East Grand Rapids never led during regulation of the 2009 Division 2 Boys Lacrosse Final, trailing Orchard Lake St. Mary’s at most by six goals during the second period.

But with the end of overtime staring the Pioneers down, Josh Drummond gave his team the only advantage that mattered.

Drummond scored an unassisted goal with 1:36 to play in the extra period, giving EGR its first and only lead and a 13-12 win that clinched the program’s third-straight Division 2 championship.

Drummond also had scored twice during the fourth period as East Grand Rapids mounted its comeback and  outscored St. Mary’s 5-2 to deadlock the score and send the game to overtime.

Drummond went on to play at Grand Canyon University. Jake Coretti, who netted the tying goal with 3:43 to go in regulation, was a sophomore that season and went on to play at Rutgers.
