It has come down to style now. It’s the speed and athleticism of No. 5 Duke against the defense and overall discipline of unseeded Notre Dame.
The national championship game is set for Monday, and it’s an interesting matchup. As always, a traditional favorite makes it such as Duke (15-4), but Notre Dame (10-6) is the surprise team.
Every year there is a Cinderella team, but that team usually gets knocked off in the quarterfinals, or, at the least, in the semifinals. But the Fighting Irish continue to make their run. Here’s a team that stunned many lacrosse fans by making the 16-team field, and now Notre Dame is in the championship.
Maybe there is something to all this parity talk the past couple of years.
