The TERPS held on last night, prevailing 3-2 over Wake and will take on Virginia in the ACC Championship game tomorrow at noon.
The TERPS jumped out to a 1-0 lead courtesy of an OD steal and great pass to Nicole Muracco in front of the goal. With about 10 minutes left, Emma Thomas converted a penalty corner to give the TERPS a 2-0 lead. First half was choppy for both teams but the TERPS had the edge going into halftime.
The second half opened just about the same. Lot of play in between the 25's with a few shots and one or two corners. With 25 minutes left though, the TERPS broke through. Bri stole a pass at half field and sprinted down the far sideline and crossed the ball to Ameliet Rischen who sent it in for the TERPS goal and a 3-0 lead. But just about 30 seconds after, Wake scored. TERPS 3-1.
After a TERP timeout, Maryland got control and took the next 5 shots but put nothing on the board. Wake then had the next 6 opportunities with nothing to show until they scored on a rebounded penalty corner shot at about the 27 minute mark. The TERPS get the goaltending nod with Ali G's 6 saves, 4 in the second half.
