Notre Dame Defeats Duke, Irish Crowned National Champions On Memorial Day (LaxFactor Podcast #266)
As you all now know, Notre Dame has been crowned the DI College Lacrosse National Champion after defeating Duke 13-9 on Memorial Day this past weekend. Liam Entenmann was named the games most outstanding player making 18 saves (7 of them in the fourth quarter) as the Irish pulled away from the Blue Devils enroute to winning the programs first national title.
All in all, it was an incredible final after we had perhaps the best semifinal games I can recall seeing back to back on Saturday.
And that does it for season 4, but IT’S NOT GOODBYE. I’ll be back live streaming this Saturday at 10am to recap the entire season, hand out my end of season awards and talk some PLL LACROSSE which I will cover through the summer.

In our final college lacrosse weekend preview episode of the year, we're going to talk the NCAA College Lacrosse Final 4 matchups with Penn State taking on Duke, and Notre Dame taking on Virginia. This will be the third time UVA and ND have faced each other this season with Virginia taking both regular season matchups. Penn State and Duke have not played yet, but they match up well so long as Penn State can keep Brennan O'Neill from carving them up. All American goaltender Jack Fracyon may be able to help the Nittany Lions defense with that. We'll also talk about the DII and DIII matchups between Mercyhurst and Lenoir-Rhyne and Salisbury and Tufts.
