February 21, 2010|By From Sun staff reports

Zach Brenneman had three goals to lead the No. 8 Notre Dame men's lacrosse team to an 11-7 upset of top-ranked Duke on Saturday at the Blue Devils' Koskinen Stadium.

The Fighting Irish (1-0) outscored the Blue Devils (1-1) 5-2 in the second half and never trailed in the game.

"We literally could not run past their guys," Duke coach John Danowski said. "Individually, their scheme was very different from what we saw last week. Today we needed to run past people, and today I thought Notre Dame was just better than us."

Max Quinzani led Duke with three goals.

Notre Dame built a 6-2 lead in the second period, but Duke rallied for three goals in a 30-second span to slice the Irish's lead to one with 4:14 left in the first half. The scores came from Justin Turri (4:44), Zach Howell (4:34) and Parker McKee (4:14).

The Irish scored three of the five goals in the third period to take a 9-7 lead into the fourth.

No. 7 Maryland 12, Bellarmine 7: Grant Catalino had two goals and four assists to lead the Terps (1-0) past the Knights (2-1) in Louisville, Ky.

It was Maryland's 17th straight season-opening victory.

The Terps scored seven of the first 10 goals, but Bellarmine's Chase Williams scored consecutive goals to cut Maryland's lead to 7-5 with 2:50 remaining in the third quarter.

Maryland then scored five straight goals to extend their advantage to 12-5 with 3:34 left in the game.

No. 4 North Carolina 17, Lehigh 5: Jimmy Dunster had three goals and four assists to power the host Tar Heels (3-0) past the Mountain Hawks (1-1).

Billy Bitter, Gavin Petracca and Thomas Wood combined to produce 14 of North Carolina's 28 points.

The Tar Heels led 9-4 at the half before going on a 5-0 run in the third quarter.

No. 3 Virginia 11, Drexel 8: Steele Stanwick (Loyola) had a hat trick to lead the Cavaliers (1-0) past the host Dragons (0-1).

Dom Starsia earned his 200th victory at Virginia, becoming the second coach in the history of the sport to win that many at one school.

Salisbury 14, Lynchburg 9: Mike Winter (five goals) and Matt Cannone (four) helped the host Sea Gulls (2-0) beat the Hornets for the sixth straight time and the 16th time in 17 meetings.
