BALTIMORE, MD – Kyle Keenan had four goals and Jordan Wolf and Deemer Class added hat tricks as Duke moved one step away from back-to-back lacrosse national championships with a 15-12 semifinal win over Denver on Saturday afternoon.

The game was tied at 4-4 in the second quarter when Keenan began a string of four straight scores for the Blue Devils. Wolf added the next three as Duke took an 8-4 edge to the locker room.

In the second half, the Pioneers made a run and got within a single score on one of Wesley Berg’s five goals on the day. In the end, however, the Blue Devils pulled away and they’ll face the winner of Notre Dame and Maryland on Monday for the title.

Jason Benetti and Mark Dixon called the action on WestwoodOne Sports and the NCAA Radio Network.
