Torrey Pines High one better in near perfect overtime thriller

Bennett Shafer is congratulated after scoring a goal.

Torrey Pines sophomore and Del Mar resident Bennett Shafer scored the game-winner with 20 seconds left in overtime to lift No 21 Torrey Pines to a 10-9 victory over sixth-ranked St. Ignatius Prep in a non-conference lacrosse game.

St. Ignatius opened a 4-0 lead at the end of the first quarter, but Torrey Pines stormed back and led 5-4 at the half. A see-saw battled ensued as the teams traded goals throughout the second half before Torrey Pines’ Zack Zien scored with 32 seconds left in regulation for a 9-8 lead. St. Ignatius then answered with four seconds remaining to force overtime.

Sean Doyle had two goals and five assists for the Falcons, who improved to 9-3. St. Ignatius Prep had a nine-game winning streak snapped and falls to 13-4.

“It was pretty epic,” Torrey Pines coach Jon Zissi said. “We bounced back after a heartbreaking loss [to San Ramon Valley] on Wednesday and showed great resilience and pride after starting this game down 4-0. Our goal of the trip was to keep getting better and I think we were successful in doing that.”

The Falcons completed their two game Northern California trip with a 1-1 record against the state’s toughest teams, San Ramon Valley loss (7-6 OT) and St. Ignatius Prep win (10-9 OT).

Game recap: Doyle (2g 5a); Hurt (2g); Shafer (2g); Wilson (1g 1a); Black (1g); Perkins (1g); Zien (1g).
