The No. 1 Maryland Terrapins men’s lacrosse team will play for the National Championship once again. The Terrapins defeated the fifth-seeded Princeton Tigers 13-8 on Saturday night at Rentschler Field in the NCAA semifinal in East Hartford, Connecticut.
Both teams had to deal with a lengthy delay as the first game was interrupted by thunderstorms when the game was at halftime. Maryland and Princeton went back to their respective hotels for two hours.
The Terrapins are just the second team to make it to the title game with an undefeated record. The 2006 Virginia Cavaliers were the previous team to do it.
