Defending champ Terps crush UNC Women

March 10, 1996|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

Kelly Amonte had four goals and four assists yesterday as defending national champion Maryland opened its season with a 14-2 rout of North Carolina before 500 in Chapel Hill, N.C.

It extends the Terps' winning streak to a school-record 18 games and their regular-season unbeaten string to 37.

The Terps outshot the Tar Heels, 30-10, and ran out to a 12-0 lead. North Carolina (1-1) was playing only its second varsity game.

Maryland scored 20 seconds into the game on a goal by Sascha Newmarch. The Terps never looked back, scoring four goals in nine minutes.

North Carolina broke the shutout with 7 1/2 minutes left in the game on a score by Erin McGinnis.

* Loyola 11, Towson State 5: Sophomore Emily Franey scored three goals as Loyola beat Towson State in the opener for both teams at Curley Field.

The game was scheduled to be played at Towson State's Minnegan Stadium, but snow forced it to be moved to Loyola's artificial surface.

Franey scored two goals as the Greyhounds bolted to a 6-0 lead in the first 21 minutes and never were threatened.

Towson State made it more respectable by closing with four straight goals, two by Gretchen Schemberg.
