SRV upsets #1 Torrey Pines in overtime in San Diego

Received word that SRV has beaten undefeated and # 1 ranked in the state Torrey Pines in San Diego in overtime 8-7. Torrey Pines ranked #1 and undefeated (10-0) and winner over SI 14-11 lost in overtime to SRV now 9-1 a team that began the season experiencing a crushing loss to SI 16-4. I know that the Wolves jumped out to a 6-0 lead at half time . TP closed to 6-3 after three quarters and SRV lead 7-5 with only a few minutes left .However the southerners came back to tie it 7-7 sending the game to sudden death. The Wolves dug down deep and after a TP turnover won it in 2 minutes of OT 8-7 a huge win for the Wolves and for Nor Cal lacrosse. Torrey Pines is a team loaded with (14) D1 recruits . I frankly based on the SI comparable scores and that TP had crushed teams from Colorado, Texas, Laurenceville, and other good So Cal teams did not think the Wolves had a chance to win it . I thought that TP was a 5-6 goal favorite. I hope someone who was there can give us some insight into the game and in particular the last few minutes and the overtime. It must have been very exciting .The text I received from a SRV mom was " WE FREAKIN BEAT THESE GUYS"!!!! They did indeed. Congrats to SRV. That was huge.
