Even if it was a conventional shot from 10 or more yards out, it would have been the center of discussion.

But the fact that Gavin’s shot, off a nice dodge move from behind the cage, was a stuff shot the crease area that gave Manhasset a 10-9 win in the New York Class B East semifinals has made it a source of controversy.

Manhasset supporters argue that  the shot was legal because, under high school rules, a crease violation is determined when the ball breaks the plane of the goal. In college, it’s the release point.

Yorktown supporters counter that Gavin propelled himself into crease to get around Yorktown goalie Liam Donnelly.

Here’s a photo and screen shots of the play.
