Hello everyone. This is football (soccer). I don't understand the word "skidding off" here. What does it mean?

72mins: Vargas has a brilliant chance to grab a goal from just inside the penalty area, but the Napoli forward can only snatch at a volleyed attempt and send the
ball skidding off the turf and into the gloves of Quinonez. Meanwhile, it's party time in the stands for La Roja's supporters.
