I arrived at the game after Basketball practice with the score tied at 3 and 3 minutes left. Maryland’s goalie made 2 crucial stops in the final seconds to force OT. In the 7 on 7 OT, Maryland dominated early as Jill Witmer hit the post with a shot at the top of the circle. A few minutes later Carolina dented the nets and that was that.
