2011 NCAA Lacrosse Championship, Maryland Vs. Virginia: Terps Lead 1-0 After One Quarter

It's a typical defensive slugfest in the NCAA Men's Lacrosse Tournament Championship game in Baltimore. Unseeded Maryland leads Virginia, 1-0, after one quarter in a game that has followed a similar script to all the ones Maryland has played thus far.

The Terps got on the board first after a typically long possession. Grant Catalino snuck into his favorite spot on the right-hand wing, took a pass from Jon Haus and scored his 30th of the season two and a half minutes into the contest. It looked like Virginia had tied it up with 9:37 remaining, but the Cavaliers were called for goalie interference after Niko Amato made a spectacular save on Rob Emery. 

The Terps had their chances to push ahead by even more, but it wasn't to be. Luckily, Amato remained sharp. Amato was up to the task with 5:25 left, stoning Mark Cockerton on the doorstep on a low shot. Then, he stopped Emery again, saving a jump shot right in front of the goal. On the other hand, the Terps have nine shots and only one goal to show for it.
