No. 2 Terps Cruise Past Mason, 16-4

FAIRFAX, Va. - No. 2 Maryland utilized a ferocious start to drop George Mason, 16-4, on the road in women's lacrosse action Tuesday.

Maryland (5-0, 2-0 ACC) jumped out to a massive 10-0 lead before George Mason even registered its first shot of the day. Tewaaraton nominee Caitlyn McFadden tallied six points in the devastating run, mustering two goals and four assists.

Mason's Megan Udovich finally stymied Maryland's momentum with a pair of goals with two minutes remaining in the first half. It was the first goal the tenacious Terrapin defense had surrendered in over 67 minutes of play after holding No. 9 Virginia scoreless the final 39:43 of Friday's match. Brittany Jones scored with the clock winding down in the first stanza for an 11-2 Maryland lead at half.

Maryland, which faced three ranked teams in its first four matches, was able to employ the majority of its bench Tuesday as 28 Terps landed on the box score. Nine different players scored with McFadden leading the charge with a hat trick and four assists for a season-high seven points. The senior added five ground balls and three caused turnovers to aid Maryland defensively as well. Karri Ellen Johnson, Alex Aust, Amanda Spinnenweber, Brandi Jones and Katie Schwarzmann each notched two goals apiece.
