Stanford vs University Maryland Women

Women's Lacrosse is one of my favorite sports to shoot, you get to see some great expressions and emotions without the facemask and helmet from the men’s game.  Not a big fan of shooting under the lights, but I tried my best on Thursday evening in College Park.   Not much of game with the #2-ranked Maryland blowing past No. 8 Stanford,  20-8.
