No. 2 Boston College got to the finals for the third straight year following a thrilling 15-14 double overtime win over North Carolina. Senior Sam Apuzzo delivered the game-winning goal at 4:48 in the second overtime period to complete the comeback. The Eagles trailed by six goals in the first half before kicking things into gear.

Maryland broke an early 4-4 tie against Northwestern in their semifinal matchup, then never trailed again. The Terps avenged their Big Ten tournament defeat, topping Northwestern in dominating fashion 25-13. The game marked the most goals the Terps had ever scored in Cathy Reese's 13 seasons at the helm and it was an offensive effort powered by Brindi Griffin's six goals and one assist.
