I was 12 years old...

We were down one goal with the season on the line.

An errant breakout pass found its way on my stick outside the other teams blue line, I stalled for a second by straddling the line until my team was onside, then I accelerated quickly to the off wing and drove wide, faked the pass to a teammate (all I could hear was "SHOOT, SHOOT") looked up and sniped a goal top corner right as the final buzzer sounded. Tie game, no overtime, no shootout.

A loss would have ended the tournament for us, but the tie allowed us to advance. We ended up winning the Golden Stick tournament that year as the host. And then the next year as well. Good memories.
