Maryland's Maxwell Ritz scored the game-winner with 1:20 left in the overtime after one-timing a rebound on a Bill McGlone shot capping a Maryland rally as the Terps defeated Virginia 8-7 Friday night at M&T Bank Stadium.
With the win, the Terps (7-5) advanced to the ACC Finals where they will take on Duke, who defeated North Carolina 13-11 earlier in the day. Maryland controlled the pace of play in the first quarter holding a 12-5 advantage in shots. Brendan Healy put the Terps midway through the first finishing in transition at the 7:30 mark. After the teams traded saves and turnovers, Virginia's John Christmas evened the score after taking a feed from Matt Ward.
The Cavaliers took a 3-1 lead to start the second half after Matt Poskay finished on a pass from Kyle Dixon. Less than a minute later, Christmas got loose on a man-up opportunity and found Dixon for the goal. The Terps stormed back in the quarter, though, closing the period on a 3-0 run on scores from Maxwell Ritz, Healy and Xander Ritz and Harry Alford made a save as time expired to give Maryland a 4-3 halftime advantage.
Drew Thompson quickly evened the score at 13:05 after Virginia's Jack deVilliers won the face-off. The Cavaliers took the lead just three minutes later after Rob Bateman found Matt Ward for the score. Andrew Schwartzman answered for the Terps just after their extra-man opportunity expired. Maryland won the ensuing face-off, but a save by Kip Turner started the Virginia possession and Brendan Gill converted on the other end for a 6-5 lead with 3:56 left in the third quarter. The third period closed with each team unable to convert on 30-second extra-man opportunities.
Virginia stretched its lead to 7-5 in the fourth quarter after Dixon's second goal of the game. Dixon took a feed from Christmas from behind the cage and his shot was re-directed past Alford by a Maryland defender at 11:29.
Schwartzman pulled the Terps within one six minutes later after his second goal of the game on a man-up opportunity after J.J. Horrisey was called for a pushing penalty. After a Maryland timeout at 2:54, Bill McGlone dodged to his left and got free and bounced his shot past the keeper to tie the score at 7-7. Virginia controlled the ensuing face-off, but Dixon turned the ball over in the offensive end with just under two minutes left. The Terps controlled the clock for the remainder of the game, and McGlone fired the final shot of the game but Turner was up to the task to make the save with just three seconds left in the game.
In overtime, Alford made two point-blank saves - including one in which
he had to get back to his feet to save a shot by Brendan Gill. The Cavs
got off six shots in the possession but were unable to capitalize.
McGlone fired a shot from 15 yards that was saved by Turner, but Maxwell
Ritz jumped in the air and one-timed the shot past Turner for the
game-winner with just 1:20 left in the overtime.
