Men's Lacrosse ACCtion: Tuesday, April 15
April 14, 2009
COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Early and often, that's how the University of Maryland men's lacrosse team scored in its historic 700th victory, a 15-6 rout of Binghamton Tuesday afternoon at Ludwig Field. The 2009 senior class, playing in its final regular season home game, led the charge for the Terps, scoring nine of the team's 15 goals.
The victory was the 700th for the Maryland program, making it just the fifth Division I program to reach that historic milestone, joining Johns Hopkins, Syracuse, Navy and Army. The Terps now boast an all-time record of 700-236-4 in their 84-year history.
The senior salute got off to an early start with Jeff Reynolds burying a runner from the right alley at the 12:27 mark of the first quarter. Each of the next four Terrapin goals saw a senior either score or pick up the assist.
Senior Nick Ward fed junior long pole Dan Halayko on a fast break for a 2-0 Maryland lead. Senior Scott Tompkins scored off an assist from classmate Dan Groot for a 3-0 advantage. After the Bearcats got on the board with a goal from Andy Cook, Reynolds answered with a bounce shot from 10 yards away off an assist by senior Jeremy Sieverts. Sieverts then gave Maryland a 5-1 cushion with a runner down the left alley.
