The No. 7 Maryland men’s lacrosse team scored six goals in the fourth quarter to beat host Albany, 14-9, on Saturday.
The Terps improved to 6-1 and the Great Danes fell to 1-3.
Jared Bernhardt had eight points on three goals and five assists and Louis Dubick had three goals to lead Maryland, which bounced back from last Sunday’s 14-13 overtime loss to then-No. 17 Notre Dame. The Terps were ranked second at the time.
The Terps took control in the second quarter, scoring five consecutive goals to take a 7-2 lead into the break. Four of the goals came in the final five minutes of the quarter, as Maryland took advantage of extra possessions to carry a five-goal lead at halftime.
The Great Danes answered in the third, scoring four of five goals in the quarter to crawl back within two as the final 15 minutes began.
Maryland scored six goals in the fourth quarter, a season high for a single quarter this season, to squash any comeback hopes from the hosts. Albany managed to get back within two with 7:23 remaining, but three straight goals by Maryland ended the game.
The Terps defense held an opponent to under 10 goals for the fifth time this season, thanks in part to a nine-save effort from Danny Dolan in the win. Maryland's faceoff unit held the advantage once again, finishing 17-for-27 and led by a 12-for-20 day from Justin Shockey.
Maryland hosts No. 11 Villanova next Saturday at 1 p.m.
