Gulliver senior Nicole Harris watched as the potential game-tying shot from American Heritage Boca/Delray senior Sarah Coy hit the crossbar, quickly cleared by a defender with nine minutes remaining.
“My heart dropped, to be honest,” said Harris, who stood 30 yards away from the play.
Senior Madeleine Intriago tacked on an additional score five minutes later for the Raiders, who beat the Stallions 4-2 in the Class 2A regional final Tuesday night in Delray Beach.
Gulliver (20-0-4) won the Class 3A state championship in 2011 for the program’s first title but moved down a classification and lost to American Heritage 5-1 in the regional final last year. more
