PROVIDENCE, RI - The University of Maryland (4-3), ranked fourth in the country, opened the game with seven straight goals in a span of 7:07 and never looked back, earning a 21-5 victory over the Brown women's lacrosse team (2-1), which dropped its first decision of the year.
Sophomore Mimi DeTolla (Stony Brook, NY) led five different goal scorers for Brown, with a goal and an assist.
After the Terrapins opened up the 7-0 lead, junior leading scorer Amie Biros (Bethesda, MD) got Brown on the board with 21:04 left in the first half. However, Maryland would outscore the Bears, 7-1 before halftime to take a 14-2 lead at the break.
The second half was more of the same, with the Terrapins scoring back-to-back goals to open the half. Brown responded with back-to-back goals of its own, off the sticks of freshmen Bethany Buzzell (Middletown, MD) and Krystina DeLuca (Hillsborough, NJ), but the Terrapins outscored the Bears, 5-1, in the remaining 17:10 for the 21-5 final.
In net for Brown, sophomore Melissa King (Pepper Pike, OH) recorded 12 saves in the loss. Sophomore Erin Walters (Garden City, NY) made her first collegiate appearance in net and made one save in 7:10 of action. The Bears will look to rebound this Friday, March 17, when they travel to Philadelphia to face Temple at 4:00 p.m. in their first road game of the season.
