The 1987 NCAA Division I Men's Lacrosse Tournament was the 17th annual Division I NCAA Men's Lacrosse Championship tournament. Twelve NCAA Division I college men's lacrosse teams met after having played their way through a regular season, and for some, a conference tournament.

Tournament Overview[edit]

The championship game was played at Rutgers Stadium in front of 16,901 fans. The game saw the Johns Hopkins University defeat Cornell University by the score of 11–10. Craig Bubier’s goal with 1:51 left in the game gave Hopkins the victory. The title was the seventh NCAA title overall for the Blue Jays and the third in the prior four years.[1]

This was the seventh NCAA championship for Hopkins since tournament play began in 1971 and the 12th appearance in 16 title matches for the Blue Jays. Hopkins was sparked by goalkeeper Quint Kessenich, while National Hall of Fame member attackman Tim Goldstein tallied two goals and added six assists for Cornell. Cornell had defeated a Syracuse team, 18 to 15 in the semifinals, which featured Paul and Gary Gait, who would go on to capture three straight national title games.[2][3]
