La Salle's Matt Rambo was surrounded. There was a St. Joseph's Prep defender in front of him. There was another behind him. Another to his left, and another to his right. The senior attack simply drove through the tight defense to score the game's final goal Wednesday night and seal La Salle's 18th Catholic League boys' lacrosse title with an 11-6 win at Plymouth Whitemarsh. "He kept twirling and running and crashing into players until he fired it into the empty net," La Salle coach Bill Leahy said.

In just seven minutes, his team trailed by seven goals. But the coach's plan was working just fine. It was Bill Tierney's first game as coach at the University of Denver in 2010. He wanted the Pioneers to get a taste of big-time college lacrosse and they opened the season with a 15-9 loss at Syracuse's Carrier Dome. The freshmen who were on that Denver team are now seniors. On Saturday, the fourth-seeded Pioneers (14-4) will have a chance to show how far they have come when they meet No. 1 Syracuse (15-3)
