Using IR Sensors in Goal Line Technology?

Currently trying to make a small miniature project(high school) which uses goal line technology. I was thinking of attaching IR Sensors and Emitters to a side of a goalpost and have it connected to a circuit which made an LED Green for a certain amount of time whenever something broke the path between the IR Sensor and Emitter(the ball). Was wondering if this was feasible. Thoughts?
