Maryland, Ohio St. meet in NCAA lacrosse championship

Ohio State responded with wins over Loyola, Maryland and Duke to earn its first semifinal appearance.

That the NCAA Division I men's and women's lacrosse Final Fours are taking place at Gillette Stadium this weekend means that the Patriots head coach has an opportunity to be around the highest level of college competition the sport has to offer. "Getting that quick goal within the first 30 seconds really brought us up". "We've kind of come together and said, 'We can't look at it as if we're in a drought or anything like that", said Muller, who helped lead his team to a narrow 9-8 victory over Denver in the national semifinals on Saturday. Give these guys all the credit. "But they played hard".

O'Neill, a senior midfielder, has 13 goals, three assists and 20 ground ball for Boston College this season. "Our shots were not falling at all", said attacker Kali Hartshorn (two goals, one assist). They face Boston College on Sunday and will be playing for a third national title in four years.

The No. 1 seed Maryland men hoping to join the women's team as the Terps will take on Ohio State Sunday in the Championship game, which was scheduled to start at 1 p.m. It's the first unbeaten season for Maryland since 2001. "Every team in the tournament is good so in practice we focus on ourselves and not Maryland and how we as units are going to play our best". The Terps scored just 10 seconds into the game and racked up five goals in the first 4:29 of the second half, but Boston College kept it from becoming a runaway. Kent tied a record with her 10 points in a title game, and sophomore Sam Apuzzo of West Babylon scored four to finish as the nation's leading scorer with 80.

Although Maryland never trailed, the Terps were pushed by the Eagles, who battled back from an early 5-2 deficit. She's won eight national championships as both a player and a coach. "She stepped up when we needed her and it was unbelievable".

After splitting the first two, the victor of Monday's 1 p.m. ET game at Gillette Stadium will take home the biggest trophy of all.

"I think for both teams, it takes a little pressure off", Tillman said. "I'm still proud of our players to get us here". Caroline Wannen's goal at 12:04 began the Terrapins' closing run.

Maryland's mind-set for Monday's title game against the Buckeyes will not be fragile, junior attack Connor Kelly promised, not after crushing defeats in the national championship game each of the past two seasons.

The tournament final will involve a pair of teams that have generally been two of the strongest and most consistent this season.

Hartshorn put Maryland up 1-0 on a goal just 10 seconds into the game.
