Coming off a loss to UMBC, the Terps bounced back last Saturday with a good win against Marist, 17-4.
To be honest, it is a game the Terps should have won and they did. We hope this is an indication the Terps are on their way of not playing down to the competition as they did last year and against UMBC this year.
The Terps followed the Marist win up with a convincing win against Villanova, 11-5. The Terps are now 5-1 on the season.
Maryland raced out to a 7-0 lead, holding Villanova scoreless until 4:50 of the second quarter. That is the type of defense you want to see from a team that is vying for a championship.
Up next for the Terps is ACC rival North Carolina in Chapel Hill. The game is this Saturday and will be televised on ESPNU at noon.
In related lacrosse news, the Florida Legislature failed to pass SB266, which would have designated car racing as the state sport of Florida. We will be writing our representatives to introduce the fastest growing sport – lacrosse – as the state sport.
If they have any sense, they will pass that bill.
Fear the Turtle!
