Maryland rediscovered itself Saturday, and Virginia is still searching.
Terps attackman Jay Carlson scored three goals, and the No. 5 Maryland men's lacrosse team — behind a dominating midfield that scored five times — held on for a 9-7 victory over No. 13 Virginia in front of an announced crowd of 5,226 at Klockner Stadium.
The Terps (7-1), who suffered a 10-8 upset loss to North Carolina on March 23, showed no side effects of that loss. Besides Carlson's three goals, offensive midfielders John Haus added two and Mike Chanenchuk had one.
