Rambo's six total points are the most by a Maryland player in a NCAA semifinal round game in 17 years.

With the victory, the Terps will play in their third national title game in the last five years.

"We knew it was going to be a tough game," Maryland coach John Tillman said. "We knew it was going to be a game of runs."

Maryland goalie Kyle Bernlohr was outstanding in goal, recording six saves and holding Johns Hopkins to only four goals in the first two quarters combined.

The Terps will advance to play Denver in the national championship game at 1 p.m. ET on Monday at Lincoln Financial Field.
