Maryland lacrosse beat future-Big Ten foe Michigan on the road by a score of 13-5. In a excellent all-around performance, the Terps have started the season 7-0 for the first time since the 2003-04 season.
Junior Jay Carlson got a hat trick – in the first half—and finished the game with four goals, tied with freshman Matt Rambo for the most goals in Tuesday’s game. Senior Mike Chanenchuk and freshman Connor Cannizzaro finished with two goals and sophomore Henry West finished with a goal to lead a prolific offensive showing in a 13-5 win against Michigan.
Maryland went into halftime up 6-2, but the score is not indicative of the one-sided affair. The defense did a great job picking up the Michigan attackers and forcing them into tough shots. Senior goalie Nick Amato allowed just five goals throughout the game, giving another great performance in another great win for the Terps.
Maryland has thus far surpassed expectations this year and will look to start the season 8-0 for the first time since the 2003-04 season when they take on seventh-ranked UNC in Chapel Hill. It will be the third ranked opponent Maryland has faced this year, as they are 2-0 in games against those teams thanks to the dominating performances against Syracuse and Duke.
