Austin Krause is already an internet legend. The Farmington High School (Minn.) senior is the star of a video that has gone viral this week, which shows him throwing an epic fit (video here) and scoring on his own goal to prove a point to his coaches. According to KMSP-TV in Minneapolis, Krause has received a 10-day suspension from the school for his antics. The puck that Krause put in his own net with 3:13 remaining in the third period tied the game at 2-2. As if the shenanigans weren’t already costly enough, Farmington went on to lose 3-2. On Wednesday, Krause reportedly explained the situation on on his Facebook page, via The Farmington Independent: “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 or gave me a chance to show them that I’m a better goalie but still wouldn’t trust me so I had it it with I asked a few of my players if they care if I did it and they didn’t care they thought it would be funny so at the third period they dumped it in I stopped it put in my net started to skate off then flicked the coaches not the team the coaches then I saluted them then got off.” “My hockey season is over. I did it for myself. (Like my status) if you think the coaches should quit:)” For what it’s worth, The Independent also pointed out that the sophomore goalie Krause is referring to, Gage Overby, has better statistics than Krause. Krause played 492 minutes in goal and had a record of 5-4-1 and a 2.80 goals against average. He stopped 87.7 percent of his opponents’ shots. Overby played 548 minutes and had a similar record of 5-5, but his goals against average of 2.42 and save percentage of 90.1 were better than Krause’s. Since Krause is a senior, he likely feels that he should have earned the majority of the playing time even if the two goalies are similar in their skill sets. As City Pages pointed out, Krause also shared a few tweets regarding the matter. Thanks to everyone for being there, I think the coaches are dumb founded on what happen:) — austin krause (@rider_600) February 13, 2013 Idc about how many ppl are talking **** or starting rumors it’s just a game get over it — austin krause (@rider_600) February 13, 2013 10 day suspension — austin krause (@rider_600) February 13, 2013 Whether you agree with him or not, Krause made his point. Assuming he’s telling the truth about some of his teammates thinking the own goal would be funny, it’s probably safe to say Farmington’s coaching staff doesn’t have unanimous respect from the hockey team. That is not uncommon in high school sports. Having a goalie score on his own net to tie a game and flip the coaches off, however, is quite rare.
