PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Eight different players notched goals as the fourth-ranked Maryland Terrapins rolled past Brown, 21-5, Saturday afternoon in Providence. The Terps were paced by Krista Pellizzi's five goals and three assists.
Delia Cox and Kelly Kasper each added five points, and Katie Doolittle netted four goals for Maryland. The Maryland defense caused seven of Brown's 21 turnovers, with two each coming from Martha Raver and Lauren Cohen.
"I'm proud of the way responded after a tough loss earlier this week," head coach Cindy Timchal said. "The players really showed focus to get us this kind of win."
The Terps (4-3) raced out of the gates with goals in the game's first minute from Pellizzi and Katie Princiotto. Maryland continued to pour it on notching five more goals to take a commanding 7-0 lead with 22:53 left in the first half. Brown got on the board on a free-position shot from Amie Biros at 21:04, but Cox added a goal just 16 seconds later and Pellizzi scored her second of the game at 17:27 to take a 9-1 lead.
After another Brown (2-1) goal midway through the first, the Terps closed the half with five more scores to go up 14-2 at the half. The Terps dominated possession, winning 13 of the 17 draws and firing 28 shots.
Maryland refused to let up in the second half as Lauren Cohen pulled down the draw and Pellizzi found Kate McWilliams for a goal just 50 seconds into the half. Pellizzi notched another assist on a Doolitle goal in the 36th minute as the Terrapin lead swelled to 14 goals.
Kasper and Doolittle each went on to score a pair of second half goals for Maryland, and Cox and Pellizzi netted the others for the Terps. Maryland continued its control of possession winning eight of 11 draws in the half, and winning 21 in the game.
Maryland will be back in action at home next week for a non-conference matchup against Old Dominion.
