Schwarzmann Nets 7 as No. 4 Maryland Upends No. 2 Syracuse

Two more Orange scores by Tumolo and Treanor knotted the game at six but Schwarzmann and Cummings tallied goals in the three-minute mark to give Maryland an 8-6 advantage at the half.

Maryland set the tone early in the second half, scoring three goals in the opening four minutes of the stanza. Alyssa Murray stopped the run at 26:01 but Maryland outscored Syracuse 4-1 the next 10 minutes for a decisive 15-8 lead.

The Terps continued to meticulously keep Syracuse on its heels, tallying a 4-2 advantage down the stretch, including two goals from Schwarzmann, to clinch the Terps' second win of the year.

"This was a great game for the sport of lacrosse," head coach Cathy Reese said. "I think today you saw two teams competing extremely hard for 60 minutes. I liked the composure and fight our team showed this early in the season and I thought we did a great job of staying aggressive the entire game."

Schwarzmann totaled five goals in the second half alone. The defending Tewaaraton winner is now fifth all-time in goals at Maryland with 180.

Defensively, Iliana Sanza drew a pair of charges and added four ground balls. Kasey Howard had a career-best 11 saves in her second start in the cage.

Sunday's win avenged a one-goal loss at home last season which snapped a 36-game home winning streak.

Maryland opens the home portion of its schedule with a game against Duke next Sunday at 1:00 p.m. at the Field Hockey & Lacrosse Complex.
