Three games into the young season, Penn men’s lacrosse is undefeated no more.

In easily their toughest test thus far, the Red and Blue came up short against No. 11 Maryland on the road Tuesday, losing the contest ,11-7.

The Quakers (2-1) came into the matchup ranked 16th in the nation, but much like their previous game against St. Joseph’s, they fell behind early in the contest. However, unlike their game against their inter-city rivals — one in which the Red and Blue came back to win in dramatic fashion — they were not able to dig themselves out of their early hole against the talented Terps (2-1).

Maryland took a 3-0 lead off of goals from three different scorers in the first quarter, taking advantage of a balanced offensive attack.

The early outburst proved to be enough for the Terps, as they held off various Penn scoring runs throughout the game.

Senior midfielder Joe McCallion led the Red and Blue with four goals, but his individual effort was not enough to overcome Maryland’s superior overall performance.

Penn will look to bounce back when it travels to face Penn State on Saturday.
