Another exciting Saturday of college lacrosse is in the books. In today’s action we saw Syracuse fail to comeback all the way as Notre Dame took the win at home, Yale get beat on the road by Penn in triple overtime, and North Carolina make a statement win. After today there are just two winless teams left as Bellarmine defeated Mercer. That leaves Binghamton and St. Bonaventure as the only two teams left that have yet to win a game. 

Denver secured a win over Georgetown, giving Bill Tierney his 400th career win. Tierney is just the second coach in DI lacrosse to reach 400 wins in their career.

Penn 13, Yale 12

This one was close the entire way and would need three overtimes to decide a winner.
