The TERPS convincing 15 - 7 win over Virginia sends the
TERPS to the ACC Championship game on Sunday against
Duke. The victory was also significant as it was Virginia's
first conference tournament loss since 2005.

Karri Ellen Johnson got the TERPS on the board at 1:30 in,
followed shortly by a tying VA goal. Next 4, all TERPS, with
Caitlyn McFadden scoring 2, then with 1 each by Laura
Merrifield and Brandi Jones. Virginia picked up a few and
then each team scored once more for a 6 - 5 Terp lead going
to halftime.

The second half was a completely different story with 3
TERPS goals in the first 3 minutes to open up a 9 - 5 lead.
The defense was making Virginia really work for everything
with very timely doubles, great slides, good talk and superb
goaltending by Brittany Dipper. Oh yea, we kept putting the
ball in the net with 2 more TERPS scores - Caits and Laura -
before Virginia made their final goal of the game. The TERPS
finished the game with a 4 goal barrage for the 15 - 7 final.

Before leaving on Friday, one of the TERPS remarked that
"the next time we are in this building, we will be ACC
Champions." The TERPS will play for their 6th ACC title, but
the first for all members of the 2009 squad, on Sunday at 1p.
