Duke Roars Back, Runs by Syracuse to Win D1 Championship

The Orange ended its 22:19 scoreless drought ended at the 4:28 mark of the third to go back up 7-6, but Duke responded with seven unanswered for the 13-7 lead with 10:47 to play in the game. The first six of those goals came in a span of 5:17 from the sticks of four different players. Tripucka capped off the run with an unassisted score at the 10:47 mark.

Syracuse was able to pull back within four again off of a pair of JoJo Marasco goals before Wolf and Offit added a combined three more for the Blue Devils in two minutes to ice the victory as the time winded down.

Kyle Turri finished with 10 saves to become just the fifth goalie in Duke history to register 10-plus saves in three NCAA Tournament contests. Dylan Donahue led all Syracuse scorers with four points, while Marasco finished with three (2g, 1a). Dom Lamolinara made 11 saves for the Orange in 60 minutes of action.
