Junior attacker Megan Whittle scored five goals as the No. 1 Maryland women’s lacrosse team (20-0) defeated High Point (16-4) 21-6 Sunday afternoon at the Field Hockey & Lacrosse Complex.
“Credit to High Point, they had a great season,” head coach Cathy Reese said. “We were able to see a lot of people play today, and we had a really good team effort today. We were able to play good defense and that turned into good looks on offense on the other end.”
Senior midfielder Zoe Stukenberg had five points (3G, 2A) and junior attacker Kacie Longo set a career high with four goals. Sophomore attacker Caroline Steele notched four points (2G, 2A) and sophomore midfielder Jen Giles scored a hat trick.
Maryland controlled the game from the opening draw, taking a 7-0 lead at 16:20 on Whittle’s fourth goal of the afternoon. Longo, Giles and Steele pushed the lead to 10-1, and Giles and Stukenberg scored in the last five minutes to give the Terps a 12-2 halftime advantage.
The Terrapins used a 7-2 run in the first 17 minutes of the second half as Maryland lead 19-4. Kelsey Cummings scored her first goal of the season in that span. Hannah Warther notched her fourth goal of the season at 7:28, and Longo posted her fourth of the game with 5:37 left.
