Merrimack wins the 2018 DII Men's Lacrosse Championship

In a truly dominating performance, Merrimack claimed the 2018 Division II Men's Lacrosse Championship national title by topping Saint Leo 23-6. The win is the program's first-ever national title.

The title game, played at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass., was a wire-to-wire tour de force from the Warriors. Nine different players scored a goal in the win. There was nothing the Warriors couldn't do.

Merrimack fell to Limestone 11-9 in last year's title game, which was the Warriors' first-ever appearance in the title game.
