With North Carolina holding a nine-goal lead over Duke early in the third period, Friday night’s second Atlantic Coast Conference Men’s Lacrosse Championship semifinal didn’t appear headed for a dramatic finish. A crowd of 4,567 at Kenan Stadium saw the second-seeded Tar Heels prevail after squandering a 15-6 lead in a span of just over 15 minutes in the second half. The third-seeded Blue Devils reeled off eight unanswered goals during one stretch and stunned the Kenan Stadium crowd by going in front 17-16 on Bill Conners’ score with 6:12 remaining in the game.
