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.
