WLAX: Duke falls to Maryland in NCAA quarters

Posted May 17

— The ninth-ranked Duke women’s lacrosse team had its run in the 2014 NCAA Championship come to an end in the quarterfinals, as the Blue Devils fell to top seed Maryland by a 15-8 score Saturday at the Terrapins’ Field Hockey and Lacrosse Complex.

Head coach Kerstin Kimel’s team concluded the season with a record of 11-8 after making the program’s 10th consecutive appearance in the tournament quarterfinals.

“We never put ourselves in a position to create any good momentum,” Kimel said. “Even after we scored, we didn’t necessarily win the next draw or make a stop defensively. You have to be able to do something to gain momentum ... Maryland was able to create momentum off of saves and stops by their defense and I don’t think that’s something that we did as well today.”

Juniors Kerrin Maurer and Brigid Smith each recorded a hat trick to pace Duke’s attack, while sophomore goalkeeper Kelsey Duryea accounted for eight saves and three caused turnovers. Senior defender Taylor Virden added three ground balls, two caused turnover and one draw control and concluded her collegiate career ranked second all-time at Duke in draw controls with 184 over four seasons.

The Terrapins got on the board first on a tally by Beth Glaros, and after a counter by junior midfielder Maddy Morrissey, added two more for an early 3-1 advantage. Sophomore Maddy Acton found Smith at the 20:17 mark to cut it to one, but Maryland took off on a three-goal run, fueled by Glaros, Kristen Lamon and Taylor Cummings.

Following a save by Duryea, Maurer notched her 56th goal of the season to bring Duke within three at 6-3. Despite being held scoreless by the Blue Devil defense for over 15 minutes, the balanced Terrapin attack tacked on three more markers before the end of the period to take a 9-3 lead at the break.

Maryland utilized another scoring burst at the beginning of the second half, getting two goals from Cummings and one from Kelly McPartland to go up by nine at 12-3. Though the Duke defense struggled to contain the Terrapins on the offensive end, Duryea stepped out of the cage to intercept a couple of Maryland passes. That resulted in a pair of scores by Maurer and Landon, narrowing the gap to 12-5 with 21:43 to play.

Cummings tallied her fifth and McPartland her second to bump the Terrapins’ lead back out to nine. Duryea came up with several one-on-one saves but Maryland continued to fire at the goal, adding another marker by Glaros with just over nine minutes left on the clock.

Maurer and Smith completed hat tricks inside the final seven minutes of regulation, bringing the final score to 15-8.
“Maryland played great today – kudos to them,” Kimel said. “They are an excellent team. We were excited about the opportunity to come and play them. We were happy to be in the tournament. We were happy we had two good wins on the road last weekend against two good opponents.”

For the game, Maryland outshot the Blue Devils 28-20 and held a 16-7 advantage at the draw. The Terrapins also picked up 19 ground balls to 15 by Duke and went 4-of-5 on free position opportunities.

Cummings led all scorers with five goals and Glaros and McPartland registered three each, while Abbey Clipp registered seven saves in goal for Maryland. The Terrapins advance to next weekend’s NCAA semifinals.
