MORRISTOWN, N.J. - The drive from St. Augustine to Delbarton is roughly two hours. This, of course, is nothing unusual for the Hermits' lacrosse team - the nomads of South Jersey. Game days for St. Augustine often require more time on a bus than on a field. In fact, most St. Augustine players travel about an hour just to get from their homes to school every day. Sacrifice is a part of St. Augustine lacrosse. The team sacrifices easy wins to play an independent schedule against some of the top programs in the country.

With the cheers of the Maryland locker room in the background, Brown's Dylan Molloy hobbled to the interview room podium. Bears coach Lars Tiffany said the nation's most productive attack played with a broken foot Saturday in the second semifinal game, a 15-14 overtime win for Maryland. Molloy said the decision to play was not made at game time, not for him, at least. "I was going regardless," Molloy said. "Being on the sidelines is the hardest thing ever. " Despite his efforts, top-seeded Maryland continued its winning streak at Lincoln Financial Field, clinching its 16th straight victory and a ticket to the Division I men's lacrosse championship game.

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)

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)

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.

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.

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.

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.
