BALTIMORE — Attackman Kyle Keenan scored four goals, Jordan Wolf had three goals and two assists, and top-seeded Duke defeated No. 5 Denver 15-12 in the NCAA semifinals Saturday.

Deemer Class added three goals for Duke (16-3), which will seek its second straight national championship and third overall Monday against the winner of the second semifinal between Maryland and Notre Dame.

Attackman Wesley Berg scored five goals for Denver (16-3), which has lost all three of its semifinal appearances. Jack Bobzien added three goals for the Pioneers.

Denver scored three straight goals to pull within 11-10 with 13:46 left. The two teams then traded scores before Duke reeled off three goals in a row to hold off the comeback attempt.
