COLLEGE PARK, Md. - The Terps scored early and often as they pounded James Madison, 6-0 at a brisk Ludwig Field on Wednesday night. Senior captain Jen Biscoe (Baltimore, Md.) netted her first career multi-goal game -- for her first two goals of the season -- as Maryland moved to 6-3-1 on the season. Senior Katie Ludwig (Mount Laurel, N.J.) also added two goals in the win.
The six-goal outburst is the most scored by the Terps since Oct. 11, 2000, as they overtook Howard 9-0.
Maryland, ranked No. 22 by Soccer America, netted three goals in the first 18 minutes including two in the first 9:15 to mount its biggest offensive attack of the season.
Sophomore Mallory Mahar (Medina, Ohio) opened the scoring with one of her patented header goals for the second game in row. The midfielder converted the header off a corner kick from sophomore Kimmy Francis (Richboro, Pa.), just 3:39 into the game.
It marked the sixth straight game, the Terps scored the game's first goal and the fifth time in those six that the goal came in the first five minutes.
Biscoe finally got off the goal-scoring schneid as she scored her first of the season to make it 2-0, 9:15 into the game. Biscoe converted a pass from junior Lindsay Niehaus (Cincinnati, Ohio), who took a pass from Ludwig as the play developed.
The onslaught continued as sophomore Ali Andrzejewski (Lutherville, Md.) blasted a shot from about 20 yards out over JMU keeper Jessica Hussey. Her second score of the year made it 3-0 just 17:59 into the game.
Biscoe built the lead to 4-0 as she scored with 15 minutes left in regulation. Her shot from about 20 yards out deflected off goalkeeper Amanda Hutchings' hands and into the goal.
Ludwig got into the scoring column as she netted her third goal of the year with 7:28 left in the game. Ludwig took a pass from freshman Liz Foley (Ellicott City, Md.).
The All-ACC selection Ludwig finished the scoring as she was credited with her second of the game as Biscoe's shot deflected off her backside and into the goal with 3:45 left in the action. Simone Dekker (Ringwood, N.J.).
Ludwig now has 44 career points to move into a tie for eighth all-time at Maryland on the all-time scoring chart. She's tied with Audra Weber (1991-94), who also had 44.
Maryland returns to action on Sunday, as they host No. 1 North Carolina, who remain undefeated as they downed ACC rival Duke on Wednesday. The Maryland/North Carolina game kicks off at 1 p.m. and will be televised live on Comcast SportsNet. Maryland posted its first ever positive result against the 17-time national champions last season with a 1-1 tie down in Chapel Hill on Nov. 1, 2002.
