COLLEGE PARK, Md. - The Maryland Terrapins (1-0) opened their 1999 season with a convincing 13-5 win over the Denver Pioneers (0-1) at a snowy Byrd Stadium this afternoon. The win improves Marylands all-time record in season openers to an amazing 70-3-1, dating back to 1924.

After falling behind Denver 2-1 with 11:24 left in the second quarter, the Terps went on to score seven consecutive goals over a 16:48 span between the second and third quarters to build an 8-2 lead. Senior defenseman Chris Lamy (Linthicum, Md./North County) scored the go-ahead goal -- the first of his college career -- with 8:10 left in the quarter. In that seven-goal run, sophomore Jon Kemezis (Crofton, Md./DeMatha) scored two goals just seven seconds apart -- at the 7:28 and 7:21 marks of the second quarter.

Maryland picked it up in the fourth quarter, scoring five goals included the second goals of the game for freshman Mike LaMonica (Lutherville, Md./Calvert Hall), junior Brian Zeller (Forest Hill, Md./Loyola) and senior Scott Hochstadt (Columbia, Md./Boys Latin). For the game, Zeller tallied a game-high four points on two goals and two assists.

Denver, which played a strong all-around game held its own in the first half battling the Terps even for the first quarter and trailing just 5-2 at halftime. The Pioneers were led by junior Geoff Bieging (Englewood, Colo./Cherry Creek), who scored twice and Chad Wittman (Colorado Springs, Colo./Vermont Academy). Denver goalie, Brian Berger (Phoenix, Md./Boys Latin), who was making his homecoming, made 14 saves in 60 minutes of action.

Maryland starting goalie Kevin Healy (Manhasset, N.Y./Manhasset) made five saves, while backup Pat McGinnis (Ellicott City, Md./Loyola) came on in relief in the fourth quarter and made four saves.

The Terps continue their schedule as they host the Providence College Friars for the first time in history this Saturday at 1 p.m. in Byrd Stadium.
