Terps start slow, finish strong for 17-6 women’s lacrosse win over High Point

While Sterling was shining, Maryland’s defense made the Panthers nervous for most of the evening. High Point went into the tournament averaging more than 15 goals, but top scorer Abby Hormes, who averaged 4.41 goals per game, only scored in the final minutes. Big Ten Defender of the Year Lizzie Colson, recently named one of five finalists for the Tewaaraton Award, led those defensive efforts, finishing the game with seven strong draw controls.
