No overtime needed this week for Harvard, the NCAA.com men’s lacrosse team of the week.
Harvard moved up from No. 12 to No. 7 in this week’s Inside Lacrosse Top 20 after dominating then-No. 4 Duke, 14-9, on Saturday, March 5.
Harvard played four extra periods in its first three games but ended streak with a fury of goal against the Blue Devils. Trailing 5-4 in the second quarter, the Crimson erupted for eight unanswered goals over the next 28 minutes to seal the victory. Harvard is 4-0 for the first time since 2002.
Devin Dwyer and Morgan Cheek totaled six points apiece. Dwyer scored four goals and added two assists to move his point-scoring streak to 37 games and Cheek tallied three goals and three assists.
Robert Shaw earned his fourth-straight win in goal with 10 saves. Jack Breit and Bobby Duvnjak each collected five ground balls in the defensive third, and Keegan Michel went 14-of-24 at the X.
