Description:
The 1973 NCAA Division I tournament championship game was played at Franklin Field in Philadelphia in front of 5,965 fans. The undefeated Maryland Terrapins, led by coach Bud Beardmore and Hall of Fame midfielder Frank Urso defeated Johns Hopkins 10 to 9 in two overtimes, with Urso scoring the winning goal 1:18 into overtime. Hopkins had defeated Virginia, 12-9, and Maryland beat Washington and Lee, 18-5, to reach the finals.

This was Maryland's eighth overall men's lacrosse national championship, but first under the newly instituted NCAA playoff format. For his effort, Bud Beardmore was named USILA Coach of the Year. Prior to the Hopkins overtime win, the Terrapins closest game was a five goal victory against UMBC. Maryland had beaten Hopkins 17 to 4 in a regular season game about a month prior to the finals. In the Terps' eleven regular season games, they averaged 17.6 points and held opponents to 5.5 points.

Johns Hopkins employed a possession game, to counter the Terrapins' vaunted offense, which resulted in over 15 minutes of limited-shooting possessions by the Blue Jays in the first half. The Maryland countered with a patient and mistake-free defensive play to offset the stall tactic. Despite this, Urso was able to get free scoring three goals. Associated Press.
