The field has been set for the 2017 NCAA Division I Men’s Lacrosse Quarterfinals being held Sunday, May 21, at the University of Delaware’s Delaware Stadium.

Colonial Athletic Association champion Towson (10-4) upended No. 7 seed Penn State 12-8 and No. 8 seed Albany (14-2) got past defending national champion North Carolina by a 15-12 margin on Saturday. Tournament No. 1 seed Maryland (12-3) advanced with a 13-10 win over Bryant and No. 2 seed Syracuse (12-2) edged Yale 11-10 on Sunday.

This Sunday’s matchups at Delaware Stadium will feature Towson vs. Syracuse at 12 noon followed by Maryland taking on Albany at 2:30 p.m. The four winners will advance to the NCAA Championships May 27-29 at Gillette Stadium in the Boston area.

Tickets to Sunday’s quarterfinal games at Delaware Stadium range from $10-30 and can be purchased online at www.bluehens.com or on-site beginning at 10 a.m. on Sunday. Group tickets are also available for as low as $5. Both games will be televised live on ESPN2.

Delaware Stadium is serving as the host site for the NCAA Tournament for the fourth time as Delaware hosted the national championship game in 1984, the first-ever Final Four format with the semifinals and finals in 1986, two first round games in 2002, and two NCAA quarterfinal games in 2014. The venue seats 22,000 and features a FieldTurf playing surface.

Maryland is led by senior attackman and Tewaaraton finalist Matt Rambo (La Salle Duke’s LC), who recorded a career-high eight points and matched a program NCAA Tournament record with six assists to lead the No. 1 Terrapins team to the victory over Bryant.

Rambo has been nothing short of dominant in his senior campaign, totaling 75 points on 36 goals and 39 assists against the nation’s top-ranked strength of schedule. The 2017 Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year, Rambo leads the conference in both points/g and assists/g.

Rambo has pieced together one of the most prestigious careers in Maryland’s illustrious history, leading the Terrapin senior class to a program record 58 wins and advancing to three NCAA semifinals.

Rambo recently became Maryland’s all-time points leader, breaking Bob Boneillo’s 37-year-old record. He shattered the record in remarkable fashion against Johns Hopkins, as he totaled the six points needed just 18 minutes into the contest. He finished the game matching his career-high with seven points.

The senior is also just five goals away from becoming Maryland’s all-time leader in goals. He is looking to break Joe Walters’ record of 153 goals set in 2006.
