Junior Allison Comito (Glen Head, N.Y.) continued to find the net against the Big Green, slipping it by the Dartmouth defense for three goals on Tuesday. That gives her 22 goals this season, an average of 3.14 gpg. Add in her 8 assists, and she trails Adams by eleven points as the nation's No. 2 scorer. Junior Quinn Carney (Flemington, N.J.) rounds out the Terps' top three scorers, and after her five-goal explosion vs. Dartmouth, she has moved up to a tie for second with Comito at 30 points. Carney is also ranked fourth in assists with 14, just one behind Adams who is in third with 15.
