This's football (soccer). I wonder whether "tear down" means to pull down?

84 min: Kovacic comes on for
Casemiro. Danilo tears down the right and fires low and hard through the six-yard box. Ronaldo is waiting to tap in, but Manolas sticks out a leg to divert the ball away from danger. Marvellous defending. Now there’s a phrase we’ve not had the chance to trot out too often tonight.
