#5 Penn makes Harvard sweat

Harvard needed to win the Ivy League title to lock up a spot in the NCAA tournament, but Penn wasn't exactly a cooperative guest in Cambridge. In a game dominated by great goaltending, Penn scored just enough to take home the title. This transition goal by defender Reid Tudor was the difference in Penn's one-goal victory.

#4 Notre Dame has the luck of the Irish

Army battled the ACC champion irish to a tie with under 30 seconds left, but an unfortunate slip by its best player turned into an easy goal for Notre Dame.

#3 Albany squeaks into the conference title game

The lacrosse world is begging for Albany and the Thompson trio to make it to the NCAA tournament just so we can watch them a few more times. Stony Brook did everything it could to prevent that in the America East semi-final game, but Miles Thompson fed long stick Doug Eich for the game-winner in overtime.

#2 Richmond demands attention

Richmond is only in its first year of NCAA lacrosse, which is exactly what what makes this ordinary looking goal so extraordinary. The goal gave Richmond its first ever Atlantic Sun Conference title and a berth in the NCAA tournament. This is a team to watch out for in the future!

#1 Drexel crushes Hofstra's dreams

In what wound up being a winner take all game, Drexel beat Hofstra to win an NCAA tournament bid. The three-overtime grudge match ended on an outside rocket off the stick of Drexel's Cole Shafer.
