You’d be hard-pressed to find a grad transfer that’s had more of an impact this year than Justin Tiernan.

The Team 91 2019 Orange alum by way of John Glenn transferred to Michigan for his fifth year, and the Wolverines sure are glad he did. The leading goal scorer in Division I put on a show Saturday against Maryland by tying the game with 2:36 to play and scoring the game-winner with 1:13 to play as the reigning Big Ten champions knocked off the Terps, 12-11.

Tiernan finished with five goals for the Wolverines, his fourth five-goal game of the year. Tiernan, who has scored 37 times this season, also chipped in a ground ball. He has at least a hat trick in eight of nine games this season.
