No. 1 Terps roll to another big win, topping OSU 18-9

Carolina Wannen scored two goals but was a top facilitator with three assists against Ohio State.

It was another game and another big win for the No. 1 Maryland Terrapins women’s lacrosse team as they blew out the visiting Ohio State Buckeyes on Saturday afternoon, 18-9.

Megan Whittle and Caroline Wannen each had five-point games to lead the charge, though their efforts game in quite different ways. Whittle led Maryland with four goals while dishing one assist. Wannen, meanwhile, matched Jen Giles for the team lead with three assists. Giles had one goal to go with her trifecta of helpers and led the team with five draw controls.

Ten different Terps scored goals and 11 overall registered points in the game as they overpowered the Buckeyes in shots, 45-21, and ground balls, 21-11. Maryland also caused eight of Ohio State’s 15 turnovers in the game. Zoe Stukenberg had two caused turnovers to go with her two goals, four groundballs, and three draw controls.

Ohio State scored first in the game to put Maryland in a rare deficit early in the game. But the Terps quickly got back on top. It didn’t even take them a full minute to tie the game and just a minute and a half after that Whittle scored a second straight goal to put Maryland ahead. They wouldn’t drop that lead. Wannen feed Caroline Steele to make it a 3-1 game with 22:17 left in the game.

Ohio State’s Sage Darling notched her second goal inside the first 10 minutes, but Maryland scored three more in a row. Maryland continued to widely outpace Ohio State to an 11-4 lead at halftime.

Once again, the Buckeyes opened the second half with a score, but Maryland just wasn’t going to slow down. The only time Ohio State scored back-to-back goals in the game was at the midway point of the second half, but it was only two goals in a row. Otherwise, Maryland constantly scored three goals to every one of the Buckeyes’ score.

Maryland improved to 15-0 on the year and 4-0 in Big Ten play. They will complete their regular season with road games at Penn State and Northwestern before hosting the league postseason tournament, beginning on May 5.

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.
