Photos: Maryland vs. Virginia (Div. I Men's Final)

The great teams always answer, and in a season where Virginia repeatedly had to rally from wounds both self-inflicted and otherwise, the Cavaliers saved perhaps their best answer for last. Midfielder Colin Briggs scored five goals two days after being suspended for Saturday's semifinal, and attackman Matt White added two of his three during a championship-clinching, three-goal spurt late in the fourth quarter, as seventh-seeded Virginia pulled away from home-standing Maryland for a 9-7 win in the NCAA Division I men's lacrosse final Monday before 35,661 sun-drenched fans at M&T Bank Stadium. © John Strohsacker/LaxPhotos.com
