SATURDAY LACROSSE

#2 DUKE 19, #3 UVA 9
Max Quinzani scored a career-high seven goals and Duke scored 10 straight goals to close the contest as the second-ranked Blue Devils defeated third-ranked Virginia, 19-9, in front of a record crowd of 8,000 fans at Klockner Stadium on Saturday night in Charlottesville, Va.

The Blue Devils improve to 12-1 overall and 3-0 in the ACC while the Cavaliers fall to 10-2 overall and 1-2 in league play. Duke captures the ACC regular season title for the third time in four seasons and earns the top seed in the conference tournament slated for April 25 and 27 in Charlottesville. The Blue Devils will meet fourth-seeded North Carolina at 5:00 p.m. while second-seeded Maryland takes on third-seeded Virginia at 7:30 p.m.

#19 OHIO STATE 14, #8 NORTH CAROLINA 11
No. 19 Ohio State opened the second half with a 9-3 scoring run en route to posting a 14-11 upset victory over No. 8 North Carolina Saturday afternoon at the Boys' Latin School. The victory improved the Buckeyes' record to 8-3 on the season while UNC fell to 7-4. The Tar Heels will try to bounce back when they play Hofstra next Saturday at Kenan Stadium in the regular-season finale at 12 noon.

#15 JOHNS HOPKINS 10, MARYLAND 4
The University of Maryland men's lacrosse team dropped a 10-4 decision at No. 15 Johns Hopkins in front of 8,626 fans at Homewood Field Saturday afternoon.

The first quarter was, as expected, a hard-hitting, physical start to the game. Hopkins jumped out to a 1-0 lead thanks to a running left-hander down the left alley by Paul Rabil. The Blue Jays upped their lead to 2-0 at the 2:47 mark when Steven Boyle dumped a pass to Michael Doneger in front of the crease where he one-timed a shot past Maryland goalie Jason Carter.
