North Carolina and Brown, two schools that played in the 2009 NCAA Tournament, traveled the width of the nation Saturday to meet in the first-ever San Francisco Lacrosse Fall Classic at historic Kezar Stadium in Golden Gate Park.

Sophomore midfielder Chris Layne (Malvern Prep) scored twice to help the Tar Heels prevail, 13-5, over the Bears but the biggest winner on the day was BAYS, the Bay Area Youth Sports Foundation.

All proceeds from the event went to charity as a crowd of 4,789 fans attended the event at the former long-time home of the San Francisco 49ers. The 49ers played their game at Kezar from 1946-70.

After long trips to the Bay Area on Friday from the East Coast, both UNC head coach Joe Breschi and Brown head coach Lars Tiffany made liberal use of their benches.

Layne scored his first goal late in the second quarter to make it 4-0.  He scored his second tally in the fourth period, ironically, against freshman goalie Wills Curley, also a Malvern Prep grad. Curley posted three saves.
