FOXBOROUGH (AP) – Defending NCAA champion Duke scored three times in the fourth quarter to beat Notre Dame 7-5 in the quarterfinals of the men’s lacrosse tournament on Sunday.

The fifth-seeded Blue Devils will face Atlantic Coast Conference-rival Maryland in the semifinals Saturday at M&T Bank

Westy Hopkins had three goals for fourth-seeded Fighting Irish (11-3).

Duke and Notre Dame were tied at 4 after three quarters, but Jordan Wolf, Tucker Virtue and Robert Rotantz scored for the Blue Devils in the final period.
