Maryland drew first blood at the 8:11 mark of the first quarter. Good ball movement lead to Snider getting a good look from the right wing and he made it count by sneaking a shot inside the near pipe. Sophomore Owen Blye then scored back-to-back goals to give the Terps a 3-0 lead with just over 5:00 to go in the first. His first was a great individual effort that saw him convert from the left side of the crease. Blye's second goal came on Maryland's first extra-man opportunity of the game. Senior Grant Catalino laced a pass through the defense to Blye on the right side of the crease and Blye took one-step before scoring on a bounce shot.
