NCAA Men’s Lacrosse: Duke Men’s Lacrosse (16-4) Defeats Nortre Dame 6-5 In Overtime To Win First National Championship


Duke won its first NCAA men’s lacrosse championship in dramatic fashion, defeating Notre Dame 6-5 Monday on a goal by C.J. Costabile with five seconds gone in sudden-death overtime.

Costabile won the faceoff from Trever Sipperly and sprinted downfield before beating standout goaltender Scott Rodgers with a shot from directly in front of the net.

The Blue Devils immediately rushed onto the field and created a massive pile of players, sticks and helmets while celebrating the fastest goal to start an overtime in NCAA championship history.
