Syracuse beats Yale 7-6 in NCAA lacrosse quarters
COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) - Redshirt freshman Dylan Donahue scored with 13 seconds remaining to lift top-seeded Syracuse past Yale 7-6 in the NCAA tournament quarterfinals Saturday.
The Orange (15-3) will face the winner of Sunday's Denver-North Carolina match in next Saturday's semifinals in Philadelphia.
Donahue's goal completed a three-goal rally in the final 3:04 for Syracuse. Yale (12-5) had held the Orange scoreless for more than 43 minutes after surrendering the first four goals of the game.
Yale had a chance to take the lead with 1:21 left, but Syracuse goalie Dominic Lamolinara (nine saves) stuffed Bulldogs midfielder Conrad Oberbeck to secure possession for the Orange.
After a timeout with 55 seconds left, Syracuse midfielder JoJo Marasco patiently waited for an opportunity to develop before finding Donahue a few yards from the goal for the winner.
Syracuse advanced to the semifinals for the first time since 2009.
