Overall, it was a very good weekend for Terp fans. There were many key upsets to help Maryland gain some ground in the ACC. Below, I break down each team in action.
- The men’s soccer team defeated Clemson 3-1 to remain undefeated in ACC play (2-0-1). Senior striker Patrick Mullins broke out of his scoring slump and scored two goals to propel the offense in a key victory. The team has a four-game home stand coming up, hosting Old Dominion on Tuesday and ACC foe Pittsburgh on Friday. The 17th ranked Terps look to maintain momentum and once again fight for the ACC regular season title.
- Women’s soccer had a huge win on Sunday, beating third-ranked Wake Forest at home 2-0. Senior Hayley Brock continued her dominating year as she scored the only goal of the game, her eighth of the year. The Terps will likely see a rise in the rankings, despite losing to 23rd ranked Virginia Tech 2-0 on Thursday evening. The team has two big games this week, traveling to Notre Dame and Virginia on Thursday and Sunday respectively.
- Volleyball suffered a tough weekend, losing to 24th ranked Ohio, 10th ranked Michigan, and Marshall. In their first tournament on the road, the Terps looked over-matched. A positive about the losses is that they all came early in the year, giving the team a chance to regroup, fix their mistakes and get better moving forward. The team will begin individual matches this Friday against Georgia Tech at home.
- Field hockey continued to dominate its opponents, defeating 15th-ranked Wake Forest and Michigan by an aggregate of 6-1. Maryland dominated both games as the Lady Terps are continuing to show why they should be the top-ranked team in the country. The team will travel to Chestnut Hill next weekend to take on Boston College and Massachusetts on Friday and Sunday.
