Wisnauskas completed with a hat technique of his own, while Murphy put in 4 objectives.
Maryland plainly had some incomplete company after losing to Virginia in last year’s nationwide champion, and rejecting the Cavaliers a 3rd straight title in such emphatic style mostlikely included to the excitement of Sunday’s triumph.
The Terrapins sanctuary’t dropped a videogame all season, and they’ve outscored their 2 challengers in the competition 39-14.
As much as a single-elimination format produces a level of unpredictability, it’s challenging seeing anyone stop Maryland this season.
