No. 9 Maryland eases by No. 10 Princeton

  Maryland improved to 4-1 on the season.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- Sophomore Matt Rambo tallied his second hat trick of the season to lead No. 9 Maryland to an 11-4 victory against No. 10 Princeton on Saturday afternoon at Capital One Field at Byrd Stadium.

Maryland’s defense had an exceptional performance, holding Princeton well below its season average of 14.7 goals per game coming into the contest. The Terps also snapped Kip Orban’s NCAA-leading 29-game goal scoring streak, which went back to March 5, 2013.

Maryland (4-1) and Princeton (3-1) exchanged goals to open up the game before Rambo scored the second of his three goals with 1:24 remaining the second quarter to give Maryland a 3-2 advantage at the intermission.

The Terrapins held a 4-3 advantage midway through the third quarter before the floodgates opened.

Maryland used a six-goal run, including three goals over the span of 1:26 and two goals from Jay Carlson that came just nine seconds apart, to open a commanding 10-3 lead.

The offensive push began with a goal from Dylan Maltz, followed by the pair from Carlson, and finished with one apiece from Joe LoCascio, Colin Heacock and Rambo.

The run was keyed by All-American faceoff specialist Charlie Raffa, who won seven of nine faceoffs in the third quarter and finished the game 13 of 20 at the X.

Maryland’s defense never let the Princeton offense get going, limiting the Tiger attack to just one goal in each quarter. Kyle Bernlohr put forth another stellar effort in the cage racking up 11 saves.

Henry West put in a strong effort for the Terps, tallying two goals and one assist.
