For the first time since joining the Big Ten, No. 4 Maryland men’s lacrosse has cleaned up all four weekly conference awards.
The Terps are the first team since Ohio State on March 21, 2017, to sweep all four weekly honors in the same week.
Senior attackman Jared Bernhardt earned his second-career Offensive Player of the Week award, junior long stick midfielder Matt Rahill picked up Defensive Player of the Week, sophomore goalie Chris Brandau was named Specialist of the Week and attackman Daniel Maltz received Freshman of the Week honors Tuesday.
In arguably the toughest matchup of Maryland’s early schedule, all four players dominated against No. 6 Penn.
Bernhardt tallied four goals and two assists en route to his fourth consecutive hat trick.
Rahill played a major role in Maryland’s defensive effort, while also scoring his first goal of the season and scooping up two ground balls.
Brandau had himself a career day with 19 saves against Penn — 13 of which were in the second half. The goalie also didn’t allow the Quakers to score for the final 22:58 of the game.
Maltz was arguably the reason Maryland was able to come back, scoring four of his five goals during the team’s 8-0 run in the fourth quarter.

Even with its nine-game win streak, the team isn’t satisfied quite yet.
