Terps Top Hoyas In Amazing Comeback

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Senior Will Yeatman's three goals in a dramatic 7-0 run spurred the No. 7 Maryland men's lacrosse team to a 15-13 come-from-behind victory over the No. 13 Georgetown Hoyas Saturday afternoon in front of a crowd of 2,532 at the Hoyas' Multi-Sport Field.

Maryland (2-0) trailed by four goals midway through the third quarter, but the Terps ran off seven straight over a span of 10:26 to take the lead and stun the Hoyas (0-1) on their home field. Junior Ryan Young, who helped keep the Terps in the game in the first half with four assists and finished the game with career-bests of six points and five assists, started the run with a goal and then assisted on the second Terrapin goal.

Farrell led the defensive effort for the Terps and finished the game with 10 groundballs, which is the first time since Will Dalton had 11 groundballs against UMBC in 2008 that a Terp has had 10 or more groundballs in a game. Holmes finished with seven groundballs, while Jake Bernhardt had five.
