DURHAM, N.C. -Sophomore Joe Walters had four goals and two assists to lead No. 2 Maryland to a decisive 17-12 win over No. 7 Duke today at Koskinen Stadium.

With the game tied at 4 with 10:54 left in the first half, Maryland ripped off four goals in a row to take a 8-4 halftime lead, which it would never relinquish. The run started off a goal by senior captain Paul Gillette (Severna Park) off a face-off win.

Senior J.R. Bordley (Landon) scored the next two goals to put Maryland up 7-4. Freshman Michael Phipps (Severn) finished the mini-run with his first career goal for the 8-4 halftime lead.

Maryland outscored the Blue Devils, 6-1, in the decisive second quarter after trailing 3-2 at the end of the first.

The game featured 11 different goal scorers for Maryland led by Walters and Bill McGlone, who tallied his first career hat trick along with two assists for a five-point game -- also a new career high.

On defense, Tim McGinnis (Loyola) made 10 saves in the win.

Duke was led by freshman Peter Lamade who had three goals.

With two teams that traditionally play low-scoring defensive games, the 17-12 outcome resulted in the most goals in the series since 1983 when Maryland beat the Blue Devils, 25-7. It was also Maryland's first win at Duke since 1998, when they beat the Devils, 15-9 on Feb. 28.
