College lacrosse: Syracuse is the team of the week

  Syracuse claimed a second straight ACC title after beating Duke on Sunday.

Syracuse claimed a second straight ACC Championship crown Sunday as part of its undefeated week.

The Orange emerged fresh from a three-hour rain delay to score five unanswered goals and finish Duke, 14-8, in the title match.

With Syracuse leading 9-8, the game was halted due to lightning with just over seven minutes to play. Pouring rain drove the teams off the grass and onto a nearby turf field. Following the restart, five different Orange players scored during the run as Ben Williams won four of five faceoffs to control possessions.

Syracuse defeated North Carolina, the tournament’s top seed, 10-7 in Friday’s semifinal. The Orange sprouted a 6-1 lead that the Tar Heels could not clip.

Syracuse is No. 5 in this week’s coaches’ and media polls. The Orange will host Colgate on Saturday, May 7, at the Carrier Dome to close their regular season.
