Maryland Men's Lacrosse 2011 ACC Champs

Game highlights from the 2011 ACC Championship game played in Durham. The #6 Terps beat #7 Duke 11-9 to claim their first conference title since 2005. Ryan Young claimed the game-winning goal for the Terps after a rough week for his family.

In a segment before the game, the cameras panned up on Ryan and Kevin Young. At that moment, I knew this was more than a game. Both brothers just lost their mother to Pancreatic Cancer exactly a week ago and earned a chance to play against one another, but it was also a chance to play together.

After the game, Ryan Young had a chance to speak about his mother. He stated how much his mother wanted the same things for him and his brother. She told Coach Tillman before the season that she wanted Ryan to do three things: win an ACC Championship, win a National Championship, and Graduate. One out of three so far Ryan.
