Terps Squash Johns Hopkins 17-4 To Open its Big 10 Season

Senior attacker Caroline Wannen posted six points as the No. 1 Maryland women’s lacrosse team (7-0, 1-0 B1G) opened conference play with a 17-4 win over No. 16 Johns Hopkins (7-2, 0-1) Sunday afternoon.

“We started a little slow, but I think as the game progressed, we settled in a little bit,” head coach Cathy Reese said. “We did a lot better in the second half on the draw, and on fighting for possessions and 50-50 balls. The offense started getting better looks, and Emily had a great game backlining our defense.”

Wannen scored twice and added four assists. Sophomore attacker Caroline Steele notched four goals while senior midfielder Zoe Stukenberg, sophomore midfielder Jen Giles, junior attacker Megan Whittle and freshman attacker Brindi Griffin each added two scores.

In her first start of the season, senior Emily Kift notched 10 saves and a .714 save percentage in goal.

    Terrific effort from Kift and Caroline Wannen continues to escape notice as she puts together an outstanding senior season.

    Terps defense was beyond great. Hopkins hadn’t scored less than 10 in a game this season.
