Jen Adams had three goals and five assists and became the Terrapins' all-time leading point scorer as top-ranked Maryland (3-0) downed No. 10 Syracuse, 11-7, yesterday in College Park.

Adams had eight points, bringing the total to 133 for her career and breaking the previous mark of 132 set by Kelly Amonte. Adams has 23 points through three games to lead the Terps this season.

Maryland jumped to a 3-0 lead on goals from Adams, Sonia Judd and Allison Comito. Syracuse fought back to tie the score at 4 at the 18:11 mark of the first half.

The Terrapins then went on the deciding run. After Kelly Coppedge and Adams scored to give Maryland a 6-4 lead at halftime, Comito scored two goals in the first 47 seconds of the second half to push the lead to 8-4. Adams scored again a minute later to extend the Maryland advantage to 9-4.

Maryland scored three goals over the final 25 minutes to seal the victory.

Syracuse was led by Carrie Soulls' five goals.

Susquehanna 11, Western Maryland 5: Six first-half goals provided plenty of cushion as Susquehanna (1-1) routed the Green Terror (0-2) in Westminster.

The Crusaders, led by Krista O'Brien's four goals, blew the game wide-open by scoring the first four goals of the second half to take a 10-2 lead.

Western Maryland was led by Amy Bittinger (one goal, one assist).

St. Mary's 14, Virginia Wesleyan 6: Freshman Megan McFall scored five goals and Sue Welsh had three to lead the Seahawks (4-0) over the Lady Marlins (1-1) in Norfolk, Va.

St. Mary's jumped out to a three-goal lead in the first eight minutes on a goal from McFall and back-to-back goals by Welsh. Kate Story registered the next two goals for St. Mary's and McFall scored her third to give the Seahawks a lead that Virginia Wesleyan never threatened.

The Marlins were led by Megan DiCave with three goals and Kate Bozza with two.
