2012 NCAA Men's Lacrosse Tournament: Loyola (Md.) Stifles Maryland, 9-3, Wins First-Ever National Title

The Loyola (Md.) Greyhounds scored seven unanswered goals in the final 40:40 to defeat the Maryland Terrapins, 9-3 to win the school's first-ever NCAA championship in any sport.

The Greyhounds were led in scoring by Eric Lusby, who scored four goals on the afternoon on 12 shots. Chris Layne finished with three assists on the game. Other players that scored for the Greyhounds include Davis Butts, Mike Sawyer, Justin Ward, Pat Byrnes and Phil Dobson.

The theme of the game for the Terrapins would be missed opportunities. John Haus recorded nine shots on the game while Mike Chanenchuk recorded eight shots. Between the two players, the Terrapins scored only one goal, by Chanenchuk. The other players to score for Maryland were Jesse Bernhardt and Kevin Cooper.

The Terrapins could just not manage to solve Greyhound goaltender Jack Runkel in the second half and Maryland goaltender Niko Amato could not stop the Loyola attack.

Virginia Vs. Princeton, NCAA Men's Lacrosse Tournament 2012: Cavaliers Advance In Defensive Struggle

In a game that was one of the lowest scoring in NCAA Men's Lacrosse Tournament history, the Virginia Cavaliers turned in a stellar defensive effort, scratching out a 6-5 win against the Princeton Tigers Sunday afternoon.

Despite Princeton outshooting Virginia 34-25, the Cavs made stops when they needed to, including some key blocked shots in the final seconds. Rob Fortunato made eight saves in net for Virginia, while Princeton goalie Tyler Fiorito made 12.

It appeared as if Virginia was going to run away with the game early, jumping out to a 3-1 lead in the first quarter. Princeton would claw back into the game with some goals and stout defense, as Virginia scored just one goal in the second half of the game. Despite the tough defense, Princeton never tied the score or took the lead all afternoon.

Princeton's Tom Schreiber had a game-high four points on two goals and two assits. His teammate, Jeff Froccaro added two goals of his own. Virginia was also paced by a pair of two-goal scorers, as Chris Bocklet and Colin Briggs had key tallies to propel the Cavs to a victory.

Virginia moves on to the national quarterfinals, where they will play the winner of Sunday's Notre Dame-Yale contest.
