UNC vs Duke Lacrosse


By far one of the biggest lacrosse rivalries is Duke and UNC. They are two of the best teams in the country and whenever they are facing each other you know it’s going to be a great game. This season they have played each other twice, Duke winning the first matchup and UNC coming back and winning the second.


This season, both teams have really shown that they are the best of the best. Duke’s record is 12-2 while UNC’s is 11-2. They have only lost one game to a team other than each other. The goalies for both teams are incredibly talented and are a lot of fun to watch. 


The second game between the two teams was Sunday and it was an action-packed, high scoring game from start to finish. In the first quarter, it was looking like Duke was going to have the win with them getting 4 quick goals while UNC only managed to score 3. UNC came into the second quarter swinging and managed to shut Duke down by scoring 7 goals and not allowing Duke to score any. 


Going into the second half, UNC had a pretty big lead over Duke with the score being 10-4. UNC was playing extremely well with their goalie making some amazing saves and their offense scoring goals with ease. The third quarter was pretty even but went in Duke’s favor with them managing to score 3 goals and only allowing UNC to score 2. In the fourth quarter, it was really looking like Duke could make a comeback with them scoring 5 goals, tying up the score but UNC scored 3 of their own making the final score 15-12.


Both goalies get honorable mentions for this game with UNC making some game saving saves and the Duke goalie keeping his team in the game all the way through. Outstanding performance from both teams, we’re all excited to see what the rest of the season brings.
