TOWSON, Md. — Senior Alyssa Murray had six goals and three assists as second-seeded Syracuse University ripped sixth-seeded Virginia, 16-8, at Johnny Unitas Stadium in the NCAA Division I women’s lacrosse semifinals to clinch the school’s second trip to the title game.

The Orange (21-2) will meet top-seeded Maryland for the title on Sunday night. The Terrapins beat Northwestern 9-6.

The Gary Gait-led Orange has reached the semifinals five times since 2008, but lost to Northwestern in 2012 its only previous appearance in the national final.

“I thought that was a great effort on our part,” Gait said. “It was a very good Virginia team that fought hard to the end. I thought our focus was very good from the opening whistle. The execution was exceptional.”

Kayla Treanor had four goals and three assists, setting Syracuse’s single-season women’s lacrosse goal-scoring record with 77 goals.

Carthage’s Kailah Kempney contributed two goals for the Orange, which took an 9-3 halftime lead.

Katie Boyle and Maddie Keeshan both had three goals for Virginia (12-9), which had become the first eight-loss team in tournament history to advance to the semifinals.
