COLLEGE PARK // No. 4 Maryland scored seven goals in the first quarter and went on to dominate Dartmouth, 14-2, Tuesday afternoon at Ludwig Field.

Maryland (5-1) did not allow a Dartmouth shot until 6:56 in the second quarter and the Big Green did not get a shot on goal until 3:13 during an extra-man opportunity.

Joe Walters scored four goals for the Terps, who led 11-0 at the half.

Dartmouth got on the board in the fourth quarter with a goal from Bread Heritage at the 6:28 mark, but Maryland responded with its first man-down goal of the season on freshman Scott Tompkins' first collegiate goal with an assist by sophomore midfielder Drew Evans.

The Big Green's Brian Koch closed out the scoring with 3:55 remaining with an unassisted goal.

The Terps won 17 of 20 faceoffs, including 12 wins in 13 draws by senior David Tamberrino. Junior Thomas Alford had his best outing of the season facing-off, winning five of seven attempts.

Junior All-America goalie Harry Alford was only forced to make two saves in 30 minutes of action, while sophomore goalie Jason Carter saw the most extensive playing time of his career, making five saves in just over 20 minutes of work.

Maryland returns to action on Saturday with an Atlantic Coast Conference game at North Carolina (2-6) at 1 p.m.
