Own goal in soccer

Has any other SID dealt with an own goal in soccer while using next generation? We had one at our last home match. I've been trying to figure this out for the last 2 weeks. I've finally figured out how to change the score from 5-0 to 4-1 by giving the shot to the opponent (my team scored the own goal), but it still credits TEAM as the goal scorer both in the box score and in the scoring summary, instead of saying "own goal." Has anyone else dealt with an own goal in NG and if so, how did you score it?

    As you probably know, in the DOS scoring program, when inputting the own goal shot, use the uniform number TM for the player, and
    this will cause the goal to be displayed automatically as OWN GOAL in the
    Play-by-Play and Scoring Summary. There is not a separate input code for
    "Own Goal". Will submit this to find out if something similar is planned for the next generation soccer. In the meantime, are you able to use the Comment function to further describe the own goal?
