CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - The Maryland Terrapins, led by Matt Hahn's two goals in the third quarter in an 8.0-second span, claimed their first ACC Tournament Championship today with a 14-11 defeat of Virginia in rain-soaked Charlottesville.
Virginia started the scoring 25 seconds into the game with a Jay Jalbert goal, giving the Cavaliers the early lead. But the Terrapins stormed back with three consecutive goals, the first two coming from Scott Hochstadt, who had a game-high seven goals. The Cavaliers answered with a two-goal run of their own as David Baruch scored from Drew McKnight and David Wren tied the game with an assist from Tucker Radebaugh. After Jalbert was whistled for being offside, Maryland went ahead with a goal from Hochstadt, giving the Terrapins the lead again. The Cavaliers answered with a goal from Michael Leahy as Radebaugh notched his second assist, knotting the score at four at the end of the first period.
Maryland took the lead in the second quarter as Hahn took a pass from Marcus LaChapelle to the cage 35 seconds into the quarter. Jalbert tied the game for the Cavaliers a second time with an unassisted blast from the left side. Virginia went up with 5:26 left in the half as Leahy scored his second goal, but Tournament MVP Hochstadt answered right back for the Terrapins with a goal less than a minute later to send the teams into the break knotted at six.
Hahn's two goals in the beginning of the third quarter gave the Terrapins a lead they would not relinquish. Virginia's Drew Melchionni cut the lead to one as he scored unassisted five minutes into the third quarter, but the Terrapins scored twice in two minutes to take a three-goal lead. Brian Zeller converted one of Andrew Whipple's game-high five assists and Hochstadt scored his fifth goal to give the Terrapins the three-goal cushion.

Jalbert stopped the two-goal run with his conversion of a Hanley Holcomb pass 45 seconds later, but the Terrapins pushed the margin back to three as Hochstadt scored in an extra-man opportunity to give Maryland an 11-8 lead going into the fourth quarter.
The Terrapins took a five-goal lead as Hochstadt scored his seventh goal and Bob Hanna picked up a loose ball on the crease to make the score 13-8 with just under 10 minutes to play. The Cavaliers went on a three-goal run as Jalbert scored his fourth goal with six minutes to go and David Wren notched a bounce shot into the cage 31 seconds later. Long-stick middie Peter Ragosa went end-to-end and cut the deficit to two as he scored with 2:30 remaining. But Hahn hit his fifth goal from Whipple's fifth assist as the Cavaliers turned the ball over on a break and gave the Terrapins some insurance and sent them to the 14-11 win.
