Plenty will be on the line at 5:30 p.m. Monday when Quaker Valley hosts Pine-Richland in a girls lacrosse game at Chuck Knox Stadium. The game was initially scheduled to be played on April 21, but was postponed until Monday because of persistent lightning.
The Quakers won a heart-stopping 14-13 victory over Fox Chapel this past Thursday when they scored two goals in the final 47.4 seconds of the game.
Emily Kraus tied the game with 47.4 seconds left on a free position shot, and Aubrey Bouchard picked up a loose ball with about 15 seconds left, raced the length of the field and scored with 6.3 seconds left.
"My teammate Rachel Bould got an amazing check," she said. "I saw there was 15 seconds left, and she could have taken the ball in. But I was open right in the middle, and she got the ball to me. As a senior captain, I didn't want to let the team down. I just sprinted down the field, squared my hips up and hit the [left] corner."
