And this is why we love sports!

Just days after his father died suddenly, a Scituate High School lacrosse player scored the game-winning goal that sent his team to the state championship, which takes place this Friday.

Will Robinson passed away after suffering a medical event June 6 while in his Scituate home, according to the 50-year-old’s obituary. He left behind his wife, Erika, and his two children, Willy, 17, and Mylah, 13.

According to Boston 25 News, Robinson’s son, Willy, is a member of the varsity lacrosse team for Scituate as a junior. Just a day after his father died, he racked up five goals in a game against Nashoba to lead Scituate to a Final Four berth in the state tournament.

And if that’s not crazy enough, in the next game Tuesday night against Falmouth, he scored the game-winning goal — and in overtime at that — to punch his team’s ticket to the state championship, according to The Boston Globe.

And the insanity doesn’t stop there … remember how I brought up earlier that Willy has a sister named Mylah?

She also won a lacrosse championship after her father died, per Boston 25 News.

Just an absolutely incredible story that you know God has his hands all over!


This story needs to be in one of ESPN’s “There’s No Place Like Sports” commercials, just too perfect.
