For the second week in a row, the Maryland Terrapins lacrosse team has pulled off an upset in the 2011 NCAA Lacrosse Tournament. They defeated the No. 1 Syracuse Orange on Sunday afternoon, 6-5 in overtime. Maryland led, 5-3, entering the fourth quarter, but Syracuse's Jeremy Thompson and Jovan Miller put two in the net to tie the game. Miller's goal came with just 1:05 left on the clock.
The two teams went to the four-minute sudden death overtime period, and with 32 seconds left Grant Catalino received a Ryan Young pass and threw it into the upper-left corner for the upset victory.
In the opening round of the tournament, the Terrapins had sent North Carolina to defeated. On May 28, they will face the winner of No. 5 Duke-No. 4 Notre Dame. Given the way this round of the tournament has turned out (all the underdogs have won), will Duke be able to complete the mild upset?
