Three at a time

  Duke snuck into the final spot in the ACC championship with wins against Marquette and Stony Brook.

While there were many records broken on and off the field last week, the team that most needed to travel through their schedule undefeated did so convincingly.

The No. 6 Blue Devils tackled a two-game road series by collecting wins at Stony Brook and Marquette in the span of three days.

Five Blue Devils completed hat tricks as Duke held then-No. 16 Stony Brook scoreless for the final 14 minutes in a 17-11 win Wednesday. Sophomore midfielder Jack Bruckner and junior attack Case Matheis each tallied six points to lead the scoring.

Senior midfielder Tanner Scott totaled a career-high four points with three goals and an assist to lead a trio of Blue Devils with hat tricks against then-No. 15 Marquette 15-8 on Saturday. Junior midfielder Myles Jones and freshman attack Justin Guterding also netted three goals each.

Duke sophomore defenseman Ian Yanulis was selected this week’s ACC Men’s Lacrosse Defensive Player of the Week.

Duke (10-4) earned the final spot in the 2015 Atlantic Coast Conference Men’s Lacrosse Championship and will play top seed Notre Dame (9-1) in the opening semifinal Friday.
