No. 1 Terps cruise to another big win

Freshman midfielder Kali Hartshorn led Maryland with six points on five goals and one assist against No. 7 Princeton.

And again, the No. 1 Maryland Terrapins women’s lacrosse team faced a tough opponent when No. 7 Princeton came to College Park on Wednesday night, and again, they rolled to another victory.

Maryland scored the first six goals of the game on their way to an 18-12 victory over the Tigers. The Terps outshot the Tigers 47-27, beat them on ground balls 24-11 and went 21-for-23 on clearing attempts.

Kali Hartshorn had six points while both she and Megan Whittle had five goals in the game. Jen Giles also had five points with four goals and one assist. Zoe Stukenberg posted a hat trick with one helper.

Whittle and Hartshorn combined for the first five goals of the game. Whittle scored two of the first three while Hartshorn completed her natural hat trick just seven minutes into the game. Giles then put the Terps up 6-0 with 22:36 left in the first half with a free position goal.

Princeton scored two goals to end the Terps run, but Maryland followed with five of the next six goals in the game to push ahead 11-3 with 6:29 left in the quarter. Whittle completed her natural hat trick with 15:23 left in the first half.

The Tigers were able to outscore Maryland 3-1 in the final six minutes of the first half to keep Maryland from earning a running clock, which they never were able to get in the game.

Maryland, though, wasn’t ever threatened and put things away when they gained a nine-goal lead with four of the first five goals in the second half. Stukenberg went back-to-back just over a minute apart to put Maryland ahead 16-7 with 19:43 left in the game.

Princeton outscored Maryland 5-2 after that but couldn’t come close to making a game of it.

Maryland will remain at home for a game on Saturday when they host Ohio State on Saturday at noon.

Editor in Chief
You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
