May 22, 2011
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Senior Grant Catalino scored with a low-to-high rocket from the right wing with 0:32 left in the first overtime to give the University of Maryland men's lacrosse team a 6-5 victory over No. 1 seed Syracuse in front of 14,122 Sunday afternoon at Gillette Stadium.
The victory gives the Terps a 12-4 overall record this season and sends them to their first Final Four since 2006.
The overtime period started with sophomore Curtis Holmes winning his 11th face-off of the game on a big groundball by senior Dan Burns. But the Terps couldn't get the game-winner on that possession and the Orange had a chance for the win with just under 2:00 to go in OT.
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Duke University sophomore goaltender Dan Wigrizer made 14 saves to anchor the Blue Devils to a 7-5 victory over Notre Dame in the NCAA men's lacrosse quarterfinal at Gillette Stadium. Duke advances to the championship weekend for the fifth straight season and for the seventh time overall.
Duke (14-5) will play unseeded Maryland on May 28 at M&T Bank Stadium. That will be the third meeting between the two squads this season.
Justin Turri led all Blue Devils with two goals, while Christian Walsh and David Lawson both had a goal and an assist. Westy Hopkins led all scorers with three goals.
