All in Lacrosse

Notre Dame's Sean Rogers took the hero's cape from sophomore attack Torin Varn.
Just eight seconds after no. 7 Notre Dame took a 5-4 lead through Rogers, junior midfielder John Antoniades won the face-off, sent a long, arcing, somewhat dangerous pass to junior midfielder Adrian Sorichetti down the right sideline who hit a cutting Varn 10 yards in front of goal, finishing into the upper-left corner with 3.9 seconds left in the game.

Head coach Seth Tierney's face said it all in the postgame press conference. Moments before, Hofstra and Fairfield had battled for over 70 minutes of lacrosse, which seemed to have it all: scoring runs, crushing hits, ground ball scraps, turnovers, goaltending, defense. But victory belonged to the Stags thanks to Brent Adams' unassisted tally with 2:07 left in the third overtime.
