?This is an exciting time of year,? head coach Cathy Reese said. ?This is what we work all season for, is to put ourselves in a position to have the opportunity to compete in the NCAA tournament. Today?s game was awesome. I thought our girls played really hard across the field.?

The team's 18 goals were the Terps' most in an outing this season. The Minutewomen came into Sunday's game with the No. 2 defense in the nation, holding opponents to 5.45 goals per game.

Zoe Stukenberg and Taylor Cummings each recorded hat tricks while Mattie Meredith scored twice. Brooke Griffin, Erin Collins and Taylor Hensh each tallied one goal.

The Terps will face eighth-seeded Northwestern in the NCAA quarterfinals Sunday, May 17 at noon. Tickets can be purchased here.
