Duke Beats Notre Dame To Win 1st Lacrosse Title

BALTIMORE (AP) -- Duke won its first NCAA men's lacrosse championship in dramatic fashion, defeating Notre Dame 6-5 Monday on a goal by C.J. Costabile with five seconds gone in sudden-death overtime.

Costabile won the faceoff from Trever Sipperly and sprinted downfield before beating standout goaltender Scott Rodgers with a shot from directly in front of the net.

The Blue Devils immediately rushed onto the field and created a massive pile of players, sticks and helmets while celebrating the fastest goal to start an overtime in NCAA championship history.

Duke (16-4) twice before advanced to the title game -- and lost by one goal both times. This time, however, they walked away with the championship trophy by defeating the unseeded Irish (10-7).
