No-look shot sends Colorado to club lacrosse national final

Friday May 15th, 2015

Who says club sports can't be exciting?

In a finish that requires multiple viewings to fully grasp, Colorado's Colin MacIlvennie broke an 11-11 overtime tie against Virginia Tech with a sudden-death, no-look game winner in the MCLA Division I Final Four.

MacIlvennie struck, with an insane over-the-head, behind the back inside the final minute in the first overtime of what had been a tight game. Virginia Tech rallied back in the fourth quarter to tie after Colorado scored five unanswered goals in the third. It was, we imagine, a final four game for the ages. Just watch the overall state of shock on both sides after it goes in.

Colorado takes on Grand Canyon Saturday for the title. If it stays close and this is any indicator, might be worth tuning in.

Full highlights are below.
