Help me score on breakaways, please

I suck at breakaways.

Short version: What works for you on breakaways?

Long version: I play in two C leagues in Maryland, so the competition level isn't too high. I'm one of the better players on both of my teams. I have very good speed for this level, and a decent but inconsistent and inaccurate shot.

Because I have decent speed, I get around 1 breakaway per game, but I don't score on them much. Help? What should I do?

Usually I take a look at the goalie and try to take a forehand shot where I see some space. It usually doesn't work. I tried going backhand for a while, but I have some difficulty elevating backhand shots in close, so I end up hitting an extended leg pad. I've been practicing elevating my backhand, but it isn't consistent yet.

Thoughts? Suggestions? Tricks & tips?
