Maryland women’s lacrosse seeks its fourth national championship in six years Sunday afternoon, as the No. 1-seed Terps square off with No. 2-seed Boston College in the national championship game at Homewood Field in Baltimore.
The teams enter this matchup a combined 43-2, and this duo was ranked Nos. 1 and 2 all season (Boston College holding the top spot in the polls). The Eagles eliminated Maryland in last year’s title game, while the Terps won the 2017 national title by beating Boston College in the final. Maryland brings both one of the nation’s top attacks (six Terps have at least 40 goals) and an elite scoring defense, while Boston College is led by reigning Tewaaraton winner Sam Apuzzo, award finalist Dempsey Arsenault and two-sport superstar Kenzie Kent.
The Eagles outlasted North Carolina in a 15-14 thriller, while Maryland turned on the jets in the second semifinal to beat Northwestern. Both teams avenged their only losses of the season in the process.
This is your space to share your thoughts and observations as Maryland chases another title. Be respectful, and go Terps.
