High School Hockey Player Scores Amazing Lacrosse-Style Goal (Video)
In lacrosse, a lacrosse goal is just a goal. But in hockey, a lacrosse goal is something very special.
I know that sounded like gibberish, but bear with me. You see, a so-called “lacrosse goal” in hockey is when a player picks up the puck with his stick and throws it in the net like a lacrosse player would do in lacrosse. Obviously, it takes a lot of skill to be able to pull off something like this in a game setting, and it also requires some lax defense, so occurrences are very rare. However, we do see such goals from time to time.
Now we have another one. And it’s not from any pro, semi-pro, or major junior league. It’s from a high school hockey game in North Dakota. The goal-scorer is Alec Rauhauser of Century High School in Bismarck, and he scored the rare goal on Tuesday night—it was the middle goal of a hat trick.
Take a look:
If you clicked on the links above and watched the goals scored by Crosby and Deruns, then you realize that this goal is a carbon copy of those. It’s like the kid was practicing this move and just waiting for the perfect moment to bust it out…and that perfect moment finally came!
