Three more strong photos in a wide-ranging category. First place: Fantastic action and all the teammates faces are directed toward the flipper. A perfect moment, and kudos to the photographer for staying through double overtime. Second place: We laughed out loud at this image. A great found moment. The photographer was paying attention. Third place: Pure emotion. A solid shot well-cropped and technically correct. This boy's crouch encompasses his teammates' sadness.
