High school lacrosse team wins on perfectly executed hidden ball play with 3 seconds left

Props to the Malvern Prep Friars who executed one of the best hidden ball plays we've seen in a while. With the game tied at 10-10 with seconds left there needed to be some creativity to wrestle away a win.

Here's how the play works: The key is the ball movement that led up to the critical keeper.

No.2 fakes like he's handing off to No. 20, when in reality he just tossed the ball in the air and caught it himself. While half the defense followed No. 20 the ball carrier ran to the top of the screen and found an easy pass.

Granted, the goalie wasn't faked out -- but nobody was there to close on the ball carrier. It set up the shot and the win. Well done.
