Catalino's Four Goals Propel No. 6 Terps Men's Lacrosse Past Towson, 9-7
The Terps came out and controlled the action early in the first, but it was the Tigers that drew first blood at the 6:27 mark on a Justin Schneider goal. Maryland responded just a couple of minutes later to tie the score at 1-1. Yeatman started the play for the Terrapins, drawing a double team as he tried to bring the ball to the goal line extended. He quickly moved the ball to the X to Young, who found Reed on the right wing, where he buried a low-to-high shot into the upper left corner.
Maryland took its first lead of the game a minute and half into the second quarter on another play that won't show up in the boxscore. Senior Dan Groot split-dodged past his defender and drew a swarm of Tiger defenders 10 yards in front of the Towson goal. He swung the ball to senior Jeremy Sieverts, who made a quick pass to Catalino on the left wing and he put a low-to-low shot past Tiger goalie Rob Wheeler for a 2-1 Terrapin lead.
