Boston College vs. North Carolina: 2022 NCAA women's lacrosse championship highlights

SYRACUSE, N.Y. – Two games. Two top-five wins. The No. 4 Syracuse recorded its second consecutive victory against a team ranked in the top five to start the season, defeating No. 2 Maryland, 20-11, in the JMA Wireless Dome on Friday.
 
Graduate student Meaghan Tyrrell, who is this week's IWLCA and ACC Offensive Player of the Week after posting eight points against then No. 4 Northwestern, recorded a career-high 11 points on six goals and five assists against the Terrapins. Goalkeeper Delaney Sweitzer recorded a career-high 13 saves, including six on Maryland free-position attempts.

The Orange (2-0) never trailed in the contest as Megan Carney and Tyrrell scored back-to-back goals to start the game. Tyrrell scored two in a row and then assisted on Carney's second of the day to give Syracuse a 6-2 lead with 3:22 left in the first quarter. The Terrapins (1-1) fought back and scored the final three goals of the quarter to cut the lead to 6-5.
 
Syracuse started to pull away in the second quarter. Tyrrell started the scoring on an assist from Emma Tyrrell before Sierra Cockerille and Maddy Baxter added goals. After a Maryland goal, Baxter and Emma Ward found the back of the net to send the Orange into the locker room with an 11-6 halftime lead.
