In the final minute of play, Frontier had a big-time goal and a big-time save to earn a 10-9 win over Williamsville North in a nonleague girls lacrosse matchup on Friday.

Frontier had led by two goals in the second half, but the Spartans kept coming back to tie the game. Then with 1:11 left in regulation, Frontier won the draw, made a drive and Hannah Christiansen fired into the lower left corner with 40-seconds left in regulation for the one-goal lead.

But North had one final charge left. Frontier committed a turnover and was out of position but Emily Pastrnak made a save with three seconds left to preserve the win and keep the Falcons (3-0) undefeated.

“We played a good team in Williamsville North, but we did not play our best game,” Frontier coach Tim Myslinski said. “It was a back and forth game. I just felt our team rushed it instead of taking a breath. But it does show a lot of composure for us at the end of the game to finish it.”

In boys lacrosse, Chad Steinwachs scored the game-winning goal in overtime to give Williamsville North a 16-15 win over Section V’s Spencerport in a non-league meeting. Steinwachs finished with three goals for the Spartans (3-1) and Jon Lunney added four goals and two assists.
