#4 UNC overcame an early 7-3 deficit and used a 5-1 run in the fourth quarter to secure a 15-14 win over #6 Duke in front of the largest Fetzer FIeld crowd since 1983. For UNC it was the first time since 2003 the Tar Heels have beaten Duke in Chapel Hill.
UNC moves to 10-1 overall and 1-0 in the ACC with games against Virginia, Syracuse and Notre Dame coming over the next three weeks. Since the ACC only has five men's lacrosse teams, the league tournament will take the top four. UNC's win over Duke gave the Heels a tiebreaker over the Blue Devils who fell to 0-2 in the ACC.
