March 12, 2005
COLLEGE PARK, MD - Seventh-ranked Maryland poured in 14 second-half goals on its way to a 20-7 victory over Brown Saturday afternoon at the Lacrosse/Field Hockey Complex.
The Terps jumped on the Bears early, scoring twice in the game's opening 1:30. Maryland then went up 3-0, but the Bears remained in the game mounting a 4-2 run over the game's next 22 minutes.
After senior Sarah Passano (Baltimore, MD) made the score 5-4 with just over a minute left in the first half, Brown won the following draw control but turned it over in its offensive zone with 37 seconds remaining. Maryland scooped up the ball and scored to give the Terps a 6-4 lead heading into the half.
Maryland broke the game open early in the second half scoring eight unanswered goals in the opening 11 minutes.
Brown finally got on the board in the second half at the 13:34 mark when sophomore Jen Redd (Towson, MD) converted a free-position shot for the Bears. The Terps did not let up, though, going on a 6-0 run in the game's next 11 minutes.
Brown scored two goals in the game's final minute as freshman Mimi DeTolla (Stony Brook, NY), who scored her first career goal, and Redd found the net for the Bears.
In net for Brown, freshman Melissa King (Pepper Pike, OH) made her first career start and posted 15 saves.
The Bears return to action Wednesday, March 16, when they travel to Boston College for a 7:00 p.m. contest.
