Allie Murray thought she was never going to play lacrosse again. She had already graduated from Notre Dame in three years and spent the following year working with kids at a community center in South Bend, Ind. As she searched for graduate schools, her mother, Ellen, told her to have low expectations because she only had one year of eligibility. The goalie began preparing as if her playing days were behind her. Her Notre Dame career included 15 starts, a 9.87 goals-allowed average and 104 saves.

Right after halftime, Penn State's Ally Heavens stood next to a Northwestern player. In the pouring rain, Heavens' jersey was soaked. The Northwestern player had changed into a new uniform. "A lot of top-ranked teams, they get a lot of gear. They get a lot of stuff, so I was like,'Damn,' " Heavens said. But the Nittany Lions ended up losing by only 5-4 to the perennial powerhouse. That was why Heavens said she chose to play at Penn State in October of her junior year at Garnet Valley High School.

Since Wednesday, Jarett Baker said he's been congratulated almost everywhere he goes. It comes with the territory when you're a member of the Clearview boys' lacrosse team. The program is a community unto itself. The team is like a fraternity. Generations of players are linked. They come back year after year, helping out at practice, dotting the stands and sidelines at games. It's the kind of support coach Rob Rieck said has led to the consistency of his program. And it's why Baker's role in one of the biggest wins in program history isn't going unnoticed.

As a Philadelphia sports fan, Henry Blynn couldn't help himself. He had to take a moment to look around Lincoln Financial Field and think about the Eagles who played there. The Brown attack and Haverford School grad joked that he considered crawling out of the tunnel Brian Dawkins-style before team practice Friday morning. Blynn is one of more than a dozen local players back home in the Philadelphia area this weekend to compete in the Division I men's lacrosse semifinals and championship.

Maryland's players met their goalie and walked slowly off the field at halftime of their NCAA women's lacrosse semifinal. Syracuse's players ran into the tunnel at Talen Energy Stadium. With Maryland leading by seven goals at the break, it made sense. The Orange had a lot to figure out. Their offense had scored only three goals and the Terrapins converted on all but one of their shots. "I think our girls really came out on fire," Maryland head coach Cathy Reese said. The top-seeded Terrapins (22-0)

WHEN KIARA Brooks and her teammates walk the halls of Strawberry Mansion High in their lacrosse uniforms, other students pepper them with questions. "They'll say, 'What?' or 'What's that?' " said Brooks, 16, a sophomore. "Sometimes they call it corny. " But she and her teammates are resilient. Having begun playing lacrosse in February, they've learned to keep their cool against opponents with much more experience, some of whom have taunted them, calling them "ghetto" or other insults, coach Jazmine Smith said.

North Carolina played keep-away for nearly nine full minutes and it was just barely enough to end Penn State's season in women's lacrosse. With a minute and a half left Friday, the Nittany Lions finally forced a turnover and had a chance to tie the score. But Tar Heels goalie Caylee Waters came up with one final stop to seal the victory. "That's what it takes to make a national championship game," North Carolina coach Jenny Levy said of the save. The third-seeded Tar Heels (19-2)

Each of the last three seasons has ended the same way for Syracuse: a loss to Maryland on Memorial Day weekend. The two teams will meet again on Friday in the NCAA Division I women's lacrosse tournament semifinals, and the stage provides another chance for the Terrapins to end the Orange's season or for Syracuse to finally break through. Top seed Maryland (21-0, 5-0 Big Ten) enters undefeated and in search of its third consecutive national title. Four seed Syracuse (19-5, 5-2 Atlantic Coast)
