COLLEGE PARK, Md. — Logan Wisnauskas had five goals and three assists, and Jared Bernhardt collected four goals and two assists as fourth-ranked Maryland held off a late UAlbany run to pull out a 14-13 men’s college lacrosse non-league victory on Saturday at Maryland Stadium.

The Great Danes (2-3) outscored the Terrapins (5-1) 5-1 in the fourth quarter. 

“I am certainly very proud of our effort today; we learned a lot about each other today,” UAlbany head coach Scott Marr said. “Down 8-2, we outscored Maryland 11-6, but unfortunately, we couldn’t pull even in the last seconds. This lesson will hopefully carry us as we continue to grow as a team.”

Tehoka Nanticoke paced the Great Danes with five goals and an assist. Graydon Hogg added four goals and an assist.
The Great Danes open America East play next Saturday at UMass Lowell.
