High School Goalie Scores on Own Net, Flips Off Bench, and Leaves

A frustrated Minnesota high school senior goalie scores on his net with a 2-1 lead.

Farmington high school (Minn.) held a 2-1 lead over Chaska high school with just over three minutes remaining in the third period of their game on Thursday night when the truly bizarre happened.

Farmington senior goalie Austin Krause retrieved a puck behind his net, skated to the crease and put the puck in his net. Krause then proceeded to remove his gloves, and while skating off the ice, turned to his bench, flipped them off and gave them a salute before exiting the ice. Here is video of the incident:

Farmington would give up a power play goal later in regulation and end up losing the game by a score of 3-2. Krause's motivations for what has to be one of the stranger incidents you'll ever see in any sport are unclear, though rumors seem to indicate that Krause, who was a senior playing on Farmington's Senior Night, was upset at losing out on playing time in his final year to a sophomore goalie.
