Army pulled off the weekend's biggest surprise, upsetting defending champion Syracuse 9-8 in double overtime in the first round of the NCAA lacrosse tournament Sunday night.

Army's Devin Lynch scored with 5.7 seconds left in the second overtime to clinch the win and hand Syracuse its second loss all-time at home in an NCAA tournament game.

No. 2 seed Syracuse finished the regular season 13-1 and was coming off back-to-back national lacrosse titles.

Army had not won a tournament game before Sunday since 1993 against Maryland. The Black Knights improved to 4-15 all-time in the NCAA tournament.

Army will play seventh-seeded Cornell in the quarterfinals May 23.

Also advancing to the quarterfinals, No. 1 Virginia will play No. 8 Stony Brook, No. 4 North Carolina will play No. 5 Duke and No. 3 Maryland will play Notre Dame, which upset No. 6 Princeton in the first round.
