Dear all,
this is from the novel I Believe in a Thing Called Love by Maureen Goo. This is a description of a soccer game.

My teammate Leah Hill and I made split-second eye contact before she passed the ball to me. I leaped above the matching gleaming braids of Eastridge’s defense and powered the ball down into the corner of the net.

I think the narrator powered the ball with her head. Is this correct?
