Navy's Joe Varello won the faceoff against his brother Danny of Syracuse with 9 seconds left, raced down the field and scored the game-winner with less than a second left to lift No. 14 Mids to a 13-12 comeback victory over No. 9 Orange in men's lacrosse Saturday.

Visiting Navy scored twice over the final 10 seconds to win and made a compelling case for itself for a postseason berth in the NCAA Division I tournament.


Mids' Jack Ray scored his fourth goal of the game to tie the score at 12-12.

Navy improved to 9-4 and Syracuse fell to 7-5.

"Congratulations to Navy, to come in here, go behind by a couple of goals and then win it like they did, my hat's off to them," Syracuse coach John Desko said. "Joe [Varello] did a great job at the X and was rewarded late with a goal, so that's something he'll probably remember for a long time."
