The Eagles made their first Final Four appearance this year and were the first unranked team to make the finals since the field expanded to 8 teams.

After the Maryland women's lacrosse team had sealed a 16-13 victory over Boston College in the national championship game on Sunday afternoon, clinching its third title in four years and NCAA-best 13th overall crown, Zoe Stukenberg realized there was nothing left to conquer.

"Jon and Austin collectively, that was maybe kind of the big theme for the game was those two guys hanging in there", Maryland Coach John Tillman said. "I'm assuming we'll see something a little bit new this week".

"It's exciting to have both the men and women in the Final Four", said Rambo. We fought to the end, came up short.

Kent looked stunned when, seated at the postgame press conference, she learned she had been named the tournament's Most Outstanding Player, an accolade rarely given to a player on the losing team.

"They've had a great year", Maryland senior defenseman Tim Muller said. From there, the Terrapins managed to set the tone and control the pace by neutralizing DU's Trevor Baptiste, the best faceoff player in college lacrosse. Collins and Larkin are the first teammates in Patriot League history to surpass the 100-point milestone in the same season.

Apuzzo added a pair of late goals for the Eagles. Collins, O'Donnell, A. O'Sullivan, and Young each chipped in a helper each. They were trailing the Terrapins 5-3; they had committed more turnovers; lost the battle for ground balls; had taken far fewer shots; and each team won the same number of faceoffs, an area Denver typically dominates.

This season, Walker coached the Eagles to a 12-5 regular season record. The other semifinal pits Boston College against Navy at 7:30.

The Eagles notched back-to-back goals, but a three-goal spurt by the Midshipmen gave the Mids their first lead of the game at 4-3.

Larkin enjoyed a fantastic freshman campaign, showing tremendous balance by scoring 54 goals and dishing off 54 assists.

Kate Weeks broke the Terps' run with her second of the match with 24:56 remaining. And all three losses have been by one goal.

But Maryland opened the second half on a 5-0 run - enough to slam the door in most cases, but most teams don't boast Kent. Denver scored four of the next five, tying it on Walker's goal with 10 minutes to go.

Kent, scored her fourth at 17:32 then found sophomore midfielder Dempsey Arsenault three minutes later to put the game within 1-point.

Heacock had a chance to put the game away on the previous possession, but his acrobatic goal was called off due to a crease violation.
