The La Salle lacrosse team took its shot at one of the top programs in North America on Friday. The Explorers came awfully close to a statement victory.
La Salle scored a flurry of late goals to force overtime, but fell to visiting Hill Academy of Ontario, 12-11.
La Salle (5-4) trailed by 6-2 at halftime and 10-7 in the fourth quarter. Zach Drake's second goal sent the game to overtime.
Johns Hopkins recruit Jake Fox won it 16 seconds into overtime after Hill controlled the faceoff. Hill plays exclusively against top competition across the United States. It is ranked in the U.S. top five by several services.
