Wahoos, Terps Advance In NCAA LAX Tourney

A fourth quarter goal from Chris Bocklet via Steele Stanwick proved to be the difference as the No. 8 Virginia Cavaliers (12-3) outlasted the No. 12 Princeton Tigers (11-5) on Sunday afternoon during the NCAA First Round, 6-5, inside Klöckner Stadium.

The six goals by UVa is the lowest number of scores for the Cavaliers in an NCAA win and the 11 total goals between the two teams tied for the fifth-fewest ever in an NCAA Tournament game, four other games are tied for first with 10 total goals. Six other NCAA Tournament games have featured 11 total goals, most recent the Syracuse vs. Maryland quarterfinal last season.

UVa advances to the NCAA quarterfinal round next Sunday in Philadelphia, playing the winner of tonight's Notre Dame vs. Yale first round game. UVa's NCAA quarterfinal contest will be played at PPL Park and faceoff is TBA. The game will be televised live on ESPNU in HD.
