Mid-Week Clash Pits No. 1 Terps Vs. No. 5 Hoyas At Ludwig

April 12, 2000

COLLEGE PARK, Md. - The No. 1 Maryland Terrapins enter their fifth Top 5 test of the year with an outstanding 10-1 record after defeating Brown 18-7 on Tuesday in their first of three games this week. After coming off a huge 13-7 win over then-No. 5 North Carolina over the weekend, Georgetown (8-2) moved up one slot in this week's IWLCA poll to enter Thursday's contest the No. 5 team in the country. That ranking is the Hoyas' highest in program history. The Hoyas are averaging 13.3 goals per game, and are lead by Sheehan Stanwick (30g, 10a) and Erin Elbe (26g, 10a). Bowen Holden is the Hoyas' starting goalie and has a .648 save percentage.

Maryland's three-game stretch culminates Saturday against No. 20 Johns Hopkins (8-2) with the Terps' first television appearance of the year on WMAR-Channel 2 in Baltimore. That game is part of a Maryland/Johns Hopkins doubleheader, which starts at 5:30 p.m. with the women's game and closes with a pivotal men's match-up between head coach Dick Edell's No. 7 men's lacrosse squad (7-2) and the No. 8 Blue Jays (4-3). The women's match-up is only the second ever between Johns Hopkins, who is enjoying its first week in the IWLCA poll this season, and Maryland. The Terps' last meeting with Johns Hopkins was April 28, 1979. Maryland outscored the Blue Jays 17-1.

Georgetown A Familiar Opponent for Terps

Maryland and Georgetown met twice during the Terps' 1999 championship run, both resulting in Terrapin wins. Allison Comito (Glen Head, N.Y.) netted six goals and added three assists to lead the top-ranked Terps to a 21-9 victory against then-No. 8 Georgetown in Washington, D.C. during the regular season. Maryland outscored the Hoyas 9-3 in the second half en route to the 21-9 win, the third consecutive game in which the Terps' scored 21 goals. Maryland goalie Alex Kahoe (Villanova, Pa.) registered 14 saves while allowing nine goals.

Scouting Johns Hopkins

The Saturday match-up between No. 1 Maryland and No. 20 Johns Hopkins will be only the second ever in series history. The Blue Jays are 8-3 overall, and are lead by Jamie Larrimoro (40g, 8a) and Danielle Moschuci (34g, 7a). The only common opponents the Terps share with Hopkins are North Carolina and Duke. The Blue Jays dropped decisions to both ACC powers, losing to North Carolina 14-6 and Duke 16-6.

The Terps' Offensive Numbers

Indisputably the most productive offense in the nation, averaging over 18 goals per game in 2000, Maryland has more than enough offensive weapons to keep any defense wondering. The Terps' offense is averaging an astounding 18.45 gpg through 11 games, a 2.65 goals per game improvement from their nation's-best 1999 average of 15.8 gpg. Some of the Terrapin's weapons include attack Jen Adams (Marino, Australia), who leads the nation in points and goals, as well as Allison Comito and Quinn Carney (Flemington, N.J.), who are both in the Top 20 nationally in points per game. Rounding out the Big Four for the Terps is Christie Jenkins (Media, Pa.) who has turned it on again this year, averaging 4.5 points in the past four games.

Leading Scorer Jen Adams

Maryland's Jen Adams leads the nation in scoring and goals with 77 points on 46 goals and 31 assists. The Australia native is coming off an 9-point effort against Brown on Tuesday, and an 11-point school record-tying outing against Harvard on March 30. She also scored eight-points against then-No. 4 James Madison on April 1. This season, Adams' astounding totals have also been highlighted by an eight-point day against Old Dominion (3/25), an 18-point stretch the week of March 7-12, including a six-goal game against Syracuse (3/12), and an eight-point game against ACC rival Virginia (3/14).

Allison Comito Bringing The Goals

Junior Allison Comito was hot again for the Terps against Brown, scoring four times and adding two assists. Comito is the Terps' second-leading scorer with 34 goals and 17 assists. Her 51points in 2000 are more then halfway to her 1999 total of 81 points. She ranked 11th nationally last week in points per game with 4.50. Her big game this year came on March 12 against Syracuse when she netted six goals and two assists for an eight-point day.

Carney Turning the Assist-Meter

If Jen Adams provides the scoring in general, and Allison Comito is responsible for goals, junior Quinn Carney has been the one to distribute the ball and record the assists for the Terps this season. Carney, who takes the draw for Maryland, has 22 feeds this year and ranks fifth in the nation at 2.00 assists per game. Carney can hit the goal, as well, as demonstrated by her five-goal explosion vs. Dartmouth (3/21) and four goal effort against Brown (4/10). She has 22 assists for the season, an average of two a game, and has a 4.27 ppg average.

Jenkins Turning It On

Christie Jenkins has asserted herself once again this season as an important part of the Terps' offense. The senior tri-captain has gone from a 2.25 ppg average in the first four games to a 4.67 ppg average in the past eight games, including two six-point games against Harvard (3/30) and James Madison (4/1), and two five-point efforts against Virginia (3/14) and Old Dominion (3/25). A 1999 first-team All-American, she is Maryland's fourth-leading scorer this season rounding out the top four on an offense that averages 18.45 goals per game.

Adams' Single-Season Numbers

Junior Jen Adams is looking to make some more noise on the Maryland single-season charts this season, after etching her name at the top of the single-season goals chart last year with 71. Adams also ended last year with 46 assists, marking the second-highest single-season total, two behind Terp legend Kelly Amonte's 1996 total of 48. Her 1999 point-total of 117 was also a Maryland record for the Australia native.

So what does all of this mean? Well, she's poised to do it again. With five games remaining (not counting any postseason or ACC tournament action), Adams has 46 goals (eight away from the No. 10 single-season spot), 31 assists (already No. 8 on the single-season assists chart), and 77 points (just two away from making the single-season points chart again).

Jen Adams' Scoring Streaks

Maryland junior Jen Adams has scored at least one point in her last 42 games. Adams, who has 238 points for her career, began her streak on March 31, 1998, when she scored two goals and added an assist against Temple. The last time she was held scoreless was on March 30, 1998, in the Terps' 16-4 win against Vanderbilt. The Terps' scoring leader again this year, she has scored no less then four points in any one game this year, and is averaging 7.0 ppg.

Adams also has at least one goal in each of the past 22 games.

The Jenkins' Scoring Streak

Maryland tri-captain Christie Jenkins is riding a 44-game scoring streak after the Brown game. The last time the midfielder was held scoreless was on March 31, 1998, against Temple. She has 198 career points, and has moved into eighth on Maryland's career points list.

The Carney Streak Rounds It Out

Terrapin junior Quinn Carney has extended her scoring streak to 39 games after the win over Brown on Tuesday. Her streak began on April 23, 1998, when she totaled one assist in the Terps' 16-7 win at William & Mary. The last time Carney was held scoreless was April 11, 1998, against UNC in the 1998 ACC semifinals.

Maryland in the Polls

This week is the Terps' fifth straight week at the top of the IWLCA poll this year. Maryland has been the No. 1 team in the nation for 15 consecutive polls, dating back to the final rankings of 1998 when the Terps' captured their fourth-straight NCAA championship.

The Terps Vs. Ranked Teams

Adams broke the single-season goals mark last year when she netted 71 in the Terps' 1999 national championship campaign.

Sommar Turns It On

Sommar's seven goals marked a career-high for her as well as a team-high this season for the Terps. She added another two against Brown and has 21 goals and seven assists this season.

Martinez Returns For Terps
