Video: Minnesota State’s 180-plus-foot, banked, own goal on a delayed penalty

Here’s something you don’t see every day. And probably something Jimmy Mullin and Minnesota State would like to never see again.


From more than 180 feet away, Mullin banked a pass off the boards and into his own net while Mavericks goaltender Cole Huggins was pulled for a delayed penalty.

That goal — yes, announcer, it was — gave Alabama-Huntsville a 3-2 lead in the second period of Friday’s game. The Chargers’ Madison Dunn got credit for his second goal of the night.

“That’s one you don’t plan on,” Minnesota State coach Mike Hastings told the Mankato Free Press. “I don’t know what to say, other than that’s kind of the way our night went.”

The Mavericks earned a 3-3 tie when Bryce Gervais evened the game with a power-play goal in the third period.

Here are all of the goals from the game:
