Maryland wins first-ever 3OT game between the UMD and JHU

College lacrosse’s ultimate rivalry, Maryland vs. Johns Hopkins dates all the way back to the 19th century. On Saturday, in the 116th installment of the series, something new happened.

Three. Overtimes.

After rallying two down to tie things at 7-7 before regulation ended, Maryland notched the winning goal 50 seconds into the third overtime when Will Snider buried this marker:

The win hands the Terps the Big Ten regular season title and the No. 1 seed in the conference tournament. 

It was the first time in the 123-year-old series that a game reached a third overtime.

Incredibly, it was Snider who also scored the final goal of regulation and tied things up at seven apiece, leading to all that #FreeLacrosse.

Quite a day for Snider.

Lacrosse rules dictate the two teams would’ve played indefinitely until one side scored a winner, meaning this could’ve gone on for hours without producing a tie. There’s only been one tie in the series, coming  in 1952, before the sudden death rule was implemented.

The single tie will live on forever, but for now, so will this storied triple overtime thriller.
