KSLL Final
LAX Umpire Awaits the Start of the Last 4:47

Here is the beginning of the last 4:47 with the game between Sacred Heart Academy and Eastern High School tied at 7-7.

The game was completed at approximately 9:15am ... making it the longest girls Lacrosse game in state history (38 hours and 15 minutes).

The final score was Sacred Heart Academy, 8; Eastern High School, 7.
