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.
