Victory: Maryland Women's Lacrosse Takes Home a National Title

via insidelacrosse.com

No national title shut-out this year: Maryland's women's lacrosse team beat Northwestern, the reigning dynasty of the sport, today in the NCAA Finals, 13-11. They had to overcome two sizable deficits, including a rather foreboding 6-0 start by the Wildcats, but stormed back and ended up tied at halftime before controlling the second half.

Sarah Mollison, a junior attacker, led the Terps in scoring with four goals. Caitlyn McFadden, probably Maryland's best player and a Tewaaraton Trophy finalist, was quiet on the day, but she wasn't needed; Maryland had a well-balanced attack and used their depth for much of their scoring. Northwestern was dominant for stretches at a time, but often disappeared for stretches just as long. The Terps took advantage.

With the win, Maryland has perhaps relaid the first brick of their dynasty; they dominated the sport for the better part of the '90s, and just knocked off the best team of the 2000s. Don't be surprised to see them run off a few more championships in the coming years.

Well done. The trophy case stays full.
