The Harkemase Boys, of Holland’s fourth tier, were up 2-0 when Dennis van Duinen made a beautiful run, shook off a defender, beat the keeper, and faced a completely empty net. With glory a heartbeat away, he doinked the ball right over the crossbar.

That howler turned out to matter: Harkemase gave up the winning goal in stoppage time and lost to Capelle, 3-2.
