Duke and Notre Dame collect wins in regular season finales
GREENSBORO, N.C. (theACC.com) – Duke senior midfielder Deemer Class and Notre Dame junior goalie Shane Doss earned the final Atlantic Coast Conference weekly men’s lacrosse honors. Class is this week’s Offensive Player of the Week, while Doss is the Defensive Player of the Week.
Class had a game-high six points on five goals and an assist to lead Duke to a 15-8 victory over Boston University in the regular season finale. The five goals pushed his season total to 49, ranking tied for 13th in Duke single-season history and tops among midfielders all-time. The 49 rank sixth in NCAA history among midfielders as he is one shy of becoming the sixth midfielder to reach 50 goals in a season. The five goals marked his ninth hat trick of the season and fourth game with at least five points.
Fighting Irish goalie Doss made 10 saves and allowed only three goals in 51:29 to help Notre Dame to 13-7 win over Army to finish the regular season. The three goals allowed were the second lowest individual total this season. Doss has made 10-or-more saves on seven occasions this season, including each of the last three games.
