VIDEO: Farmington, Minn., goalie scores into own net, flips off coaches and leaves ice
FARMINGTON, Minn. - Farmington senior goalie Austin Krause purposely scored a goal for the other team into his own net, then showed his middle finger in the direction of the coaching staff before leaving the ice in a Minnesota boys hockey game Tuesday against Chaska.
The goal scored late in the third period tied the game 2-2. Chaska went on to win the game 3-2.
Talk of the goal was rampant on Twitter and video of the incident is on YouTube.
A Twitter account belonging to someone identifying himself as Chaska assistant hockey coach Sean Bloomfield confirmed some of the details. Bloomfield is listed on Chaska's coaching staff on the Minnesota State High School League's website.
"Interesting game ... Hard fought both sides too bad it had to come to that," Bloomfield wrote on Twitter. "Feel for those seniors."
The video shows a Farmington goalie with the No. 1 - listed as Krause on the MSHSL team site - putting the puck into his own net, then gesturing toward the team bench before leaving the game.
