WEEKEND ACC LACROSSE

#3 VIRGINIA 14, #11 SYRACUSE 13

No. 11 Syracuse dogged No. 3 Virginia during most of the match until the Cavaliers launched an absolute onslaught of offensive power, scoring five of the games last seven goals. But it took an overtime to close the deal. Sophomore midfielder Brian Carroll's second goal of the game with 1:29 remaining in overtime lifted the Wahoos. The Cavaliers improve to 4-0 overall this season, while the eighth-ranked Orange falls to 2-1.

#2 DUKE 15, #4 MARYLAND 7

Zack Greer, Max Quinzani and Brad Ross scored three goals apiece and Sam Payton won 14-of-19 face-offs to lead second-ranked Duke to a 15-7 victory over third-ranked Maryland in front of 4,238 fans at Koskinen Stadium on Saturday night.

The Blue Devils improve to 3-0 overall and 1-0 in ACC play while the Terrapins fall to 2-1 overall and 0-1 in the league. The eight-goal margin is the largest for Duke in a win over Maryland, eclipsing the previous high of seven set in both 1997 (17-10 in ACC Tournament semifinals in Charlottesville, Va.) and 2007 (14-7 in College Park).
