Top-Ranked Maryland Hands Hofstra First Loss of the Season

Maryland tallied the first three goals of the contest before Riemer found the back of the net for the Pride with 24:54 left in the first stanza to cut the deficit to 3-1.

After the Terps pushed the lead back to 4-1, freshman attack Emily Considine and Riemer scored back-to-back goals as Hofstra closed the gap to one, 4-3, just under seven minutes into the contest.

After a first 15-minutes where both teams had strong showings offensively, it was the defense for both teams that stood tall the remainder of the opening stanza. Over the final 16 minutes of the first half, each team managed just one goal as Iannetta scored the Pride, while Aust scored for Maryland, giving them an 8-4 lead at the break.

Maryland would score three of the first four goals of the second half to take a commanding 11-5 lead following a goal from Kristen Lamon with 23:10 left in regulation.

Hofstra gradually cut into the deficit and over the final 10-plus minutes of the game held the Terps to just one goal, while outscoring them 4-1.

Sophomore goalie Kelsey Gregerson posted 10 saves in net for Hofstra, while Kasey Howard notched 12 saves for Maryland.

Considine finished with two points for the Pride on a goal and an assist, while junior defender Jamie D'Arco led the Pride with three ground balls.

Hofstra is next in action on Saturday, March 9, when it hosts Yale at 1:00 p.m.
