T.J. Durnam started the scoring at 13:32 after he converted a Craig Schubert
feed to put Duke up 1-0. Maryland's Brian Zeller answered when he beat
Breslin over his right shoulder from twelve yards out. Chris Malone then put the
Terps on top when he pulled a spin move and shot as he turned, 2-1. Mike
Morsell made it 3-1 when he converted a Mike Mollot pass. That's how the
Terrence Keaney scored a sensational goal to bring his team within one in the
second: while on his knees and being mugged by two Maryland defenders, he
managed to get off a one handed fling that beat McGinnis (the fantasy league king) and got Duke within one at 3-2. Duke then tied
it up with a great goal by T.J. Durnan -- while off to McGinnis' right, down
low, he looked like he was going to pass up high. Instead he turned and
burned one in the upper right.
The second half started out even slower than the first. Maryland finally
broke the tie when Matt Urlock ripped one that trickled through the compacted
Breslin, 4-3. That was the only scoring in that quarter due largely to
outstanding goaltending on both sides.
In the fourth things opened up a bit. Maryland's Mike Lamonica made it 5-3
before Nick Hartofilis scored for Duke with one of his canons. He can bring
it full tilt with either hand. The teams traded goals the rest of the way
until it was 7-6. With a minute and thirteen seconds left Chris Hartofilis,
Duke middie, clotheslined Mike Mollot, leaving his team down for 30 secs.
Maryland ran out the clock and with it the game. Next up for the Terps is UVA on Sunday for the ACC title.
Side note: Duke's players are so big they look like they could make up a
decent Ivy League football team.
