2001 World Cup - Dynasty v. Aftershock

Can anyone explain the controversy behind this match and/or direct me to a video? I've heard references of it and such, but have never really seen an explanation.

Thanks!

Someone older than me can correct me if I'm wrong - I believe Dynasty won the game against shock but the time ran out right before the player (Brad Maughn?) hung the flag. Since he was so close, they gave him the hang anyway. Pro tournaments ran much differently back then and it was point based, so shock would have won if they didn't give them the flag hang. It is briefly covered in Sunday Drivers. Hope that helps

How interesting. Yeah, I used to love watching the old games in the era of Avalanche and Image, but I never got to see this game and always wondered about the controversy. Thanks! Very frustrating to hear that that's how things went down.
