BALTIMORE (CBS) -- The Northwestern Wildcats have established themselves as one of the premiere women's lacrosse programs in the country – and this was their third straight appearance in the Final Four.
Unfortunately, all three of these appearances have ended with losses in the semifinals – and this one Friday in rough fashion.
A good crowd of 'Cats fans made the trip to Maryland and likely enjoyed it at first – as Northwestern dominated No. 1 seed and undefeated North Carolina for much of the day.
Dylan Amonte made it 14-7 with 10 minutes to play.
But the Tar Heels would score eight unanswered goals - capped by a shot from Sam Geiersbach to take the lead 15-14 with just over a minute to play.
That score would be the final, in a heartbreaking end to another great season for Northwestern.
