Maryland rallies, tops Boston College, 13-11

Maryland's sixth-ranked women's lacrosse team erased a three-goal first-half deficit to register a 13-11 win over host Boston College yesterday.

Kelly Kasper (Century) led the Terps with four goals and two assists in their last game before the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament.


"This was another hard-fought victory for us," Maryland coach Cindy Timchal said. "We know we have to get better, because we know that Boston College will get better next week, too."

The two teams are set to meet in the first round of next week's tournament.


The Eagles (8-7, 1-4) took a 5-2 lead over the first 20 minutes of play, with three goals on free-position shots. However, Kasper helped Maryland (11-5, 2-3) pull even before the half ended with a pair of scores and an assist to Krista Pellizzi.
