Ask the ref?

Maybe there should be a sticky for this kind of thing like the football forum?

Anyways, here's my scenario for those who would know.

Team A takes a shot from about 20 yards out. The ball hits the crossbar, goes straight up in the air and lands about a foot or two outside the goal line dead center of the goal. A defender from Team B traps the ball and the keeper picks it up. Now I know a defender cannot deliberately pass it back to the keeper and the keeper use his hands, but what about this case? Is trapping it akin to a pass in this case?

If it's a pass, what's the call?
