There are goals, and then there are GOOOOOOOOLs.

Darwin Quintero showed a share of them to Minnesota United fans, but Minnesotans were treated to a show-stopper golazo in a high school state championship game:

Keegan James from Blake scored this one on Friday. It’s a straight-up golazo.

Look, scoring from the halfway line is cool. Scoring directly off of a kickoff is even cooler.

But it was the circumstances of this goal that make it one of the greatest. After playing to a scoreless draw in regulation, Blake and Bemidji were headed into overtime, at least until this kick both started an ended things.

By the way, this goal gave Blake the championship.

Wow.
