For "pontos corridos", I can't think of a sport in the USA that uses the system you describe. But... I'm not into sports, so you can't take my word for it.
I also thought of “sudden death” for “mata-mata”, but it doesn’t seem to fit your description. “Sudden death”, as you will see below, refers to ending games when there has been a tie at the end of the last time period. (I wrote this before reading your recent posting in which you agree that "sudden death" is not "mata-mata".)
The main criticism of sudden death is the quickness of ending the game, and the pressure on coaches and players. To the coaches, it does not seem appropriate once the goal is scored, the game is over and the opponent cannot attempt to answer the goal within the remaining time, creating a game where extra pressure is placed as to not create any mistakes.
In NCAA collegiate play in the United States, however, sudden death, adopted in 1999 for all championship play in addition to regular season play, remains. In 2005, the Division II Women's Championship game ended in sudden death as a goal was scored three minutes into the overtime to end the championship match.
Sudden death is also prevalent in youth play, for the safety of players.
