Terps gain Outright Big 10 Title by Defeating Northwestern (Again) 18-9

The Maryland women’s lacrosse team secured its third straight outright Big Ten Championship on Thursday following an 18-9 win at Northwestern. The victory also secured the top seed in next week’s Big Ten Tournament for the Terrapins.

Maryland completed an unbeaten conference season at 6-0, and improved to 17-0 overall. Caroline Steele led the Terps with six goals and one assist, while Caroline Wannen tallied four goals and an assist. Seniors Zoe Stukenberg and Megan Whittle each registered a pair of goals and dished out a pair of assists.

The 2017 Big Ten Women’s Lacrosse Tournament will be hosted by Maryland at the Field Hockey & Lacrosse Complex on May 5 & 7, and for the first time will feature four conference teams.

    The Terps had a rough start for the first 10-12 minutes before settling in and absolutely dominating Northwestern.

    Maryland got a nice contribution from Lizzie Colson last night. The highly touted freshman seems to be settling in to a new role primarily as a defensive middie.

    Taylor Hensh had a fine offensive game and bounced back after missing two easy shots early. She got a bit more time than usual when Jen Giles left with some sort of injury early in the first half. Let’s hope it was precautionary.

    Caroline Wannen was her usual productive self with 4 goals and an assist. Zoe Stukenberg, too. The senior was all over the field as usual and filled in for Kali Hartshorn who struggled mightily in the draw circle against Shelby Fredericks.

    And Megan Whittle did a nice job contributing with draw controls, ground balls and assists when NW decided to face guard her. She added a pair of goals late.
