High school goalie scores in own net, peaces out
By Allan Muir
There's going out on a high note.
And then there's this.
Seems young Austin Krause, a senior goalie at Farmington (Minn) High School, was less than pleased at his loss of ice time of late. So with his team holding a 2-1 late-third period lead over Chaska HS last Thursday, he decided to voice his concerns in memorable fashion.
Krause picked up a Chaska dump-in and tucked it neatly into his own net to tie the game. Then he dropped his gloves, flipped off his coaches and departed the ice. Would be nice to say that his teammates rallied after being hung out to dry by this punk kid, but Chaska scored again, this time without the help of Krause, to seal the win in the third. (s/t to Hairy Greg for pointing this one out.)
