High school team goes rogue, tries to start 2 goalies

The Tenafly High School boys' hockey team sent out two goalies to start their game against St. Joseph's of Montvale in New Jersey on Sunday, only to find that doing so was against the rules.

Apparently, this is against the rules

The Tenafly High School hockey team must have known it would be in tough against its opponent, so it decided to try something new. 

In one of the more innovative approaches to defence ever seen, Tenafly attempted to sneak two goalies (and four skaters) onto the ice for the start of its game against St. Joseph's of Montvale in New Jersey on Sunday.

It's a move that almost seems reasonable based on the fact they ended up getting thumped 10-0.

Unfortunately for Tenafly, trotting out two netminders is blatantly against the rules and resulted in a delay-of-game penalty.
