A high school hockey goalie in Minnesota purposely scored a goal for the other team, made an obscene gesture to his coach and left the ice Tuesday.

Krause’s own goal tied the game begween his Farmington team and Chaska 2-2 with 3:13 lft in the third period, the newspaper reported. Chaska won 3-2.
The incident wad videoed and posted on YouTube.
Krause then posted on Facebook that he felt coaches unfairly favored a sophomore goalie.
“They played this sophomore goalie for the starter, he was terrible, I would try and talk to the coaches about this and tell them I want playing time but they never really listen to me,’’ Krause wrote.
Coaches have not yet commented. The school said it would look into the incident.
