Terps Move to 3-0 Defeating Duke 11-10 In Overtime Thriller at Face Off Classic

The seventh-ranked University of Maryland men’s lacrosse team, possessed the ball for just seconds of overtime, but that was all it needed to pull out an 11-10 win over No. 9 Duke at the Konica Minolta Face-Off Classic at M&T Bank Stadium. Grant Catalino scored the winner 3 minutes into Overtime following an incredible play by Bryn Holmes. Duke’s Will Mckee beat goalie Brian Phipps to a loose ball and virtually had an open net for the game winner. But Bryn Holmes knocked McKee on his butt forcing a weak shot, Brian farrell scooped up the loose ball, sprinted downfield passe to roommate Dean Hart who found Catalino for the game winner. Catalino scored a career high 5 goals. Ryan young added 2 goals with 2 assists and Will Yeatman also scored twice. The Terps were coasting with a 10-7 lead with 4 minutes left before Duke rallied for 3 goals –the last with only 13 seconds left in regulation. I had the honor of watching the end of the game with Baltimore City Police Commissioner Frederick Bealefeld III, a former lacrosse player and huge lacrosse fan. After Duke tied the game at 10, the Commissioner boldly predicted a Terrapin overtime win with Catalino scoring the winner. Hats off to Commissioner Bealefeld!!! He is a great supporter of the Parks and People Lacrosse League, a great program that is bring lacrosse to many inner city Baltimore areas. The Commisioner will soon be a guest on Terp Talk and I greatly look forward to it. The Terps won this game despite losing the face-off battle 17-8 and the groundball war 42-33. Brian Phipps nabbed 15 saves and hat one superb hit on a Duke attackman. Post game audio Press Conference Cottle Post Duke Brian Phipps on last play Phipps Duke
