The third-seeded Blue Devils (16-4) and second-seeded Tar Heels (17-3) will play in the national semifinals of the NCAA women’s lacrosse tournament at 5 pm Friday in PPL Park in Chester, Pa., a Philadelphia suburb.

The victory sends the Blue Devils to the final weekend of the season for the first time since 2011, a time that predates any of the current players on the roster.
