In assessing both squads, Maryland’s dominance was at the X and on the defensive end, as the Terps pushed the Colonial shorts ticks all over the field. However GWU is a much improved squad and features several dynamic players. With a roster of just 22 at game time, it was evident that the Colonials were missing several key players, and both squads are hopeful this series will continue in the future.
On offense the Terps were lead by some strong midfield play, as 3 of the top Maryland scores came from the middies. Garret Krug lead all Terrapins with 3 goals, while Sean Escalante and Jake Friedman netted 2 goals each.
George Washington will continue to challenge the top local NCLL teams as they take on Towson on Sunday.
Maryland continued it’s winning ways with a 10-5 victory over the Blarney Lacrosse Club the following evening. Blarney, a local Maryland Masters Club Team, is comprised of several ex-Terp players, including several who played for the ’98 Maryland squad that went undefeated and captioned the NCLL Championship.
The Terps will host Delaware Club on 3/10 in College Park.
