BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) - Heading into the NCAA Lacrosse Championship Adam DiMillo had scored just three goals on the season for Maryland.
The West Seneca native nearly that matched total on Monday -- in the biggest game and on the biggest stage of his college career.
DiMillo scored two goals in the first half to help the Terps defeat Ohio State 9-6 and win the program's first national championship since 1975.

DiMillo, who attended school at Bishop Timon, help the Tigers capture four Monsignor Martin titles and was the consensus No. 1 lacrosse prospect in New York when he committed to Maryland in 2014.
He played in 19 games his freshman and sophomore season with Maryland but never scored until this year.
