The 2013 NCAA Lacrosse Tournament completed its quarterfinal round on Sunday with two more games. The field is now set for the Final Four, which will take place on May 25 in Philadelphia. Here are the results of the final two quarterfinal games:
Denver Pioneers 12, North Carolina Tar Heels 11
North Carolina dominated the game early, taking a 6-0 lead in the first quarter, but Denver made a furious comeback in the second half thanks to Eric Law. Law scored three goals and made the game-winning shot with 14 seconds left in the fourth quarter to complete the rally. Wesley Berg led the Pioneers with four goals.
Denver will face the Syracuse Orange in the semifinals.
Duke Blue Devils 12, Notre Dame Fighting Irish 11
Josh Dionne scored at the end of the third quarter to tie it up, 7-7, in an intense back-and-forth game. Notre Dame would pull ahead in the fourth quarter with goals from Jim Marlett and Conor Doyle, but Duke came back to tie it with 3:17 left before taking the lead for good just one minute later. David Lawson led the Blue Devils with five goals and made the game-winning score at the 2:16 mark. Doyle and Matt Kavanaugh both had hat tricks to lead the Irish.
Duke has advanced to the national semifinals for the seventh year in a row. The Blue Devils will take on Cornell this year.
