Sophomore midfielder Carla Tagliente scored two goals and senior back Jen Pratt had three assists yesterday to lead Maryland to a 5-0 win over No. 1-ranked North Carolina at the AstroTurf facility.

It was the first win for the Terrapins (8-5, 2-2) over the Tar Heels (9-3, 1-1) since the 1993 NCAA Championship, and their first at home over North Carolina since 1991.

Dina Rizzo opened the scoring six minutes into the game and Keli Smith scored 20 minutes later to give the Terps a 2-0 halftime lead.

Tagliente, who leads the team with eight goals, scored unassisted with 33: 53 left, then made it 4-0 with 9: 23 remaining off assists by Pratt and Molly Kauffman.

Kauffman also scored for Maryland.

The Terps were outshot 14-12, but Angela Platt recorded six saves to register the shutout.
