Men’s Lacrosse Team Heads to NCAA Final Four

By Maryland Athletics Staff

The No. 7-seeded Maryland men's lacrosse advanced to the NCAA semifinals for the third time in four years by rallying to defeat No. 2-seeded Duke, 14-11, on Saturday at Hofstra University’s Shuart Stadium.

The Terps (10-5) will make their 29th Final Four appearance, tying Johns Hopkins for the most in history. They now have 21 consecutive seasons with double-digit wins, the longest streak in the nation.

Maryland will play No. 6 seed Virginia at 2:30 p.m. May 25 at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia; the game will be televised on ESPN2. Tickets are available online.

The Terps battled back after falling down 5-1 in the opening quarter. They outscored the Blue Devils 13-6 for the remainder of the game, led by Luke Wierman's dominance from the face-off circle. Daniel Maltz scored the game-winning, go-ahead goal at 5:01 in the fourth quarter. He added another score, his team-leading fourth of the game at 3:03 to put the game away.
