NEWTON, Mass. - Sophomore Covie Stanwick scored three times, and Boston College held No. 1/1 Maryland to a season low in goals but lost, 13-5, in front of 308 fans on the Newton Campus Lacrosse Field on Saturday afternoon.

In its ACC home opener, the Eagles (3-4, 1-1 ACC) pulled within 8-4 midway through the second half, but the Terrapins (8-0, 3-0 ACC) closed the game on a 5-1 run.

Junior Moira Barry and freshman Sarah Mannelly each scored for the Eagles, and junior Cali Ceglarski recorded an assist.

For Maryland, Taylor Cummings scored four goals, and Alex Aust had three.

Cummings scored the game's first two goals before Barry connected on a free position shot just under four minutes into the contest. The Terps answered with two more goals to take a 4-1 lead with 17:15 to play in the half.

The Eagles used extended offensive possessions to slow the tempo down, and Stanwick found the back of the net for the first time with 10:52 left in the first. Maryland added two goals - over eight minutes apart - to stake a 6-2 edge.

Inside of the half's last minute Stanwick scored again before the Terps connected on another goal to bring a 7-3 edge into the locker room.

After Maryland scored to open the half, Stanwick tallied her third goal of the game to bring BC within 8-4 with 18:12 left. The Terrapins did not score again until the 12:10 mark but were able to score five of the game's last six goals. Aust scored three times during the stretch.

Mannelly scored BC's only other goal in the second half on a nifty play with 6:15 remaining.

Next, Boston College hosts Boston University on Wednesday at 4 p.m. on the Newton Field.
