Terrapins men's and women's lacrosse teams each seeking NCAA title

The Maryland women's lacrosse team defeated Boston College, 16-13, at Gillette Stadium on Sunday to capture the national title and cap off an undefeated season.

Maryland also lost the title game a year ago, falling to North Carolina in overtime.

Boston College's Kenzie Kent gave it everything she had and tallied a remarkable 10-point performance (five goals, five assists) that tied the national championship game record.

Maryland has now advanced to the national championship game for the third straight year.

The Terps completed an undefeated season for the fifth time in program history and the first time since 2001. Maryland scored four straight goals over the next five minutes and sat on at least a two-goal cushion the rest of the game.

On Sunday, the Terps came out fast against Boston College thanks to freshman midfielder Kali Hartshorn owning the draw and then putting her side on the scoreboard first. Apuzzo, who scored 4 goals today, ends the season as the country's leading goalscorer with 80 goals in 24 games.
