A Farmington goalie's act of defiance goes viral

Email

Farmington goaltender Austin Krause wanted to celebrate Senior Night his own way, and it's landed him a 10-day suspension.

Krause purposely scored a goal into his own net, then raised his middle finger in the direction of the coaching staff and gave a salute before leaving the ice in the third period of a Feb. 12 hockey game at Schmitz-Maki Arena.

The Farmington school district responded to the incident with a statement on its website Wednesday afternoon.
