Colin Heacock (Boys' Latin) and Matt Rambo each had a hat trick to power the No. 5 Maryland men's lacrosse team to a 13-8 victory over host Penn on Tuesday.

The Terps (6-2) fell behind 2-0 early before going on a 4-0 run from 10:48 to five minutes left in the first quarter for a lead they never relinquished. Maryland led 6-3 after one quarter.


Alex Roesner (Loyola Blakefield) and Kevin McGeary got the first two goals of the second quarter as the Quakers (5-3) cut the lead to 6-5, but Maryland responded with the next three goals to make it 9-5. Penn got one back when Joe Licciardi scored with 1:29 left before halftime, but a Terps goal with just six seconds left in the half put Maryland up 10-6.

Maryland scored the only goal in the third quarter; meanwhile, Penn went nearly 24 minutes of game time without a goal before Simon Mathias got the Quakers back on the board with 7:55 left in the fourth. The Terps answered with the next two goals, just 1:13 apart, before Pat Berkery closed the scoring with a late Penn goal off a feed from Kevin McGeary.

Maryland goalie Kyle Bernlohr made 10 saves. Reed Junkin had eight for Penn.

The Terps outshot the Quakers 47-27 and have won five straight dating to March 8.
