Hannah Cermack scored her fourth goal with 27 seconds left in the second overtime to lift host Ridgewood to an 11-10 win over Moorestown on Saturday, snapping the Quakers’ 88-game win streak.

The Quakers (11-1) had not lost since falling to the same Ridgwood team, 10-9, in the finals of the 2011 Tournament of Champions. Since then Moorestown has won the past three TOC titles and gone undefeated each year.

Ridgewood, ranked 13th in the Epoch Lacrosse North America Rankings, had taken a 6-2 halftime lead. But the second-ranked Quakers (also ranked No. 1 in the Rankings) battled back and took a 9-8 lead late in regulation before Cermark scored with just under two minutes to play to force overtime.
