No. 11 Maryland Wins a Pair Saturday
March 3, 2012
ERIE, Pa. - The Maryland Terrapins remained perfect and alone in first place in the CWPA Western Division standings with a pair of convincing wins Saturday.
The 11th-ranked Terrapins (10-3, 4-0) won their fifth-straight game Saturday afternoon with a 19-3 win over Notre Dame (Ohio) in a divisional contest at Gannon's Carneval Athletic Pavilion.
"Notre Dame was a very athletic team, but we did what we needed to do offensively and got good output" head coach Carl Salyer said.
Robinson and Smith also had five steals apiece.
Ermakova's four goals and another strong defensive effort sent Maryland to a dominating 13-3 victory over Gannon Saturday morning in its season-opening game.
"We did what we wanted to do defensively and that fed our offense," Salyer said.
Campbell and Ermakova each had four steals and Rebecca Gerrity chipped in three as the Terps held Gannon (2-7) scoreless in the second half.
Ermakova's second goal of the game in the second quarter gave the Terps a commanding 6-1 lead.
Gannon closed the gap with a pair of goals in the second period, but Maryland extended the lead after halftime with goals by Goetsch, Tobin and Campbell.
Rachel Stein went the distance in net and posted six blocks.
Zoe Respondek had a career-high six points (one goal, five assists) for Maryland which is back in action on March 17 when it plays Fresno Pacific in Davis, Calif.
