Navy scores twice in final 10 seconds to upset Syracuse

With 12 seconds left to play in Saturday's Navy-Syracuse men's lacrosse game, the Orange led Navy 12-11. When the final buzzer sounded, Navy had won 13-12.

It was one of the wildest finishes in lacrosse all season.

After the Midshipmen scored for a tie to push to a potential OT, Navy FOGO Joe Varello won a faceoff against his brother, Syracuse FOGO Danny Varello, with just over 10 seconds to play in the fourth quarter.

Joe raced toward the Syracuse goal, fought through a couple tough checks from Orange defenders, and then launched a ground ball to win the game.

It was truly an incredible goal, and a fitting end to a back-and-forth matchup between two Top 15 squads. 

Just a handful of seconds earlier, trailing by one goal, Navy had forced a turnover and drove the field. The Midshipmen found space in the middle of Syracuse's defense for the equalizer from Jack Ray.

Navy moves to 9-4 on the season, and helps its résumé in pursuit of a potential at-large berth, while Syracuse falls to 7-5.

What a game.
