Quaker Valley coach Nellie Kraus had not seen a game this season where her Quakers' lacrosse team was tied going into the second half of a game.
That's precisely the situation her team faced, however, deadlocked with Mt. Lebanon, 4-4, heading into the second half of Thursday's Division 1 girls lacrosse championship game at Highmark Stadium.
Panic, though, wasn't in the equation.
"We're a second-half team, and I knew we could do it," said Kraus after her team held off Mt. Lebanon for an 11-9 victory and their first WPIAL Division 1 lacrosse championship. Quaker Valley had won two Division 2 titles in 2009 and 2010.
