Maryland goalkeeper Harry Alford made 20 saves and held North Carolina to a season-low four goals, and the homestanding Terrapins rebounded from their first loss of the season with a 9-4 win against the Tar Heels this afternoon.

Brendan Healy, Joe Walters and Michael Phipps each had a pair of goals to pace the Maryland offense, and Michael Hartofolis added a career-high three assists. The Terps improved to 5-1 with the win.

The Tar Heels (1-5) were held scoreless until five minutes before halftime, but got within 5-4 in the final quarter before Maryland put them away.

Maryland freshman Will Dalton won 6-of-9 faceoffs to help the Terps gain possession and chew up clock in the final quarter. Alford's 20 saves represents his second highest total this season. He stopped a career-high 25 shots against Georgetown in a 13-6 season-opening win.

The Terps wrap up their ACC regular-season schedule next Saturday at Virginia at 1 p.m.
