Top-ranked Maryland weathers storm against No. 8 Yale

  Maryland took out Yale, 12-11, on Saturday despite two rain delays that totaled nearly two hours.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- Colin Heacock matched his career-high with five points and Tim Muller caused three turnovers as the No. 1 Maryland men’s lacrosse team overcame two rain delays to defeat No. 8 Yale, 12-11, at Capital One Field at Maryland Stadium Saturday.

All in all the rain delays totaled 1 hour and 58 minutes, with the latter delay coming with just 37 seconds to play and the Terps clinging to a 12-11 lead. The Maryland defense held strong though, preventing Yale from a quality game-winning attempt to close out the game.

The game marked the 10th consecutive home victory for the Terrapins, which advanced to 4-0 on the season.

Yale (1-1) opened the scoring 1:15 into the game, but Maryland quickly countered as the All-American defenseman Muller unleashed a cannon for his first career goal. Freshman Jared Bernhardt followed with a man-up goal to give the Terps a 2-1 lead.

Following a Bulldog goal, senior Matt Rambo tallied back-to-back goals and Heacock added another as the Terps extended their lead to 5-2.

Heacock completed his hat trick in the second quarter with two more strikes and Bernhardt added his second of the game as Maryland entered the halftime break with an 8-4 advantage. Heacock’s five points gave him 100 for his career.

Maryland continued to roll after the halftime break, as the Terps scored three of the next four goals for a hefty six-goal lead, 11-5. Nick Brozowski and Austin Henningsen both scored during the run.

The Terps won 14 of the last 17 faceoffs to close the game, which helped fuel the run. Yale scored six of the last seven goals in the game, but its comeback effort ultimately fell short.

Rambo tallied three points in the game to move into a tie for seventh in Maryland history with Roger Goss (1958-60) at 192 points.
