Eight times, Birmingham United’s girls lacrosse team had to come back against Hartland during the 2012 Division 1 Final.

Finally, with eight seconds to play in overtime, Kathy Quigley put Birmingham ahead to stay.

Quigley, then a junior, tied the score with her fourth goal of the game with 1:29 to play in the extra period. Then, with the final seconds ticking away, she sprinted across the front of the goal and fired the game winner.

The future University of Michigan midfielder scored five goals total June 9, 2012, and senior Sara Feiten also scored twice during overtime and four goals total for Birmingham. Feiten went on to play at Rollins College in Florida.

Watch below the game-tying and winning goals from Quigley from the MHSAA Network.
