The unseeded Notre Dame men's lacrosse team is coming to Baltimore next weekend for the Final Four.

The Fighting Irish knocked off No. 3 overall seed Maryland 7-5 today in the NCAA men's lacrosse tournament quarterfinals in Princeton, N.J.

Notre Dame (9-6) took down No. 6 seed Princeton last weekend in the first round.

The Fighting Irish grabbed a 5-1 first-half lead on the Terps (12-4) and never looked back in reaching its first Final Four since 2001.

Sean Rogers scored three goals for the Fighting Irish and goaltender Scott Rodgers shut down Maryland's offense today in securing the victory. The five goals scored by the Terps was a season-low.

Notre Dame will face the winner of Sunday's quarterfinal game between Army and Cornell next Saturday at M&T Bank Stadium.
