The U.S. women wasted no time getting on track on Saturday morning against the reigning NCAA champions. The U.S. scored eight first-quarter goals and led 14-2 at halftime in an eventual 20-7 victory over Maryland. Ohlmiller scored four goals for the second straight game and Sam Apuzzo had four assists for the second game in a row as well.

 

Earlier in the day, Maryland knocked off Canada 12-8.

The U.S. men also took on the reigning NCAA champions and rode the hot goaltending of Jack Concannon and a late five-goal spurt to beat Virginia 11-6. Concannon made seven saves in the victory and several USA newcomers made their presence felt, including Jarrod Neumann.

In the nightcap, Ryan Lee scored six goals to help Canada overcome an 8-5 halftime hole against Virginia. Canada knocked off the Cavaliers 16-10.

Saturday evening ended with the enshrinement of nine greats into the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame.

The women’s honorees included former Australia and Maryland star Sarah Forbes, record-setting Maryland coach Cathy Reese, Tewaaraton winning defender Rachael Becker DeCecco and former U.S. World Cup star Kara Ariza Cooke.

The men’s inductees were former Johns Hopkins star Charlie Coker, legendary Nassau CC coach Richard Speckmann, the late Cornell and Team USA goalie Paul Schimoler and former Princeton, MLL and Team USA teammates Matt Striebel and Ryan Boyle.
