College lacrosse: No. 5 Maryland stifles No. 7 Navy

  Maryland broke Navy’s seven-game winning streak, which had been the third-longest in the country.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. – The No. 5 Maryland men’s lacrosse team defeated No. 7 Navy, 10-5, on Tuesday night at Capital One Field at Maryland Stadium to put a stamp on their NCAA-best 14th consecutive 10-win season and ninth consecutive victory.

Maryland (10-2, 3-0) smothered the Navy attack, limiting the Mids to just 23 shots and 22 ground balls as senior Greg Danseglio caused three turnovers. Offensively junior Colin Heacock matched his career-high with four points (2G, 2A), while Connor Kelly, Tim Rotanz and Henry West each added two goals.

The Terrapins snapped Navy’s seven-game winning streak, which had been the third-longest in the country.

The Midshipmen (9-3) struck first early in the opening frame, but it was the Terps answered by opening a five-goal run spanning the first and second quarters for a lead they would never relinquish. The offensive outburst was fueled by goals from West, Heacock, Kelly and a pair of scores from Rotanz.

Navy would find the net once more in the second stanza, but the Maryland offense would again answer. This time it was a three-goal run spanning the second and third quarters with scores from West, Kelly and Heacock, who all finished the contest with a pair of goals.

The patented hard-shell defense stood tall once again holding the Navy offense scoreless for a period of 20:58 in the first half. Senior goalie Kyle Bernlohr made five stops on the night.

The in-state rivals traded second half goals as freshman attackman Louis Dubick and redshirt sophomore midfielder Lucas Gradinger each found pay dirt en route to the win.

Maryland returns to action Sunday, April 24, as it looks to clinch a share of the Big Ten title when it welcomes Ohio State to College Park for a 7 p.m. faceoff on Big Ten Network.
