Amato, Chanenchuk Help No. 4 Maryland Edge No. 12 Yale

The game wasn't finished yet though. Yale's Dylan Levings, who won 11 of 17 faceoffs for the game, won the ensuing faceoff, but Amato made his biggest save of the game with just three seconds remaining, denying Yale's Harry Kucharczyk with a kick save to preserve the victory.

Maryland's man-down defense was exemplary in the win, limiting Yale to just one goal on seven extra-man opportunities and that goal was on a 6-on-4 chance to start the second quarter.

Jesse Bernhardt led the Terps with four groundballs and also had one caused turnover to go along with his assist.

Maryland is the No. 1 seed for the ACC tournament and will play No. 4 seed Virginia on Friday, April 26 at North Carolina's Keenan Stadium at 5:00 p.m. The second semifinal will feature No. 2 seed North Carolina taking on No. 3 seed Duke in the nightcap at 7:30 p.m. Both games will be broadcast live on ESPNU.
