2012 Men's Lacrosse Tournament: Maryland Advances To NCAA Title Game Following 16-10 Win Over Duke

For the second straight year, Maryland will head to the NCAA men's lacrosse championship game. Led by senior Drew Snider, who tied a career-high four goals, the Terrapins defeated Duke on Saturday, 16-10 at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass. This marks the 11th time in school history it will appear in the title game.

The ACC foes were neck and neck for most of the afternoon, as Maryland led just 10-8 at the onset of the fourth quarter. But then, it rattled off six consecutive goals to grab a commanding eight-goal lead that put the game out of reach.

Junior Owen Blye also chipped in for Maryland with three goals of his own. Sophomore goalie Niko Amato finished with 10 saves.

On Monday night, Maryland will face in-state rival Loyola, which beat Notre Dame by a final score of 7-5 during the semifinals on Saturday. Last season, the Terps lost to Virginia, 9-7 in the national championship game.
