DURHAM, N.C. -- Matt Hahn scored three goals to help Maryland to a 12-6 victory over Duke in an Atlantic Coast Conference game yesterday at Duke Lacrosse Stadium. It was the Terps' second straight win over Duke and their eighth in the past 10 meetings.

The Blue Devils (0-1) jumped to a 3-0 lead on goals from Tyler Hardy, Alex Whitten and Scott Diggs. The Terps responded with nine unanswered goals over a span of four quarters, and never looked back.

The Terps (2-0) were outshot 39-30, lost the groundball battle 33-28 and won only six of 22 faceoffs. But Maryland shut out Duke in the second and third quarters.

Terps goalkeeper Brian Dougherty made 14 saves, holding Duke to six goals for the second consecutive year. His counterpart, Duke goalie Joe Kirmser, stopped 13 shots.

Andrew Whipple, Peter Hilgartner and Todd Evans each scored twice for the Terps, who have won six straight regular-season games.

Hardy, a defenseman, led the Blue Devils with two unassisted goals.

Hahn has scored five of the Terps' 24 goals this season.

Maryland, which will attempt to go 3-0 for the second time in four years, will play host to Towson State on Saturday to begin a stretch of three straight home games.
