Sure, Maryland is no longer technically an ACC rival. But it makes no difference to the North Carolina women’s lacrosse team.
The No. 2 Tar Heels traveled to College Park this weekend to take on the top-ranked Maryland Terrapins (2-0) in a rematch of the 2013 NCAA championship triple-overtime thriller that brought UNC its first national championship.
The showdown was scheduled for Saturday afternoon, but less than 10 minutes into the game, excessive snowfall led to referees to postpone the game to Sunday afternoon, where it would be restarted and played in its entirety.
Three Maryland players racked up hat tricks for the Terrapins, helping Maryland outlast the Tar Heels (3-1) 13-11.
After Maryland struck first just over three minutes into the game, UNC senior midfielder Brittney Coppa netted two goals in less than a minute to give the Tar Heels and early 2-1 lead.
