Team of the week

  A six-goal third quarter lifted Maryland to an important win this week.

Maryland counted a convincing win against a top-10 opponent to earn NCAA.com Men’s Lacrosse Team of the Week honors for games played March 3 through March 9.

The Terrapins (4-1) trounced then-No. 10 Princeton 11-4 behind a hat trick from sophomore Matt Rambo and resistance steered by Big 10 Defensive Player of the Week Casey Ikeda.

Maryland led 3-2 at halftime, but 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 run was keyed by All-American faceoff specialist Charlie Raffa, who won seven of nine faceoffs in the third quarter and 13 of 20 during the game.

Maryland visits No. 15 Villanova Saturday, March 14.

No. 18 Brown (4-0)
