Freshman Grant Catalino stole the show on Senior Day in No. 9 Maryland's 16-10 win over Yale yesterday at Chevy Chase Bank Field.

The attackman led all scorers with a career-high seven points on four goals and a career-best three assists. Catalino's seven points are the most by a Terp since March 20, 2007, when Michael Phipps had seven in a win over Mount St. Mary's.


Scott Tompkins (Gilman) started things off for the Terps when he received a pass from Catalino and ripped a shot into the Bulldogs' goal for a 1-0 lead.

Catalino scored less than two minutes later when he picked up a ground ball in the left alley and scored past Yale goalkeeper George Carafides.


Maryland (9-5) never trailed, as Drew Evans' goal off an assist from junior All-American Dan Groot at the 6:18 mark started a seven-goal run that put the game out of reach.

The Terps had a 38-30 edge in shots.

Maryland's faceoff combination of Will Dalton (6-of-14), Bryn Holmes (9-of-13) and Jeff Reynolds (2-of-3) won 17 of 30 draws, including six of nine in the second quarter that led to six Terrapin goals.

Dalton (St. Mary's) led the Terps with five ground balls, while and Holmes (McDonogh) and Reynolds (Calvert Hall) had three apiece.
