The No. 20 Duke men's lacrosse team jumped all over host No. 4 North Carolina early and often Wednesday night. A strong first-half performance and finish led the Blue Devils to an 11-8 upset of the rival Tar Heels.
Jordan Wolf finished with a game-high three goals for Duke, which led 8-4 at halftime. A third-quarter lull let Carolina back in as the Heels went on a 3-0 run to cut the gap to 8-7. But Duke outscored Carolina 3-1 in the fourth, with Wolf adding the final goal with 1:49 left.
