No. 10 Maryland Knocks off No. 6 Virginia

Virginia tacked on a late extra-man goal by Bocklett to make it a 12-7 final.

Maryland's defensive effort was spotlighted by 12 saves from Amato. Senior long pole Brian Farrell was solid with four groundballs, while the close defense unit of seniors Ryder Bohlander, Brett Schmidt and Max Schmidt held the Virginia attackmen Stanwick, Bocklett and Nick O'Reilly to just three goals, with two of those coming late in the fourth quarter.

Another major contributor for the Terps was sophomoe face-off man Curtis Holmes, who won 14 of 22 face-offs and had a team-leading five groundballs.

Maryland returns to action on Friday night in Annapolis, Md., vs. Navy. The Terps and the Midshipmen are slated for a 7:00 p.m. start at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium.
