Yale takes down Duke for program's first national title

Yale holds off Duke, 13-11

After 47 years, Yale has ended the NCAA DI men's lacrosse season as the best team in the country.

The Bulldogs' 17th win of the season ended nearly a half-century of waiting as Yale managed to take down a powerhouse in Duke, topping the Blue Devils 13-11 at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts to win the 2018 NCAA DI Men's Lacrosse Championship.

Matt Gaudet and Jack Tigh combined for seven goals, Ben Reeves added a goal and three assists, and Yale's much-ballyhooed offense looked sharp for the majority of the afternoon. They hopped out to quick 3-0 lead in the first quarter and never trailed, keeping the Blue Devils' multiple rally attempts at bay.

On the other side of the field, Duke had five players score a pair of goals, but Justin Guterding never managed to take the game over in the way Duke needed him to.
