Sophomore Colin Heacock (Boys' Latin) had a career-high four points and nine players scored as the No. 3 Maryland men's lacrosse team defeated Robert Morris, 13-4, Tuesday, for its sixth straight victory.
The top-ranked defense in the nation had an excellent first half, holding Robert Morris scoreless on just seven shots attempted. Maryland took advantage offensively, scoring nine first-half goals and never looking back.
Heacock opened the scoring by picking up a loose ball in front of the cage and finishing to give Maryland the 1-0 lead. Henry West then scored a pair of goals from the wing, as the Terps took a 3-0 lead into the second quarter.
The Terps continued to display their offensive prowess in the second quarter, posting six goals to open a 9-0 advantage.
Bobby Gribbin scored a pair of goals in the period to lead the way, while Jay Carlson (St. Paul's), Matt Rambo, Dylan Maltz and Heacock also scored.
The nation's leader in save percentage, Maryland goalkeeper Kyle Bernlohr, made five saves in the first half, before relinquishing goalkeeping duties to Dan Morris.
Heacock had his second hat trick in as many games early in the third quarter, but it was Robert Morris that finally ended a 39:50 scoreless drought with three straight goals to end the period.
Zack Wholley ended the Colonials' scoreless streak with his first goal of the season on a nice dodge from the wing, before Christian Zawadzki added a goal of his own. Ben Chisolm closed the Maryland scoring.
The Terps will return to College Park this weekend as they welcome Michigan for the first Big Ten conference game in Maryland men's lacrosse history.
The game will air live on the Big Ten Network at 5 p.m. Sunday.
