BALTIMORE, Md. -- Senior attackman Matt Hahn scored four goals to become the all-time career goals scoring leader at Maryland with 141 to lead fifth-seeded Maryland to an 18-10 victory over unseeded Butler in the first round of the NCAA Men's Lacrosse Tournament at Homewood Field on the campus of Johns Hopkins University here this afternoon. The Terps will now play host to fourth-seeded Johns Hopkins at Byrd Stadium in College Park on Sunday May 17 at 4 p.m.
Maryland advances to the quarterfinals of the tournament and moves its record to 12-2 while the loss ends Butler's season with an 11-4 record.
Hahn became Maryland's all-time leading scorer on his first goal of the game with two seconds remaining in the first quarter. He moved past Rob Wurzburger who score 137 goals for the Terps from 1988-91. Hahn added three more goals on the day to give him a total of 144.
Maryland scored five goals in the first quarter and five in the second to take command of the game. The Terps benefited from an 8-1 run midway through the half to turn a 2-2 tied into a 10-3 advantage.
