One of the two top corners of a goal in a sporting event such as a soccer or lacrosse game. "Upper" refers to the top, "Ninety" refers to the ninety degree corner. They are the same as the 3 and 4 holes on an ice hockey goal. The Upper Ninety is an area of the goal that is hard to hit with the ball (due to small area and proximity to goal posts) but it is typically even harder for the goalie to cover the corners, thus making an Upper Ninety shot a feat of skill.
Jack shot from too far out but hit the upper ninety and scored anyway because the goalie couldn't jump that far and that fast to block the ball.

Jill likes to practice hitting the upper nineties of the lacrosse goal so she will instinctively shoot there during a live game.
