WHS Boys Win Union County Championship


Westfield High School Boys Lacrosse Team Wins Union County Tournament Via Absolutely Insane Comeback...

The Blue Devils found themselves trailing Summit 6-4 late in tonight's Union County Championship game and things looked bleak. There was less than a minute left and Westfield would need to score 2 goals against a vaunted Summit defense just to force overtime. Nick Bond made things interesting though when with 34 seconds remaining in regulation he scored from the left side off of a nice feed from James Bohlinger to make it 6-5. 23 seconds later, the nearly impossible happened and all hell broke loose.  

Following Bond's goal, Summit gained possession and immediately headed for the Westfield net. The ball found its way into Blue Devils goalie Toby Burgdorf's stick with approximately 15 seconds left. The senior net minder wasted no time and hurled a shot 80 yards down field that somehow evaded his counterpart and made its way into the net to tie the game at 6 with 11 seconds remaining. The Westfield players and sideline erupted in celebration and the game then headed to overtime. Following a scoreless initial overtime period and just before the 2nd overtime session was set to expire, Devon McLane fired a low rocket that found the back of the net to give Westfield a 7-6 walk off victory and for the second consecutive year, the Blue Devils won the UCT Championship in an overtime thriller.
