Thanks to Sam White, Mt. Lebanon's boys lacrosse team will get a chance to win back-to-back WPIAL Division 1 championships.

White scored with less than 30 seconds to play Monday to send a semifinal against North Allegheny into overtime, then notched the winner in the second extra session to give the Blue Devils a 10-9 victory at Baldwin.

The Blue Devils trailed twice by three goals, including, 9-6, with 3:36 to play.

"We just knew we could get it done," Mt. Lebanon coach Mike Ermer said. "Our guys took care of business. They dug deep and found another level."

The game was a rematch of WPIAL Division 1 championship a year ago, which Mt. Lebanon won, 9-8. The Blue Devils rallied late in that game, too, with White notching the winner.

White finished with three goals Monday, while Brian Kelly had a goal and five assists for Mt. Lebanon.
