Sophomore Austin Henningsen had a great day at the faceoff X, going 18-for-24 (75%). The result marked the eighth consecutive game with at least 13 goals for the Terps since 2016.

Bernhardt found the back of the net twice, in addition to scores by Heacock, Dylan Maltz and Isaiah Davis-Allen. The goal was Davis-Allen’s first of the season. After St. Joe’s scored a pair of goals to cut its deficit to one, 5-4, sophomore Louis Dubick fed Matt Neufeldt for a goal and then scored one of his own to put the Terps ahead, 7-4. Adam DiMillo also scored his first career goal in the second quarter.
Amidst Maryland’s mid-game run, the Terrapin defense clamped down to hold the Hawks scoreless for a stretch of 20:13. Goalkeeper Dan Morris made seven saves in the win.
