After four days off, Maryland’s men’s soccer team plays their final nonconference road game of the season, travelling to Bethlehem, Pa. to take on the Lehigh Mountain Hawks.

Lehigh has a good defense, but not much by way of offense. Their leading scorer is junior forward Joe Puleo, who has four goals on the year, but the Mountain Hawks as a whole have only netted nine scores. However, they’ve only let in nine goals as well, leading to their nearly perfectly even 4-4-2 record. Goalie Jonathan Nydell has five shutouts on the season.

The Terps have scored more than three times as many goals as Lehigh this year (28) and has allowed one less (8) on the year. Matt Kassel and Jason Herrick each have five goals for Maryland, while Patrick Mullins and Casey Townsend each have scored four. Zac MacMath has recorded six shots on the year, and has saved 75.8% of shots faced.

Terp Record: 7-2-1 (3-1-1)

Opponent: Lehigh Mountain Hawks (Patriot League) 4-4-2 (1-1-1)
