The University of Pennsylvania men’s lacrosse team scored the final four goals in Saturday’s game with No. 10/10 Duke and pulled away for a 14-11 win over the Blue Devils at the Matthews Sportsplex Stadium.

Penn allowed Duke to score in the final seconds of the third quarter, and the Blue Devils then scored two goals in the first 2:30 of the fourth quarter to take their first lead of the day at 11-10. However, James Shipley — playing in front of a hometown crowd in just his second collegiate game — scored his first collegiate goal with 7;14 left, and that jump-started the Quakers as Ben Bedard, Dylan Gergar and Sean Lulley all found the back of the net after that for the win.

With All-American and Tewaaraton candidate Sam Handley sitting out with an upper-body injury, Lulley had an outstanding day with six goals and an assist while Bedard and senior Adam Goldner (Malvern Prep) both scored twice. Kyle Gallagher won 17 of 29 faceoffs. At the other end, Patrick Burkinshaw had seven saves in gaining his first collegiate win.
