2011 NCAA Lacrosse Tournament: Maryland Women Top Duke, 14-8, Advance To Championship Game

The top-seeded Maryland women's lacrosse team has advanced to the championship game of the 2011 NCAA Women's Lacrosse Tournament, and are on the doorstep of defending their title. The Terps had little trouble in the semifinals, routing No. 5 seeded Duke, 14-8, in a game that wasn't really that close.

The Terps took a 5-2 lead at halftime, then poured it on at the beginning of the second half, scoring six of the first eight goals of the half to take an 11-4 lead with 17:48 remaining in the game. Duke got no closer than five the rest of the way,

Katie Schwarzmann and Sarah Mollison, as usual, led the way, scoring four goals each. They each kept pressure on Duke offensively, firing five and six shots on cage, respectively. Overall, the Terps doubled up the Blue Devils in shots on goal, 24-12.

The Terps will look to defend their 2010 title on Sunday when they square off against the winner of North Carolina and Northwestern at 4 p.m. Sunday. The game will be streamed live on NCAA.com.
