Grant Catalino scored with 32 seconds left in the first overtime Sunday, giving Maryland a 6-5 victory against top-seeded Syracuse before an announced crowd of 14,122 at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Mass. Maryland (12-4) earned a spot in the final four for the first time since 2006 and will face Duke in a national semifinal next Saturday at Gillette Stadium. Denver and Virginia will meet in the other semifinal. Former Lake Brantley standout Jake Bernhardt, a junior midfielder, gave the Terrapins their first lead against the Orange with a goal early in the third quarter. Bernhardt’s brother, Jesse, also played for Maryland in the victory. Jesse also went to Lake Brantley.
