"That may have been the most exciting game of lacrosse I've ever been a part of," Watauga coach Holly Quick said. "What a way to end the season."
West Forsyth did not go down easily. The Titans retook the lead by a goal, but Watauga scored the next two to take a 10-9 lead late in the game.
Watauga's defense was able to keep the lead, which gave the Pioneers the victory.
Goalkeeper Meghan Bisignani had eight overall saves, six in the second half. West Forsyth took nine shots in the second half.
"That's a 67 percent save percentage for the half, which is incredible," Quick said.
