#5 UNC Holds off #6 Maryland, 9-6, to Advance

Maryland won the opening draw of the second half, but could not capitalize on the possession. UNC would go on to score back-to-back goals to stretch the lead to 6-3. The Terps would cut the Tar Heel lead to two goals three times in the second half, the last time coming when Cox made it 8-6 with her fourth goal of the day with 12:40 left in the game. Maryland had two offensive chances to get back to within one, but could not find the back of the net. After a Terp turnover in their offensive end, UNC got the ball downfield and Brooke Dieringer scored her third goal of the afternoon with just over six minutes left, helping to seal the Tar Heel victory.

Sophomore goalie Allie Buote finished the game with eight saves, including six in the second half. North Carolina was 3-6 on free-position shots, while the Terps were 0-2. The six goals scored by the Terps was the lowest this season.

North Carolina advances to face the winner of Northwestern and Stanford in the NCAA Quarterfinals.
