Freshman Mikey Wynne (St. Paul's) turned in a stellar performance in his first college game. The 6-foot attackman from Sykesville scored a game-high six goals to power the No. 2 Notre Dame men's lacrosse team past visiting Georgetown, 14-12, on Saturday.
The game was tied at 11 early in the fourth quarter. Goals by Wynne and Sergio Perkovic eight seconds apart gave the Fighting Irish (1-0) a 13-11 lead with 12:20 left. Reilly O'Connor cut the lead to one for the Hoyas (0-1), but Wynne added the final score with 29 seconds left.
No. 1 Denver 17, No. 3 Duke 13: Maryland transfer Connor Cannizzaro had two goals and an assist during a decisive 6-2 run in the fourth quarter as the Pioneers (1-0) beat the Blue Devils (2-1) in Kennesaw, Ga.
Denver used a dominant performance by freshman Trevor Baptiste in faceoffs (25-for-34) to maintain control of the ball. Cannizzaro finished with three goals and five assists.
Duke, the defending two-time NCAA Division I champion, was led by Myles Jones, Justin Guterding and Chad Cohan with three goals each.
