Maryland Advances To NCAA Semifinals; Loyola, Hopkins Fall Short

May 21, 2018
The Maryland men's lacrosse team advanced to the NCAA Semifinals for the fifth consecutive season, while both Johns Hopkins and Loyola could not overcome higher seeds. 

Here is a wrap-up for the quarterfinals:

Maryland

The top-seeded Terrapins (14-3) beat Cornell, 13-8, at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. Maryland went on a six-goal run during the second half to pull away. The Terps are in the Final Four for seventh time in the last eight years under head coach John Tillman.

Top Performance: Redshirt freshman midfielder Logan Wisnauskas (Boys' Latin) finished with two goals and two assists. He has the most points (47) by a Terrapin freshman since 2001.

Clutch Play: Freshman midfielder Bubba Fairman scored three goals during the decisive run in the third quarter. He also added two assists.

Quote: "I don't think we've really peaked yet. I think we're coming along." -- Fairman

Up Next: The Terps play Duke (15-3) at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass., at 2:30 p.m. May 26.

Johns Hopkins

The fifth-seeded Blue Jays (12-5) fell to fourth-seeded Duke, 14-9, in the NCAA Quarterfinals at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium.

Top Performance: Junior attackman Kyle Marr had two goals and an assist.

Clutch Play: Marr pulled the Blue Jays to within one at 9-8 with 7:11 left in the fourth quarter before the Blue Devils went on a three-goal run to put the game away.

Quote: "I can't emphasize enough how proud I am of this team. Coming off of last year and the drubbing we took at the end, there was a lot of soul-searching, a lot of changes made -- coaches and players -- and we decided we were going to readjust our culture, and clearly we've done that." -- Johns Hopkins head coach Dave Pietramala, whose team lost to Duke, 19-6, last year in the NCAA Tournament

Up Next: Season over.

Loyola

The sixth-seeded Greyhounds (13-4) fell to third-seeded Yale University, 8-5, at Hofstra University. Loyola was held to 12 shots in the second half. Yale advanced to its first Final Four since 1990. 

Top Performance: Junior goalie Jacob Stover (McDonogh) had a career-high 19 saves.

Clutch Play: Junior midfielder P.J. Brown tied the game at 3-3 with 3:30 left in the half, but Loyola could not capitalize on the momentum swing. 

Quote: "Toward the second half when we had to play so much defense, I didn't feel like we were willing and able to get out and run the field and get it to our short sticks who could make a play for us. I think the opportunities were there. You credit Yale. It was a terrific ride. But we were prepared it." -- Loyola head coach Charley Toomey 

Up Next: Season over

Division III

Salisbury

The No. 7 Seagulls (20-3) beat No. 3 Gettysburg, 8-7, in the NCAA Division III Men's Lacrosse National Semifinal. Salisbury is looking to win the program's 13th national championship next week.

Top Performance: Sophomore goalie Brandon Warren finished with eight saves. He also made a key stop from point-blank range with less than 20 seconds left in the game. 

Clutch Play: Sophomore midfielder Emory Wongus scored the game-winning goal with four minutes remaining in the fourth quarter. 

Up Next: Salisbury plays No. 5 Wesleyan (Conn.) at Gillette Stadium at 1 p.m. May 27 in the NCAA Division III Men's Lacrosse National Championship.
