The Game Story:
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- The No. 13/No. 4 seed Duke Blue Devils handed the No. 5/No. 1 seed Maryland Terrapins, a 7-6 loss in the first ACC men's lacrosse semifinal on Friday night at Klockner Stadium.

The Blue Devils (8-5 overall) jumped out to a 4-1 lead after the first quarter and held on as Maryland mounted a comeback late in the game. All-ACC midfielder Kevin Cassese scored two of his three goals in the first quarter. All-ACC attacker Matt Rewkowski also netted three for the Blue Devils.

Maryland (7-3 overall) was led by senior All-ACC midfielder Ryan Moran who scored three goals and had a chance to tie the game as he was stopped by Duke goalie A.J. Kincel as time expired after the Terps made a full-field rush in the final seconds.

Kincel was stellar against Maryland again, as he made 12 saves.

The Blue Devils advance to the ACC Championship game this Sunday as they will face the winner of the Virginia/North Carolina game at 3 p.m.
