UNC Men’s Lacrosse Wins ACC Championship
The Tar Heels took down the No. 3 seed Duke Blue Devils in the semifinals 18-17 with a strong first half. The defense held on in the second for revenge of last year’s ACC championship.
UVA hadn’t won a conference game all season until the ACC semifinals. The Cavaliers defeated No. 1 seed Maryland handily in the semis, 13-6.
Senior Marcus Holman was named tournament MVP—he had four goals and two assists in the semifinal win and five assists in the title game; senior Davey Emala had a career-high four-goals, leading the way for the Tar Heels; and freshman Kieran Burke had 17 saves in goal.
The win marks Carolina’s ninth straight as the Tar Heels improved to 12-3. UNC will likely get the top seed in the NCAA tournament when the field is announced Sunday, May 5. The first round takes place May 11 and 12 .Did you see something wrong in this story, or something missing? Let us know
