złapać daleko podaną piłkę /mocno podaną piłkę /w polu punktowyzm
Explanation:
This is not a standard expression. A ligthning can be a very strongly thrown ball (mocno podaną)or one thrown far down the field (daleko podaną do przodu) - a lightning pass- in football jargon, resulting in a substantial gain in yardage or even a touchdown (pole punktowe) or all three: złapać mocno podaną piłkę w polu punktowym.
