Former Terps Help Team USA Win Bowhunter Cup

SYRACUSE, N.Y. - Former University of Maryland men's lacrosse All-Americans Bill McGlone and Joe Walters helped Team USA win the inaugural Bowhunter Cup, 13-11, over the Iroquois Nationals Saturday night in Syracuse.

McGlone, who was a two-time first team All-America midfielder for the Terps, scored three goals in the win, including the game-winner on a jumping shot on the crease with 9:20 left in the fourth quarter.

The Nationals jumped out to an early 4-0 lead before the U.S. team got two on the board before the end of the first. The second quarter was a back-and-forth struggle and the game went to the half tied at 6-6.

The two squads traded goals to start the third quarter when McGlone scored his first of the night, giving Team USA its first lead of the game, 8-7, at the 2:40 mark of the third. He added his second of the night with 1:16 left in the third, converting on a fast break opportunity to make it a 9-7 game.

The exhibition game was a tune-up for both squads heading into the third World Indoor Lacrosse Championships next May in the Czech Republic.
