Last night I watched my 10 year old son play an incredible game only to come up short at the end. They were down 5-1 in the 3rd, then he got them back in the game with 3 straight goals. So 5-4, with about 2 minutes left, he stole the puck right outside the blue line and had a clear path to the net. He had 2 defenders chasing him and I think he panicked and rushed his shot a little too early and it sailed a foot wide. In typical fashion, the other team got the puck and went right down scored, game over.
I'm not a screamer at all, but even if I was, its was hard to get mad at him. They have a pretty small team as it is, so he played probably 60% of the game at that point and was probably going on a 3 minutes shift, so I can understand making a mistake. After the game, I just made jokes about it.
