Duke notre dame lacrosse championship: Looking Back at Best of Duke – Notre Dame in the Past Decade
Looking Back at Best of Duke – Notre Dame in the Past Decade
Story LinksSince Duke head coach John Danowski renewed the rivalry between Duke and Notre Dame in 2010, the Blue Devils and Irish have played 19 times with Duke winning 10 and the Irish nine. The 19 matchups have brought memorable individual and team performances from both sides as Notre Dame fared better in the regular season and Duke always seemed to have the answer in the postseason.
With the 26th meeting originally scheduled to be played Saturday, April 5 at Arlotta Stadium, we look back at some of the best for the Blue Devils.
May 31, 2010 | National Champs! Duke Captures 1st NCAA Title with 6-5 Win over Notre Dame
It was one of the most memorable moments in NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Championship history as CJ Costabile won the faceoff in overtime and raced down the field in five seconds to score the winning goal to give Duke its first NCAA Lacrosse Championship in school history.
“It’s sick,” Costabile said about scoring the game-winning goal. “The best feeling about it is we set this goal from the beginning of the year. Guys who have been here before me, [those guys] who have been here three times before and finally seeing them walk-off that field with a big smile on their faces are the best moment about that.”
Neither team led by more than a goal in a game that featured four lead changes and five ties. The 11 combined goals were the fewest goals in and NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Championship game history.
May 19, 2013 | PHILLY BOUND: Lawson Scores 5 to Lead Duke
NCAA. com Highlights
After losing to the Irish at Koskinen 13-5 during the regular season, the Blue Devils had a chance for redemption in the NCAA Quarterfinals at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. And they did so in thrilling fashion with senior captain
“I thought they [Notre Dame] were brilliant today,” said Danowski. “Their faceoff guy was terrific. Their goalie was tremendous. They shot the ball extremely well. It was one of those you hate to see someone lose. With that being said, I am extremely proud of our guys from beginning to end. We wanted to play for 60 minutes. We certainly don’t script these endings, last week or this week. We just wanted to play the game.”
The two teams went into halftime knotted 6-6 and finished 45 minutes of action still even at 9-9. Notre Dame scored twice in the opening six minutes of the fourth quarter to take an 11-9 lead with 9:29 remaining. Christian Walsh pulled Duke back within one a minute later.
With 3:30 to play and neither team having scored for five minutes, Duke goaltender Kyle Turri
Duke rode the wave of momentum and won the ensuing faceoff, the 15th win of the day for Duke’s draw man Brendan Fowler. Just like he had done for much of the game, Lawson came up with another huge play as he beat Notre Dame goalie John Kemp low for the game winner.
May 26, 2014 | BACK-TO-BACK! Duke Beats Notre Dame for NCAA Title
Just 372 days removed from the last NCAA Tournament win in 2013, Duke again broke Notre Dame’s hearts again, cruising to an 11-9 for the second consecutive NCAA title.
Wolf was named the NCAA Championship Most Outstanding Player. Deemer Class, Will Haus, Myles Jones, Kyle Keenan and Henry Lobb joined him on the NCAA All-Tournament Team.
Duke built an 8-2 advantage midway through the third quarter and led 8-4 with 15 minutes to play. Notre Dame rallied in the fourth, going on a 4-1 run to pull within one, 9-8, with five minutes remaining. Wolf fed Kyle Keenan for a 10th goal with 2:39 to play and Wolf sealed it with 23 seconds left – his 64th of the season.
Fowler won 13-of-22 faceoffs and picked up six ground balls, while Chris Hipps and Lobb recorded two caused turnovers apiece.
April 29, 2016 | Guterding’s Overtime Goal Sends Duke Past Notre Dame
Justin Guterding scored 40 seconds into overtime to complete Duke’s 10-9 comeback victory over fourth-ranked Notre Dame in the ACC Semifinal. The Blue Devils, ranked 13th, outscored the Irish 6-1 in the final 20 minutes to come away with the win.
Duke trailed 8-4 with less than four minutes remaining in the fourth quarter.
Cohan, who finished with three goals and two assists on the night, made it a one-goal game 1:01 into the final period. Notre Dame answered with a tally from Ryder Garnsey just 44 seconds later, but did not score again as Cohan and Myles Jones added goals to tie the game, 9-9 with 7:37 to play.
In overtime, Kyle Rowe won the faceoff and Duke called a timeout. Jones started with the ball and found Guterding for the winner and pushing the Blue Devils into the title game.
April 7, 2018 | Duke Grabs Win No. 10; Stops Notre Dame 8-2
Duke held No. 10 Notre Dame without a goal in the second half and six different Blue Devils scored in an 8-2 win at a sold-out Arlotta Stadium. The two goals allowed by the Blue Devils mark the fewest a Duke team had let in in an ACC game since beating Virginia, 17-2, in 2005.
May 18, 2019 | Philly Bound! Duke Beats Notre Dame in Overtime
Duke and Notre Dame continued to provide memorable postseason matchups last year as
“That was one of the most fun games I’ve ever played in,” said senior Cade Van Raaphorst. “I just had a smile on my face the entire game.”
Joe Stein, having taken 20 faceoffs on the day, came out and popped the ball out to the left wing where Van Raaphorst picked up the ground ball. Head coach John Danowski called a timeout to draw up what, hopefully, would be the final play of the game.
Duke dropped the ball a couple of times and nearly lost it over the head of Joey Manown
Duke fired three more shots before getting one final look with six seconds left. With time winding down to under five on the shot clock, Robertson got the ball in his stick behind the goal, turned the corner, got an opening and fired a left-handed bouncer past the Notre Dame goalie for the win
with one second left on the shot clock.
The bench erupted and ran onto the field as Duke was headed to its 12th NCAA semifinal in program history.

- How does Duke defend Jared Bernhardt?
- It’s the million dollar question. No one has been able to stop Bernhardt this year. Jack Kielty, the ACC Player of the Year, got torched three times on dodges by Bernhardt, who racked up five goals in Maryland’s win over Notre Dame. After his fifth goal, Notre Dame started sliding immediately to Bernhardt and double teaming him and forcing him to give up the ball. It led to him not scoring any more for the rest of the game; but it also led to the Irish defense tiring out by the end of the game and having Maryland midfielders run by them for either skip passes (DeMaio to Wisnauskas for Maryland’s 10th goal) or for goals (Long past the Irish defense on an S dodge for their 11th goal.) The same thing happened when Hopkins slid and doubled Bernhardt as soon as he touched the ball. It worked for a time and slowed Bernhardt down, but by the end the Hopkins defenders had tired out and Maryland made the plays late to come away with the victory. So does Duke go with that strategy, especially when you consider the Blue Devils do not carry a deep short stick defensive midfield unit and sub off their offensive midfielders for defenders on defense routinely? Or do they leave a defender on an island with him? Kenny Brower has been Duke’s #1 cover man, taking assignments against Chris Gray and Pat Kavanagh and Connor Shellenberger of Virginia. The results have been mixed. Shellenberger had a goal and an assist, below his usual output. Kavanagh was held to a goal and an assist in the first matchup against the Irish but had 7 points in the second and ran by defenders on several occasions. Gray had three goals and three assists in the last matchup Duke had against him. However JT Giles-Harris is the better athlete and thus feels like the better fit to go with Bernhardt. Does Giles-Harris’ athleticism give him an edge others have not had? If it does it could be a boon to the Blue Devils. But he again hasn’t been accustomed this year to defending opponents best attackmen. And even the best of the best haven’t stopped Bernhardt (see: Kielty.) However Duke does it, they either have to minimize his impact to however they can, or they need to be able to buckle in late and defend the Terps in the 4th Quarter when those midfielders smell blood.
- The Faceoff Game
- This nearly did decide the game for Notre Dame against Maryland. The Irish won 67% of the draws against the Terps for the game. However through three quarters that number was at 77% and the Irish possessed a +7 possession advantage. They won the first faceoff of the 4th Quarter as well and went up 12-9. From there, Maryland won five of the seven remaining faceoffs, were a +3 in possessions the rest of the way, and outscored Notre Dame 4-1. The Irish’s dominant 2nd Quarter where they outscored Maryland 6-2, was fueled by going eight-of-nine on faceoffs and doubling up the Terps in possessions. When Maryland was on level ground with possessions or held an advantage, Notre Dame had no answers for their offense. So what does Jake Naso have up his sleeve for Saturday? Duke is an elite faceoff team, at 63% in Adjusted FO Percentage. Naso is at 64% for the year and had the edge on every ACC FOGO except for Petey Lasalla of Virginia. Can he get to 70% for the game or even near 80 like ND was at for three quarters? If he does, with the pieces Duke has on offense and Mike Adler doing what Liam Entenmann did last week against Maryland, that would be very tough for Maryland to come back from. However 67% wasn’t enough. And Maryland has generally been able to stabilize things well at the dot this year; the ND game was their first game below 50% at the dot since four games ago against Hopkins, and one of their three worst on the season. They’ve generally hovered between 45-55% and been dominant from there. The presence of Kyle Gallagher and Charles Leonard was a factor; Justin Shockey nor Luke Wierman had an answer as Notre Dame changed it up to equal effect. Naso will take all the draws for Duke. He’ll have the edge; but can he have the same edge when Maryland does change it up? That’ll be a question that will go a long way to deciding the outcome.

NCAA men’s lacrosse: Duke beats Notre Dame to win national championship
BALTIMORE — Once again, an NCAA men’s lacrosse title game between Duke and Notre Dame at M&T Bank Stadium came down to a faceoff. And once again, Duke won the decisive faceoff, the game and the national title.
Until the end, though, Duke’s 11-9 victory over the Fighting Irish before 25,587 on Monday didn’t really resemble the teams’ meeting in the 2010 national title game.
That game ended in sudden-death overtime. The Blue Devils won the opening faceoff and scored seconds into the extra period.
Monday’s game had similar drama in the late stages. But, in the first three quarters, Duke had leads of 3-0, 6-1 and 8-3. Yet the Fighting Irish closed to 10-9 following a goal by freshman Sergio Perkovic with 49 seconds to play.
The ensuing faceoff was between Duke senior Brendan Fowler and Notre Dame senior Liam O’Connor.
Had the Fighting Irish (12-6) gotten the ball, two particularly dangerous options — Perkovic and sophomore Matt Kavanagh — were waiting. Perkovic’s goal in the final minute was his fifth of the second half. Kavanagh’s penchant for clutch plays includes three winning goals in overtime in his career and a goal with 6.5 seconds left to defeat Maryland, 6-5, in an ACC tournament semifinal last month.
Neither got the chance at heroics. Fowler won the faceoff, and the Blue Devils (17-3) scored the clinching goal with 23 seconds remaining. For Duke, it was a second consecutive national title and third in five years.
The question was whether Fowler had committed an infraction before the faceoff. Television replays showed Fowler clearly moved before O’Connor did, and it gave Fowler an advantage. What was unclear: Whether Fowler moved before the referees’ whistle. If so, such a violation would have given the ball to the Fighting Irish.
“I didn’t think there was any question” Fowler moved early, Notre Dame Coach Kevin Corrigan said. “But I wasn’t the guy with the whistle.”
Said Duke Coach John Danowski with a smile: “No comment.”
And the clinching goal wasn’t as easy as it may sound. Following a timeout, Duke senior Jordan Wolf inbounded the ball against Notre Dame senior Stephen O’Hara and sophomore Matt Landis, both longstick defenders. O’Hara is a first-team all-American. Landis is one of the best athletes on the team.
Yet Wolf, who had two goals and four assists Monday, is a first-team all-American too. And within seven seconds, Wolf had sped past both defenders and scored in an empty net (the goalie was out of the cage guarding a Duke player). It made up for a shot Wolf took in a similar scenario with 2 minutes 20 seconds to play. Then, Wolf got past his man but his point-blank shot was saved by junior goalie Conor Kelly.
“I missed the one two minutes before,” Wolf said, “so I had to make up for it.”
The game within the game focused on the matchup of Kavanagh and Duke senior Henry Lobb. In their regular season meeting last year, a 13-5 win for Notre Dame, Kavanagh had four goals and an assist. In their regular season meeting this year, Kavanagh was scoreless and the Blue Devils won, 15-7.
Monday’s matchup was close. Kavanagh finished with two goals and an assist but Lobb kept him quiet for long stretches. Lobb practically faceguarded Kavanagh in the hopes Notre Dame would pass the ball elsewhere. It worked.
Late in the second quarter, Notre Dame came steaming toward the Duke goal in a four-on-three break. Kavanagh had eluded Lobb and was screaming for the ball on the right side of the attack. Yet believing that Lobb would be faceguarding Kavanagh, the Notre Dame player with the ball instead passed to junior Conor Doyle on his left. The pass was behind Doyle and went out of bounds as Kavanagh jumped in the air in frustration.
“I wasn’t really getting into the flow of the game,” Kavanagh said. “It’s a credit to them and their defensive scheme.”
Said Lobb: “Matt is a great player, so obviously going into the game he was a big part of our game plan. That was the game plan: make it hard for him to get the ball.”
In the end, the Fighting Irish were left to regret 11 first-half turnovers — “we only played 20 good minutes,” Corrigan said — and the Blue Devils were left to enjoy another national title, a third for Danowski.
“We coach to stay in the moment and be with these kids, and see what stuff we can do and what we can accomplish,” he said. “I guess when you retire you look back and say it was pretty cool. But for now, it’s just staying in the moment.”
Duke women’s lacrosse drops close contest to Notre Dame in ACC Championship quarterfinals
Wednesday afternoon was burning hot, and the intensity in Chapel Hill between Duke and Notre Dame perfectly matched the 90-degree weather.
Duke came into the ACC Championship as the No. 5 seed and faced No. 4-seed Notre Dame in what would become a very close game, though it didn’t start that way at all. The Blue Devils started off on their heels, but once again showed they are a second-half team and staged a comeback on Dorrance Field before falling 17-16 in the final minutes.
“We dug ourselves into a hole in the first half, which was tough,” head coach Kerstin Kimel said. “Offensively, we were slow to get out of the gate…. I’m disappointed that we didn’t come out and establish our own tempo early, we let [Notre Dame] do that and we got on our heels. ”
Despite the first-half hole, the Blue Devils came out of halftime guns blazing, eventually tying the game 16-16 with 4:19 left to play, and largely responsible for the resurgence was junior Maddie Jenner and graduate student Gabby Rosenzweig.
Jenner got back on her draw A-game with the help of her circle and the Blue Devils controlled three draws in the first two minutes of the second half, bringing some momentum back in Duke’s corner.
“In the second half, we had a lot more possessions than [Notre Dame] did and a lot of that was because they did so good on the draw,” Kimel said. “It sometimes takes [Jenner] a little bit to get to know her opponent, but usually she figures it out. She’s able to win it for herself or she’s able to put it someplace the circle girls can anticipate and get to the ball first.”
With Jenner already on fire in the circle, she brought that energy down to the cage and scored three goals in the second half to go along with Rosenzweig’s two assists, putting Duke in a position to win. But Notre Dame’s Maddie Howe rifled a ball into the net with a little over two minutes left in the game, sealing the victory for the Fighting Irish despite the Blue Devils managing to outscore them in the second half.
While the ending was close, the Blue Devils started the game down 3-0 within the first five minutes due to Notre Dame’s relentless offense and its ability to win more draw controls than Jenner typically gave up in the circle. Duke seemed a bit scrambled overall, struggling with ground balls and picking up a shot clock violation on the offensive end.
Beyond the shot clock violations, the Blue Devils spent a significant portion of the first half playing man-down. Freshman Katie DeSimone picked up a yellow in transition and while the Blue Devils were trying to get organized after a shot by the Fighting Irish, they picked up a green card. Later in the first half, Duke’s Katie Cosgrove sat in the box with a yellow and redshirt sophomore Eva Greco received a green card, all while Notre Dame only received one yellow card during the entirety of the first half.
“What it did for Notre Dame was that it gave them a lot of momentum, because they were man-up so frequently in the first half,” Kimel said. “They’re a very good off-ball team and they were able to score off that a few times. I also think that any game with many cards shifts the momentum of either team.”
In addition to the number of cards Duke received, it also played three different goalies in the game. Junior Sophia LeRose started in goal like normal, but 10 minutes into the game backup goalie Chase Henriquez stepped in. But that was not the end of the goalie changes, and at the end of the first half, sophomore Stephanie Zempolich, who’s only played in three games this season, came in for the Blue Devils.
“We have pretty good depth there. Looking at our goalies, they all do things well. [LeRose] is definitely our most active goalie, she’s done a really good job. She’s third in the ACC in save percentage, so not having her in was a little bit hard,” Kimel said. “I felt like [Henriquez] was having a hard time with some of the quick releases of Notre Dame and [Zempolich] at times can be quicker. She had some nice saves in the second half in particular.”

Duke Blue Devils Men’s Lacrosse Team represents Duke University in the National Collegiate Sports Association (NCAA) Division of Men’s Lacrosse. Duke currently serves as a member of the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) and plays his home games at Koskinen Stadium in Durham, North Carolina.The Duke’s main rivalry is his nemesis in sports, North Carolina.
Duke’s first lacrosse game took place on April 9, 1938, when the Blue Devils went to meet their closest rivals, North Carolina, which had just formed the team a year earlier. The Duke won this competition 2–1. The first home game came a week later when they hosted the Syracuse defeating the Blue Devil, 17-5.Duke finished the season 2-5, with his second win also over North Carolina, this time in Durham. The following season, the Blue Devils scored 7-1 points and secured the Dixie Lacrosse League championship.
Ray Brown became Duke’s first All-American Lacrosse in 1940 and was honored the following year. In 1946, Duke opened the season with an upset over Maryland’s national authority at 12–4 College Park. Despite the season ending 2-3, the Blue Devils were awarded the Southern Lacrosse Association Championship.
Team 1951 is often considered one of the most successful Duke teams prior to the NCAA. Blue Devils defeated conference rival Washington and Lee, 26-8. They also won victories against the strongest players, beating the Navy, 17-6, and Johns Hopkins, 9-7. The only loss by one goal came against Virginia. Duke finished the season 6-1.
The newly formed Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) sanctioned lacrosse in 1954 and Duke won his first league title since the publication of the 7-1-1 season.However, starting next year, the Blue Devils entered a twelve-year recession when they set a combined record of 17–67 with no winning seasons. In 1967, Roy Skinner and Bruce Corrie took over as head coaches and immediately changed the fate of the team, setting a 7-4 record this season and finishing second in the ACC. In 1971, Corrie became the sole coach after Skinner’s departure.
Mike Pressler was hired as head coach in 1991, and Duke made his first NCAA appearance the following season.In 1994, the Blue Devils announced their first tournament win, which was also their first victory over Maryland in Durham since 1954. They then lost 12-11 to Syracuse in the quarterfinals. Duke won his first ACC tournament the following year, and in the process became the first seeded number four to do so. Two years later, they made it to the Final Four. Duke won successive ACC tournaments in 2001 and 2002 and made it to the 2005 NCAA final before losing 9-8 to Johns Hopkins.The 2006 season was cut short when several Duke players were falsely accused of rape. As a result of the incident, Duke forced Pressler to step down as head coach, and the NCAA granted players an extra season.
John Danovski replaced Pressler, and in his first season in 2007, he led the Blue Devil to the ACC Championship and returned to the NCAA title match. Duke lost again to Johns Hopkins with one goal, 12-11. In 2010, Duke returned to the final where he beat Notre Dame 6-5 in overtime to win his first NCAA championship.
In the 2013 season, Duke defeated Syracuse 16–10 to win his second NCAA Lacrosse Championship.
In the 2014 season, Duke defeated Notre Dame 11–9 to win his third NCAA Lacrosse Championship.

Cathedral of Paris Solidarity – Vedomosti
The gloomy prophecy of Victor Hugo from the preface of Notre Dame Cathedral (“The Cathedral itself, perhaps, will soon disappear from the face of the earth”), fortunately, did not come true.A monument to the French medieval Gothic (construction began in the 12th century), one of the symbols of Paris and European culture, Notre Dame de Paris survived a 15-hour fire, having lost its spire and roof. But the fire spared many masterpieces, including most of the stained-glass windows, the organ damaged by the fire must be restored, some of the world-class relics, by coincidence, were taken out of the cathedral shortly before the fire. In total, according to preliminary estimates, from 5 to 10% of interior decoration items were lost, writes Figaro.However, the scale of what happened should not be underestimated: it will take years of painstaking restoration work.
The reaction to the fire (fortunately, there were no human casualties) vividly reflected the state of mind in many countries of the world. The tears of Parisians and tourists, who perceived the fire as a personal tragedy, and the tonality of most of the responses on social networks have demonstrated that disasters of this kind can awaken in people a sense of unity in the face of a common misfortune, a sense of vulnerability of objects of world cultural heritage so dear to the general and private history.Even inveterate anti-Westerners in Russia grieved over the possible loss and, with rare exceptions, did not stoop to outright gloating.
Against the background of the scale of the incident, the moderate reaction of the French is indicative. The French media, which are not distinguished by their love for civil servants, do not demand to immediately find and punish the perpetrators of the fire (its causes have yet to be established) or firefighters, whose actions were initially perceived by many as sluggishness. The fire was fought with the use of modern technology: drones with thermal sensors that detected combustion centers, a reconnaissance robot.It turned out to be impossible to extinguish the fire with the use of firefighting forces due to the risk of damaging the stone walls.
The speed of collection of donations for the restoration of Notre Dame testifies to the place occupied by the cathedral in the hearts of people from all over the world. Fundraising for the restoration began Tuesday morning, shortly after the fire was extinguished. And by Tuesday evening, more than 700 million euros had been collected, among the donors were the largest French companies, city and regional budgets.A significant flow of private donations can also be expected: according to a survey on the Figaro website, 77% of the newspaper’s readers are ready to transfer funds. Foreign donors and volunteers are unlikely to remain on the sidelines. Humanity has learned to restore monuments damaged by fire, natural disasters and wars (the Venetian theater La Fenice, the Windsor Palace, the Cathedral in Reims, the ensembles of Dresden and Cologne). The restoration of Notre Dame will be difficult and long, but rumors about the death of old Europe and its values were again exaggerated.90,000 2010 NCAA Division I Men’s Lacrosse Championship – 2010 NCAA Division I Men’s Lacrosse Championship
The 2010 NCAA NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Championship was the 40th annual knockout tournament defining the National Student Athletic Association’s (NCAA) National College Division I Lacrosse Championship. Sixteen teams were selected for the tournament based on their results in the regular season, and some were selected for the conference tournament.The championship match took place on May 31st, Memorial Day, between Duke Blue Devils and Notre Dame Fighting Irish, with the latter first appearing in the NCAA Finals. The Duke won in overtime, 6–5, and won his first men’s lacrosse championship in high school history.
Baltimore, Maryland was selected to host the final and semi-finals, which were held at M&T Bank Stadium, home from the Baltimore Ravens of the National Football League.The tournament was co-hosted by the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, Johns Hopkins University, Loyola University of Maryland and Towson University. The quarterfinals were held at Stony Brook University in Stony Brook, New York, and Princeton University in Princeton, New Jersey.
Baltimore competed with Boston to host the event; Denver; Columbus, Ohio; and East Rutherford, NJ. Baltimore has promoted its rich lacrosse heritage and M&T Bank Stadium’s proximity to a wide range of hotels, restaurants and shopping malls.
Teams of champions from six conferences were automatically promoted to tournaments. Five of these were based on the results of the conference tournaments. The Eastern College Athletic Conferences (EHC) did not host the conference tournament and provided its automatic regular season qualifier to the Denver champions. The conference tournament champions that automatically qualified were: Army of the Patriot League, Delaware of the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA), Mount St Mary’s of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC), Princeton of the Ivy League, and Stony Brook of America’s East Conference …
The selection committee has given the other ten tournament teams a free spot. All four Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) teams received joint applications for the fourth consecutive year: Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina and Duke. The Greater East Conference occupied two bunks: Syracuse and Notre Dame. Also selected were Ivy League runners-up Cornell, independent John Hopkins, Loyola from ECAC and Hofstra from CAA.
Notable teams that were thought to be “on the bubble” for selection but were not selected included Georgetown and Villanova from the Greater East, Yale and Brown from the Ivy League, and Drexel and UMass from the CAA. Some at-Large teams, such as Notre Dame and Johns Hopkins, were considered dubious by some analysts over Georgetown, who missed the tournament for the third straight season.

The biggest surprise of the first round was the double overtime rollover of Army # 2 in Syracuse at the Carrier Dome.Some analysts have called this one of the greatest disappointments in tournament history. It was the Army’s first tournament win since 1993 and only Syracuse’s second home playoff defeat since the tournament was founded; the other was in the 1991 semi-finals.
Notre Dame lost a second 7-5 to No. 3 Maryland after ousting No. 6 Princeton in the first round. The Irish made it to the semi-finals for only the second time in school history. Their only other appearance was in 2001.Duke fled, beating contender North Carolina 17-9 after a 6-goal dash in the second half. This is the Blue Devils’ fourth consecutive semi-final appearance and the NCAA’s third quarter-final win over North Carolina in the past four years. Cornell quickly put an end to the Army’s hopes of yet another nuisance, moving forward 4–0 and ultimately winning 14–5. With the victory, Big Red advanced to the Final Four for the second straight year.
Notre Dame vs Cornell
In the first semi-final, Notre Dame again used their rear naked choke under goalkeeper Scott Rogers to defeat their third-seeded No. 7 opponent Cornell.The Irishman was leading 6-3 at half-time, but two straight goals in the third quarter brought Cornell out to two at 7-5. However, it was as close to how Big Red could have come as the Irish ended up in turmoil and won 12-7. The win marked the first time a non-seeded team had advanced to the championship match since UMass in 2006. This also marked the first time in high school history that Notre Dame had qualified for a title match.
Duke v. Virginia
In the second semi-final, No. 5 Duke beat No. 1 Virginia.Leading 7-5 at half-time, Virginia scored first in the second half, going 8-5 ahead, but Duke responded with a seven-goal blitz, making the Blues’ 12-8 score early in the fourth quarter. However, Virginia will not play calmly, as the Cavaliers drew with a 13th score, leaving just over a minute before the game. With 12 seconds left, Duke scored the familiar combination of Ned Crotty and Max Quinzani to send Duke to his third championship game in six years.
Notre Dame vs Duke
The championship featured two schools that had never won a national title before, for the first time since 1973.This ensured that the first division lacrosse champion would be crowned, which has not happened since Princeton in 1992. The game turned out to be one of the tightest competitions in the championship, albeit the lowest. No team has ever led more than one goal throughout the entire competition. After a 3–2 gap between the halves, Notre Dame took the lead for the first time since the first minute of the game at the start of the fourth quarter. However, a few minutes later, Duke drew and had a chance to win in the last seconds of the game, but the star defense of Notre Dame and the well-timed saves of the tournament MVP Scott Rogers sent the game into overtime.The slow pace of regulation did not escalate into extra time as Sophomore Duke CJ Costabile, a long-club midfielder, cleanly won the first faceoff and rushed straight down to score just 5 seconds before the extra period began. This goal set the record for fastest completion of overtime in NCAA championship history and earned Duke the first national title in school history.
Honors after the tournament
Following the championship, Duke striker Ned Crotty was honored with the Tewaaraton Trophy as the Most Outstanding First Division Male Lacrosse Player.The NCAA announced the All-Tournament team after the championship. Scott Rogers, goalkeeper of the runner-up Notre Dame, was named the tournament’s most outstanding player, the first time since 1996 a player from the losing team has won the award.
