Here’s how The Post covered the crazy ending of Monday night’s WCAC boys’ lacrosse final:
There were still more than 10 seconds left in Monday’s Washington Catholic Athletic Conference boys’ lacrosse championship when Gonzaga’s Matt Borda stepped behind his own goal to throw a full-field pass. Nursing a one-goal lead, the sophomore defenseman hoped to get the clock moving and all but end the game.
Instead — with the Good Counsel defense pressed up trying to cause a turnover — the heave found the back of the net for an improbable insurance goal that sent Borda sprinting around high-fiving his defensive teammates and got the Eagles on the sideline bouncing. With a second straight title-game comeback for Gonzaga assured, the play proved a well-deserved chance to kick off the celebration of its 10-8 win a little early....
“When that one goes in, you just know you got it — the Gods are on your side,” senior David Planning said. “When that goes in, you just breathe a sigh of relief.”
The video above gets that idea across pretty well. I mean, that’s insane.
