Ermakova, Reyes Secure POW Honors
April 10, 2012
Ermakova had key plays in one of Maryland's biggest wins in program history, a 10-9 triumph over Michigan Saturday to claim the CWPA Western Division title.
She helped thwart a breakaway attempt with just under 1:00 to go with the score tied at 9-all and then set up the game-winner. The sophomore stole the ball in the middle of the pool with 34 seconds left, sent an outlet pass which led to Christine Goetsch's game-winning goal. Ermakova also posted a career-best seven points (four goals/three assists) in Friday's 21-1 win over Salem International.
Reyes was huge for Maryland in the win over the Wolverines, making key defensive plays down the stretch. Reyes, who had eight saves, stopped a potential breakaway on a steal in front of the net with 3:30 left in the game. She also had two blocks off point-blank attempts in the fourth with the game tied at 9-all.
It marked Reyes' third defensive player of the week award this season.
The Terps (17-4) are the top seed in the CWPA Western Division Championship which begins Saturday at Indiana University. They will play with the winner of the Hartwick-Gannon game at 4:30 p.m. Saturday.
