COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Maryland freshman forward Taylor Twellman scored his 13th goal of the season, scoring at the 8:36 mark to lead the 16th-ranked Terrapins to a 4-0 win against the Loyola Greyhounds on Tuesday evening at Ludwig Field in front of 495 fans. Twellman drilled a ball past Loyola goalkeeper Colley Bruce on a penalty kick.
The Terps would score twice more before the half off goals by senior forward Pierre Venditti (24:03) and sophomore forward Kirk Miller (40:06). Miller would tap the ball in from 10 yards out over Bruce's head after accepting a soft-touch pass from Twellman.

In goal, Maryland's Christian Lewis tied his season-high save total with seven while Bruce would chart four saves. Tonight's win against Loyola marked Maryland's fifth consecutive win against the Greyhounds, improving its series record against Loyola to 8-4-5.
