Flat Maryland stops C.W. Post, 9-5

March 22, 1992|By Marc Bouchard | Marc Bouchard,Staff Writer

COLLEGE PARK -- Coming off a loss to No. 5 Towson State last week, Maryland lacrosse coach Dick Edell was looking for his seventh-ranked Terrapins to have an impressive outing against C.W. Post.

Maryland won, 9-5, yesterday, but Edell wasn't impressed.

"There just wasn't a whole lot there that we were really pleased with," Edell said. "We don't demonstrate a sharpness that we're going to need to be in the [NCAA tournament] hunt.

"[The remaining games] worry me," said Edell, whose team faces North Carolina, Virginia, Navy and Johns Hopkins before the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament. "We're going to have to maintain our defensive pressure for 60 minutes, and we're going to have to find a way to score some more goals. It's tough to win games with nine goals."

The Terrapins' overall effort may not have been spectacular, but freshman Robert Chomo's performance was.

Chomo, a second-team member of The Baltimore Sun's 1991 All-Metro team from St. Mary's, replaced Blake Wynot on the starting attack and led Maryland with four assists. Wynot was moved to midfield.

"We thought [the change] was necessary to get a little more direction offensively," said Edell. "Robbie's a young kid and he's got a lot of potential."

Trailing 5-0 at halftime, C.W. Post threatened to make a game of it, scoring two goals in the first 3:14 of the third quarter, but Maryland scored the next three to build an 8-2 lead with 10:49 left in the game.

Dan Reading and Jon Schoenweitz scored two goals each for Maryland. Chris Dail (Bel Air) added a goal and an assist.
