Glaros guides No. 2 Maryland to victory against No. 6 Duke

DURHAM, N.C. -- Senior Beth Glaros erupted for six goals to lift No. 2 Maryland to a 19-10 victory at No. 6 Duke on Saturday at Koskinen Stadium.

Glaros nearly doubled her goal output for the season with six against Duke (3-2, 0-1 ACC). The senior also added three draw controls, two ground balls and two caused turnovers to give Maryland (6-0, 1-0 ACC) its first conference win in 2014. Sophomore Taylor Cummings tallied a season-high five goals and posted seven draw controls, three caused turnovers and a pair of ground balls to lead the Terps.

Maryland got the exact start they were searching for when it shot out the gate with a 5-0 lead a mere 7:15 into the game. Glaros and Cummings accounted for all the scoring in the opening drive.

Maddy Acton put Duke on the board at 21:17 with an unassisted score but Glaros quickly answered with a transition tally off an interception 20 seconds later for a 6-1 Terrapin advantage.

Following another Acton goal at 20:29, Maryland again stepped on the gas, generating a 3-0 run with goals from Kelly McPartland, Glaros and Cummings, for a 9-2 score with 12:33 remaining in the first half.

Duke mustered its best scoring sequence of the game when it posted five unanswered goals -- including three to cap the first half and another two to open the second -- to shrink Maryland’s lead to 9-7 with 28:39 remaining in the contest.

A determined Maryland attack countered with a 6-0 run to push the Terps' cushion to eight with a 15-7 score with 20:30 remaining. The frantic offensive pace in the first 10 minutes of the second stanza resulted in eight total goals. The Terps picked up scoring from McPartland, Cummings (2), Brooke Griffin, Erin Collins and Taylor Salandra in the period’s high-paced opening timeframe.

Duke would later find its way back on the scoreboard with a pair of free position goals from Kerrin Maurer and Brigid Smith in-and-around the eight-minute mark for a 15-9 score but Maryland once again pulled away with four consecutive goals from Collins, Glaros, Griffin and McPartland for its largest lead of the game at 19-9.

The Blue Devils managed one final goal with three seconds remaining to cap the scoring at 19-10.

In addition to Glaros and Cummings, McPartland was also dynamic in Maryland's attack Saturday, posting seven points on three goals and four assists. Collins recorded a season-high seven draw controls. Abbey Clipp picked up the win in the cage with six saves on the day.

“We did a really good job today on the draw,” head coach Cathy Reese said. “I thought our midfield played well on the draw, in transition and in generating our offense. It’s great to kick off the ACC portion of our schedule with a win.”
