THEY MADE a deal among themselves. The sacrifice would be great. No tweeting. No texting. No cell phones. No sneaking out to see girlfriends. No family dinners. The local players on the Duke lacrosse team were going to treat this Memorial Day weekend like monks in a monastery. The reward was pretty gratifying. After some early tension and a five-goal hole, Duke battled back to win its second NCAA men's lacrosse national championship with a sterling, 16-10 victory over perennial powerhouse Syracuse in front of 28,224 at Lincoln Financial Field.

Everything will be fine, Duke's Brian Dailey thought Monday as he watched Jordan Wolf score a goal, raise his arms, and pump his gloved right fist. The seventh-seeded Blue Devils had stumbled into a 5-0 hole in the NCAA Division I men's lacrosse final, but all doubt seemed to dissipate in the second quarter while Wolf celebrated in the northeast corner of Lincoln Financial Field. A former Lower Merion High star, Wolf finished with four goals, but none more important than the first one, as he steadied Duke and guided his team to its first national title since 2010 in a 16-10 win over top-seeded Syracuse.

It was late Saturday as coach John Danowski and his Duke assistants rolled through game footage in their Center City hotel. They had finished the first three-quarters of the afternoon's NCAA men's lacrosse semifinal win over Cornell when their players entered for a scheduled 11 p.m. team meeting. The coach said he did not do this on purpose, but it gave the coach a chance to place a lasting image in his team's memory. Together they watched Cornell rattle off seven fourth-quarter goals and just fall short of toppling Duke.

Occasionally, the call could be heard coming from the Moorestown sideline: Keep him left. Don't let him go to his right. "They thought I couldn't do it," Jake Dean said. "They were forcing me left all game because they thought I couldn't score with my left hand. But I did it. " Out of a timeout with 3 minutes, 48 seconds left in double overtime, Dean sprinted down the left wing toward Moorestown goalie Dan Willis. And with his left hand - his supposed weak hand - the Shawnee midfielder beat one of the state's top goalies, giving the Renegades a 4-3 win over heavily favored top seed Moorestown in Saturday's South Jersey Group 3 boys' lacrosse final.

James Chayka scored twice and assisted on two others to lead Mercyhurst (18-1). It is the first title for LeMoyne (18-2)

Syracuse men's lacrosse coach John Desko did not talk much about his team's title drought during the season. He knew he did not have to. The Orange return to the final four this weekend for the first time since 2009 when they meet Cornell on Saturday afternoon at Lincoln Financial Field. For the nation's premier program, four years may have felt like an eternity. "The seniors have been very strong leaders all year long with their team on and off the field," Desko said. "Making good decisions, and they use it as an incentive.

Just hours before taking the field Friday, both Maryland and Syracuse waited as North Carolina dismantled traditional powerhouse Northwestern to earn a spot in the NCAA Division I women's lacrosse national championship game. The No. 4-seeded Orange, however, were not as fortunate against the top-seeded and undefeated Terrapins. Maryland defeated Syracuse, 11-10, in the second semifinal at Villanova Stadium, surviving a second-half surge by the Orange. "We're really excited to have the opportunity to compete for a national championship on Sunday," said Maryland coach Cathy Reese.

Even as her team held a commanding, eight-goal lead over Northwestern with about 10 minutes remaining, North Carolina midfielder Abbey Friend never felt a trip to the NCAA Division I women's lacrosse championship game was secure. Given the Wildcats' resumé - seven national titles in eight years - the third-seeded Tar Heels didn't relent in an 11-4 victory on Friday night in a national semifinal at Villanova Stadium. With the win, North Carolina reached its second championship game in program history.

With sticks in their hands, the three Conestoga youth lacrosse teammates sat, nearly a decade ago, in the green seats of Lincoln Financial Field's Section 101. Playing lacrosse in college was not even a thought then, Brian Dailey said. So as Dailey, Tanner Scott, and Jamie Ikeda watched Duke lose to Johns Hopkins in the 2005 NCAA final, they had no idea they were glimpsing into their future. Now Duke teammates, the three will return to the Linc on Saturday afternoon when the Blue Devils face Cornell in a national semifinal at 2:30 p.m. "We definitely dreamed about it," said Ikeda, a freshman defender.

As the North Carolina bus inched its way through traffic on the Blue Route toward Villanova Stadium in the rain late Thursday afternoon, no one thought to ask Margaret Corzel if she knew any shortcuts. That's a pity, because she probably could have helped. This weekend's NCAA Division I women's lacrosse Final Four is a homecoming for several players. But few can make as strong a claim as Corzel, a redshirt sophomore defender for North Carolina. Corzel grew up 10 minutes away in Berwyn, and played in high school at Merion Mercy.
