Maryland wins second straight top five matchup vs. Albany

  Maryland became the third men's lacrosse program to win 800 games.

ALBANY, N.Y. – Senior Ben Chisolm scored two fourth quarter goals and Dan Morris made 12 key saves to lead the No. 3 Maryland men’s lacrosse team to a 12-11 win over No. 5 Albany Wednesday.

The victory marked Maryland’s 800th win as a varsity program, becoming the third team in NCAA Division I history to reach the milestone (Johns Hopkins, Syracuse).

With the game tied at 9-9 and less than 14 minutes to play, senior Matt Rambo broke the tie and Chisolm added his first of the game to give the Terps an 11-9 lead. After Albany scored to draw within one, Chisolm fired the eventual game-winner with 5:40 to play.

Chisolm, who totaled just three points in his first three seasons as a Terrapin, now has nine points on five goals and four assists as a senior.

Albany (9-2) scored to pull within one, 12-11, with 3:34 to play, but the Maryland defense held strong as the Great Danes frantically tried to force overtime in the closing seconds.

Maryland (8-2) was propelled in the game by six goals scored in the final two minutes of quarters, including three in the first frame. Three of the goals were scored with three seconds left in the first, 11 seconds remaining in the second and 23 seconds left in the third.

Junior Tim Rotanz led all Terps scorers with three goals in the game, while Rambo (2g, 1a) and senior Colin Heacock (1g, 2a) each added three points. Defensively Matt Neufeldt had six ground balls and three caused turnovers, while Bryce Young totaled four ground balls.

The Terps hit the road again Sunday when they face No. 11 Rutgers in a critical Big Ten matchup at 7 pm on Big Ten Network. Maryland will clinch a berth in the Big Ten Tournament with a win.
