La Salle's Zach Drake glanced at the Neumann University scoreboard before sprinting behind the net. He saw that just seconds remained in the Catholic League boys' lacrosse final against St. Joseph's Prep on Wednesday night. The score was tied. Someone had to do something, he said afterward. And his winning play - the goal that lifted La Salle to an 8-7 win - "just kind of happened. " The junior attackman came from behind the net, ran his defender into a pick from Stephen Hudak, and fired the ball into the goal with just 8.8 seconds left.

The La Salle lacrosse team formed two lines behind its bench and walked in unison toward the Plymouth Whitemarsh locker room. St. Joseph's Prep, whose bench was to the left, did the same. A quarter still remained to decide first place in the Catholic League. But lightning strikes behind the north stands Thursday night delayed the game for 28 minutes. Referees forced both teams to leave the field. And they never returned. The game was suspended with the score tied at 5. Play will resume at 3 p.m. Friday at La Salle.
