    Default that was too late = it was too late?

    "
    he put them both into his mouth

    we both tried to get the coins
    but it was too late.
    "
    Can "that was too late" substitute for "it was too late" above?
    that was too late = it was too late?

    Either would be OK. Please use capitals and punctuation, as appropriate, in your posts.
