Notre Dame Men's Lacrosse | May 26, 2014 | Notre Dame Athletics
BALTIMORE - For thirty minutes on Monday, it looked like Duke would run away with its third national championship since 2010. Notre Dame's Fighting Irish, however, made the Blue Devils work for it.
But like 2013, when head coach Jon Danowski's squad needed possession, they turned to Brendan Fowler. Clinging to a one-goal lead in the final minute Fowler, again, proved to be big at the face-off X. The senior from Wantagh, N.Y., outdueled Liam O'Connor and seconds later Tewaaraton finalist Jordan Wolf slammed home an empty-net goal to clinch Duke's second consecutive NCAA championship in men's lacrosse in front of 25,587 at M&T Bank Stadium.
