I built regulation-size goal out of 2 inch pvc pipe, with the bottom extending out to the sides and 3 vertical support rods in the back, for sturdiness. The USA Hockey 72 inch net I bought for $30 doesn't fit my net. I need a custom oversize net, but don't want to dish out $200 for one. By my measurements, it's 9 x 17 feet tight, so to have some play I'll need at least 11 x 19 net.

I'm a nubie so I don't have the hardesh shot out there, but it's decent. Would something like this hold up decent?
