Paced by Eric Law's three goals and two assists, Denver topped Maryland in the first Division I lacrosse game played in Seattle.

Denver lacrosse coach Bill Tierney said after his team's 12-9 upset over Maryland Saturday in Seattle that the score of the exhibition game wouldn't mean much.

Any time a team can knock off an opponent that's played in the national championship game two years in a row, though, has to be worthy of some confidence, if nothing else.

Senior Eric Law led the Pioneers with three goals and two assists, and freshman Gordie Koerber and sophomore Michael Pirone -- both Maryland natives -- added two goals each.

The game was a part of the Seatown Classic held at Starfire Sports Campus in Tukwila, Wash., just outside Seattle. It was the first Division I lacrosse game played in the city.

The Terrapins' Kevin Cooper scored three goals to go along with two assists in the loss.

The Pioneers will take on the Denver Outlaws of Major League Lacrosse in the Fourth Annual Colorado Lacrosse Showcase at 1:30 p.m. MT. Oct. 20.
