. Picking up her son, she was able to retrieve her glasses that fell before they hurried back to their seats. Cheers and laughter were heard from the audience. What a show!

The exasperated mother was seen grinning sheepishly as she approached the sideline with her giggling son in her arms.

Mom Tucker revealed to the media that she was too nervous at the time. She was afraid that her son would affect the game, and on the other hand, she was afraid of them being hit by the football.

“I was so embarrassed that I blushed!” Tucker admitted.

She did not know the real reason why her son ran to the field, though she speculated that he wanted to go near the athletes and play with them.

Tucker hasn’t commented publicly about the incident yet, but she was pictured by Enquirer photographer Sam Greene with a smiling Zaydek later in the evening.
