NCAA soccer roundup: Maryland Terrapins, Georgetown Hoyas, Virginia Cavaliers, JMU Dukes, Virginia Tech Hokies

With college soccer’s regular season winding down, the Washington region’s teams were involved in an eventful weekend of matches:

*Despite a red card in the second consecutive match, the third-ranked Maryland men’s team secured an away point with a 1-1 draw with No. 2 North Carolina. The Terrapins (13-1-2) are likely to move into the No. 1 slot, thanks to losses by UNC and top-ranked Connecticut earlier in the week. Maryland, first in the ACC with a 4-1-1 record and 13 points, will close the regular season with matches Friday at Clemson (5-8-0, 2-4-0) and a week from Thursday at home against Wake Forest (7-6-2, 4-3-0).

For much more.....

*Georgetown, ranked 24th, strengthened its NCAA tournament portfolio with a 0-0 draw at Connecticut (13-1-2).

*Virginia’s 0-0 draw at last-place Virginia Tech left the Cavaliers fourth in the ACC.

*James Madison won its third straight and improved to 11-2-1 overall and 7-1-0 in the Colonial Athletic Association with a 1-0 win at Georgia State. The Dukes are tied for first in the CAA with No. 11 Old Dominion, which has won seven in a row and will visit JMU on Wednesday.

*The Virginia Tech women upset eighth-ranked North Carolina, 1-0, for the second time in three years, while No. 15 Maryland continued to struggle in the ACC, losing at No. 6 Duke, 3-1. The Terps will host UNC on Thursday.
