TOWSON, Md. - Syracuse's bid for its first NCAA championship in any women's team sport was denied on Sunday as the Maryland women's lacrosse program claimed its 11th national crown with a 15-12 victory.
After the top-seeded Terrapins jumped out to a 5-0 lead less than five minutes into the game the No. 2 Orange ralled to get within 5-4, but a 4-0 run by Maryland in the second half broke the game open.
Syracuse ends the season 21-3 with all three losses being to Maryland.
