Are these sentences correct:
1-I scored a goal and made my team win.
2-I scored a goal and had my team win.
3-I scored a goal and got my team to win.

(I make my team win by scoring the goal.)

In this case using the causative is awkward,

I scored a goal and made/had/got (i.e. forced )my team to win. :(

Try,

I scored the goal which won the game for my team.
I scored the winning goal.

:D

I agree with Cas. They are all strange. :wink:
