Twelve players scored for the Navy men's lacrosse team as it rolled past visiting Virginia Military Institute, 20-7, on Saturday.
Juniors Sam Jones and Erik Hoffstadt each had a hat trick, and five players recorded their first career goals in Navy's highest-scoring game since 2004.
Navy entered halftime with an 11-1 lead and outshot the Keydets 58-26 for the game.
No. 10 Denver 14, No. 6 Duke 12: Eric Adamson scored five goals to help the Pioneers (1-0) upset the host Blue Devils (0-1).
After trailing 8-5 at halftime, Denver went on a 9-0 run to take a 14-8 lead in the fourth quarter. Duke cut the deficit to two, but bounced a shot off the post with 33 seconds left and the Pioneers recovered the ball to end the comeback.
