Records have been falling regularly at No. 17 Salisbury State (8-2) this season.

Jen Mezzadra (Parkville) set a single-game mark for points and Amanda Moculski (C. Milton Wright) set one for assists.

Mezzadra had 11 points -- 10 goals and an assist -- in a 20-4 victory over Frostburg State on Saturday, breaking the record of 10 that had stood since 1993. Ten goals tied the single-game record.

The sophomore has 40 goals this season, becoming only the eighth player in Sea Gulls history to score 40 or more in one season. She ranks second in the Capital Athletic Conference, averaging 4.22 goals a game.

Moculski shattered the team record for assists when she contributed eight to a 21-2 win over Catholic on March 30. The previous record was five, shared by three players including Moculski. With 23 assists, Moculski is gaining on the school single-season record of 33.

A 14-12 victory over No. 5 St. Mary's, fueled by six goals and two assists from Annie Sappington (C. Milton Wright), could move the Sea Gulls even higher in next week's Division III rankings.

Century club

UMBC's Debbie Krastel (Institute of Notre Dame) scored her 100th career goal in Sunday's 16-11 win over Wagner, becoming the ninth player in Retrievers history to hit the century mark.

Krastel has 105 goals and 13 assists. With three more goals in Wednesday's 15-14 victory over Johns Hopkins, she cracked the the Retrievers' all-time top 10 for points.

Krastel and the Retrievers (7-5) go after a second straight Northeast Conference regular-season championship this weekend. A win over Mount St. Mary's tomorrow would give them a sweep of the conference for a second straight year.

Marooning foes

Roanoke's defense, led by Erin Brooks (Towson), Sarah Tengwell (St. Mary's) and Maura Hilgartner (Mercy), set a school record last week for fewest goals allowed in consecutive games. They held Bridgewater and Sweet Briar to one goal each in a pair of routs. The previous record was three.

Through the end of last week, the Maroons (9-3) allowed just 7.4 goals a game.

Terps power

Maryland's attack is on pace to become the most potent in school history. Rolling up 212 goals (16.3 a game) in their first 13 games, the No. 1 Terrapins have scored more goals than ever at this point in the season.

At this rate, they could break school records for goals scored (286, set in 1998) and scoring average (14.4 goals a game, set in 1996).

Five different players have contributed game-high numbers for the Terps this season -- Jen Adams (43 goals, 28 assists), Christie Jenkins (32, 21), Quinn Carney (34, 13), Alison Comito (29, 19) and Kristin Sommar (28, 14).
