FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) ' Top-seeded Loyola of Maryland beat Maryland 9-3 Monday to win the NCAA men's lacrosse title behind Eric Lusby's four goals. Lusby set a record with 17 goals in the tournament.
The Greyhounds captured their first national lacrosse championship and finished the season at 18-1. Maryland (12-6) lost the title game for the second straight year.
Chris Layne added three assists for the Greyhounds, whose only loss this season was to Johns Hopkins in overtime on April 28.
