Maryland fall sports roundup

A tour around the non-football fall sports at Maryland…

Field hockey

The fourth-ranked Maryland field hockey team topped No. 14 Wake Forest, 4-2, on Saturday, getting goals from freshman Alyssa Parker (who scored twice), sophomore Steffi Schneid and junior Jill Witmer. The Terrapins were without sophomores Maxine Fluharty and Katie Gerzabek and junior Ali McEvoy, who were all competing for the U.S. under-21 team at the Junior Pan American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico. They won bronze in the Pan Am Games and clinched a bid to the 2013 Junior World Cup.

Maryland will be at full strength for Friday evening’s game at No. 7 Virginia (6 p.m.). The Terrapins host Temple on Sunday at 1 p.m.

Men’s soccer

The top-ranked Maryland men’s soccer team remained perfect in ACC play with a 2-0 shutout of Virginia Tech on Friday night. Mikey Ambrose tallied his first college goal and became the 10th Terrapins player to score this season. Maryland then shut out Georgia State, 4-0, on Monday to improve to 7-0-1.

The Terrapins travel to College of Charleston on Saturday at 7 p.m.

Women’s soccer

The Maryland women’s soccer team improved to No. 10 in the Soccer America rankings, and first place in the ACC, with a 2-1 win at No. 13 Wake Forest on Sunday. It was the Terrapins’ first win over the Demon Deacons since 2006. Maryland (7-2-2, 3-0-1) hosts No. 3 Virginia on Thursday night at 7 before traveling to No. 25 Virginia Tech on Sunday at 5.


Junior Mary Cushman tallied a double-double with a match-high 13 kills and 10 digs and sophomore Ashleigh Crutcher finished with 12 kills as the Maryland volleyball team took a straight-sets win at Clemson on Friday. The Terrapins then were shut out by Georgia Tech on Sunday. Maryland (9-5, 1-2) hosts Virginia Tech on Friday at 7 and Virginia on Sunday at 2.

Men’s golf

Sean Bosdosh shot a final-round 71 Tuesday to finish with a 4-under 212 and capture the individual title at the VCU Shootout.
