Syracuse has won the NCAA men’s lacrosse title with a 13-10 victory over Johns Hopkins. This is the record tenth time the Orangemen have won the national championship. Hopkins was also going for a tenth crown.
Hopkins took an early lead (4-1, if I recall correctly), but even at that stage Syracuse had most of the possession and most of the shots. Great goalkeeping by Michael Gvozden masked Syracuse’s superiority in the first half and Paul Rabil (six goals) kept Hopkins within strking range during the second. But Syracuse looked like the winner throughout the second half.
A crowd of just under 49,000 saw the match in Foxborough, Mass. This is a record for the event.
