2011 NCAA Women's Lacrosse Tournament: Maryland Routs Princeton, 15-6, Advances To Final Four

The Maryland women's lacrosse team had little trouble with Navy in the first round of the NCAA Women's Lacrosse Tournament last weekend, and they had little trouble with Princeton this weekend as well. The top-seeded Terps advanced to the Final Four with an emphatic 15-6 win over Princeton in a quarterfinal match on Saturday.

The Terps actually fell behind 3-1 early, but took control by scoring seven goals in a row in the first half. Kristy Black, Laura Merrifield and Sarah Mollison scored three times in a 2:11 span to turn a 3-1 deficit into a 4-3 lead, and Maryland never trailed after that. The Terps led 8-4 at halftime, then scored six straight times to put the game away in the second half.

Mollison and Katie Schwartzmann had four goals apiece to lead the Terps. Goalie Brittany Dipper made 15 saves to prevent Princeton from mounting much of an offensive attack.

The Terps will next play the winner of No. 4 Florida and No. 5 Duke on May 27 at either 5 or 7:30 p.m.
