Blog Replay: Washington at Salisbury (MD3 Semifinals)

It's a game that needs no extra hype.

When Salisbury and Washington College get together, there is already plenty on the line. Usually the prize for the winner of this match-up is the Clark Cup, given to the winner of the annual -- and legendary -- War on the Shore clash. This time? It's a chance to raise a trophy far more important.

The Sea Gulls won the regular season meeting, 12-7, helped by its midfield depth and suffocating defense. That game was played in March, however, and the Shoremen are now one of the hottest teams in the country after unseating defending national champion Stevenson on Wednesday. Will Salisbury make it a clean sweep and get a shot at title No. 11, or will Washington College return to the championship game for the first time since 1998?
