* ''Film/{{The Replacements}}'': With a trip to the playoffs on the line, the Washington Sentinels, a team of scabs due to a strike, are trailing a powerful Dallas team that crossed the picket line earlier in the week. Nigel Gruff, the placekicker, goes on to kick the field goal and tie the game, but because he's threatened with losing his pub if he saves the game for the Sentinels, Falco, the QB and holder, changes the play, takes the ball for himself and rushes into the endzone for the game winning TD. Subverted, however, when a holding call negates the TD. Played straight however, when they try for the win on the next play and get the TD, earning the Sentinels a playoff spot (of course, Nigel was injured on the fake anyway and couldn't have kicked the field goal).

It's nearing the end of regulation of a sports contest the main characters are in, and it's a close game. Someone makes a comment that the team could tie it up, and beat the opposition in overtime.[[note]] for confused Brits: this does not refer to the enhanced pay rate earned when you exceed your weekly contactual hours at work. This is what British sporting convention refers to as '''Extra Time''', ie "Manchester United won the 1992 European Cup against Bayern Munich with two goals scored in extra time"[[/note]] They end up doing one better by getting the job done in regulation.

*** [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome "Can Manchester United score? They ALWAYS score..."]]"]]. It has been noticed many times that referees at Old Trafford tend to suffer from a different sense of the passage of time, and add unfeasible amounts of extra time seemingly unjustified by actual stoppages in play. This phenomenon has been referred to as "Fergie Time", for some reason.

* During game 6 of the 2013 StanleyCup Playoffs, the Chicago Blackhawks were down 2-1 to the Boston Bruins with less than two minutes to go in the third period. If Boston won, it would have forced a game 7. It would have been enough for Chicago's Bryan Bickell to score to tie the game, but just 17 seconds later, Dave Bolland scored the Stanley Cup-winning goal with just under a minute left in the game.
