FROM A HISTORICAL perspective, little is unusual about the lacrosse national semifinal matchup between the University of Maryland and Johns Hopkins University tomorrow at Lincoln Financial Field. Since they first met in 1895, the Terps and Blue Jays have played more than 100 times, and the rivalry between the Maryland institutions is widely considered the greatest in collegiate lacrosse. Still, something is unique about this Hopkins/Maryland meeting - part of this weekend' NCAA Division I Lacrosse Final Four - and it could be the most important event for lacrosse in decades.

The last time the Duke women's lacrosse team made a final four in the Philadelphia area, it was 2007, and Taylor Trimble looked on from the Franklin Field stands. Trimble, an eighth grader at the time, was still jamming soccer, squash, and lacrosse into her schedule. Watching the Blue Devils in the NCAA tournament semifinals, even in a 14-13 loss to Virginia, inched her toward the sport. "I just thought it was the coolest thing ever," said Trimble, a Rosemont native who went to Episcopal Academy.

Two years ago Franklin Towne Charter had no girls' lacrosse team. On Wednesday, it had a championship girls' lacrosse team. Sarah Shotwell had five goals and two assists, and the Coyotes defeated Girls High, 14-6, in the Public League Final at Northeast. Melissa O'Donnell and Angela O'Donnell both recorded hat tricks for Franklin Towne, which is in its second year as a program. "They always wanted it," said coach Lindsey Specht. "When they finally got the team, they were committed from the beginning.

Jeremy Huber died a few days before he was to suit up for his first season of college lacrosse. He has been gone for a little more than three months, but the freshman has never left his teammates. He was with them in the postgame prayer after every game this season. Johns Hopkins players always took the field with the number 19 - his intended jersey number - stitched onto their jerseys and painted on their helmets. That same 19 was painted on their home field in front of their bench.

PARENTS OF La Salle High School student-athletes sat on the sidelines of Upper Bartley Field as their boys played in the Catholic League semifinals against Cardinal O'Hara. They spoke candidly and vividly about the Catholic League, the playoffs, other divisions, and even threw in jabs at old rival, St. Joseph's Prep. Listening from afar, one would think they were talking about the heated football, basketball or baseball rivalries built over the years. Nope. Instead, they were talking about lacrosse.

In just a few seconds, the turf field at Neumann University was strewn with gloves, helmets and sticks. The equipment had been thrown into the air by the St. Joseph's Prep lacrosse team. The Hawks had just heard the final buzzer, cementing them as Catholic League champions. "It's been a while since we've done this," junior midfielder Kyle Scheuerle said. "It feels great. " St. Joseph's Prep defeated La Salle, 12-10, on Wednesday for its first title since 2011. The Hawks' largest lead was three goals, and the majority of the game was played with the score either tied or with a one-goal difference.

Gianna Bowe is known for her speed. And, generally, the Clearview attacker is eager to show how she earned the reputation. "I love the pressure," she said. "I make it my goal to be faster than anyone. " In one of her flashier plays during a 20-4 win over-fifth-seeded Eastern on Tuesday afternoon, Bowe gained possession of the ball and outran an entire field of defenders on a straight sprint that lasted almost 60 yards. When she approached the net, she still had enough gas to juke two players - with cuts that would make Barry Sanders proud - standing between her and the goal.

John Roulston felt awesome, and rightfully so. Conestoga's senior goalie made a handful of big saves, including several in a row to help stave off a furious Radnor attack in the closing moments of a 6-5 win Tuesday afternoon in the PIAA District 1 semifinals at West Chester Henderson. "I was just thinking that I've got to focus on the next one," Roulston said. "Just make sure to get the next shot. You've got to just give it your all, every second of every play. " Roulston made 13 saves, with the final four coming on four straight Radnor shots in the final minutes.

Minutes before his Harriton team did battle with Radnor in a District 1 semifinal Tuesday, a hopeful George Dick hoped aloud for one more upset. "I thought there would be one upset tonight, but I was hoping it would be us," he said. "We'll see. " Great Valley had already knocked off top-seeded Conestoga in the first game of a District 1 girls' lacrosse semifinal doubleheader at Haverford High. Thanks to a five-goal effort from Jane Henderson, No. 3 Harriton completed a night of upsets with a 13-11 win over No. 2 Radnor.
