Watch UMass defeat No. 14 Hofstra with last-second goal

Well, they say it's never over 'till it's over.

Just ask Dan Muller of UMass lacrosse. 

On Thursday night, UMass faced off against No. 14 Hofstra in the Colonial Athletic Association Championship semifinals. With the game knotted at 12-12 and the clock winding down, UMass found a way to come up with a thrilling win. 

Hofstra turned the ball over and with about a second left on the clock Muller picked up the ball and ripped a shot toward the net. The ball bounced right before Hofstra goalie Jack Concannon, slipping past Concannon and securing the 13-12 win for UMass.

We should add that the shot was from 35-yards away.

Hofstra looked stunned, while the UMass team rushed the field to celebrate. Mullen said the moment was "easily a top moment" in his college career. 

UMass will face Towson in the CAA title game which is set for 1:00 p.m. ET on May 6.
