The 1984 NCAA Division I Men's Lacrosse Tournament was the 14th annual Division I NCAA Men's Lacrosse Championship tournament, involving twelve NCAA Division I college men's lacrosse teams.

Tournament Overview[edit]

The championship game was hosted by University of Delaware, and was played in front of 17,253 fans at Delaware Stadium. The game saw the Johns Hopkins University defeat previously unbeaten Syracuse University by the score of 13–10.

The Bluejays snapped Syracuse's 22-game winning streak holding the Orange top offensive guns, Brad Kotz and Tim Nelson, in check. Tim Nelson actually was hurt at the start of the championship contest and did not play for the remainder of the game. Hopkins scored the first six goals of the contest.

Hopkins was led by Hall-of-Fame goaltender Larry Quinn, attackman Brian Wood with three goals, and senior attackman Peter Scott with two goals and three assists. Hopkins compiled a perfect 14-0 mark and won its fifth NCAA title under the direction of first-year head coach Don Zimmerman. The Blue Jays returned to the NCAA Championship game for the eighth straight season. This would turn out to be the last undefeated season for Johns Hopkins until 2005.

Peter Scott, considered one of the best lacrosse players to come out of the Pennsylvania high school system, finished his career with four straight NCAA final appearances, made three All-American teams and is currently among the top 20 John Hopkins Career Points leaders.[2][3][4]
