BOSTON — Leading by four goals heading into the fourth quarter of Saturday’s Division 1 Eastern Massachusetts state championship, the Lincoln-Sudbury boys lacrosse team was 12 minutes away from its third straight state title.
L-S led in the final frame but after three goals from BC High, with the last coming from junior Charlie Pyne with 1:15 left in regulation, the Warriors called a timeout with 45 seconds left.
After an L-S turnover, senior goaltender Trevor van Leer made two big saves on two hard BC High shots from in close and the L-S defense made a massive clear.
The Warriors then carried the ball into the attacking zone for the final 25 seconds, as L-S held on for a nail-biting 8-7 win over BC High at Boston University’s Nickerson Field.
