The Maryland Terrapins, who are the number three ranked team, dominated the Duke Blue Devils in their semifinals matchup, thrashing Duke 14-5.

“To get here and bring Maryland to this weekend is really important to our school, our state, and our alum,” said Maryland’s head coach John Tillman.

The game was never close, which could be seen as an eye opener with Duke ranked ahead of the Terps as the number two seed, but it was no accident that Maryland came into the contest with an undefeated record and retains their unblemished record heading into the final.
