Virginia gave Duke everything they could handle in another instant classic within ACC lacrosse play. The game went back and forth all game long seeing both teams hold leads of 2 goals or more, only to see the other team battle back right through into overtime.
Joe Robertson scored 2 goals and had 3 assists on the day including the game winner in overtime, his second game winning OT goal of the season. Brennan O’Neill tallied 3 goals and 2 assists and Mike Sowers went for 3 goals in the Blue Devils win.
Dox Aitken and Charlie Bertrand paced UVA with 3 goals each on the day and Payton Cormier and Matt Moore each put up 2 goals of their own in the Cav’s loss.
Alex Rode and Max Adler each had great days in net for their respective teams. Rode put up 16 saves for UVA in the losing effort and Adler put up 16 of his own and got the W.
Pete LaSalla had a great game for UVA winning 18 of 27 face-offs against Jake Naso who coming into the game was the best face-off guy in the ACC in terms of win percentage. But LaSalla won the day dominating the dot and put up a goal of his own, but alas it wasn’t enough to get Virginia the win.
