The Maryland Woman’s Lacrosse rallied today from a 6-0 hole to beat the defending Champion Northwestern Wildcats. Not only is Northwestern the defending champs, but they have won 5 straight National Championships coming into today’s match up.
Caitlyn McFadden scored the 12th goal of the day for the Terps with just over 5 minutes left. The 12-10 lead proved to be enough. Northwestern got it to 12-11 with just under 3 minutes left, but an insurance goal by Sarah Mollison a minute later sealed the deal for the Terps.
For Maryland this is their 11th National Championship. Congratulations to the Lady Terps, this is truly an achevievement to be proud of. It is also another National Championship for the University of Maryland. That certainly won’t hurt our Sears Cup Standing.
