Maryland (men): The top-ranked Terrapins (8-0-1) scored at least three goals for the seventh time but showed defensive cracks in a 3-2 comeback victory at College of Charleston (4-6-0). Senior center back London Woodberry‘s second goal of the match broke a tie in the 84th minute. On Friday Maryland will resume ACC play at home against Virginia (5-4-1), a young squad that is in danger of missing the NCAA tournament for the first time since 1979. Fox Soccer will provide live coverage.

Georgetown (men): The 11th-ranked Hoyas (10-0-1) continued the best start in program history with a 3-1 victory at Pittsburgh, setting up a Big East — and national — showdown against No. 2 Connecticut (9-0-1) at 3 p.m. Wednesday at GU’s North Kehoe Field. Freshman Brandon Allen scored twice to increase his season total to eight.

Maryland (women): Despite a 1-0 loss at Virginia Tech, the No. 10 Terrapins (8-3-2) remained atop the ACC standings heading into the final three weeks of the regular season. Senior Becky Kaplan and junior Haley Brock have combined for 15 goals and nine assists this year.

Virginia (women): Makenzy Doniak scored in the 88th minute as the third-ranked Cavaliers (10-2-1) rebounded from a loss at Maryland with a 1-0 victory over No. 5 Duke. Virginia is third in the ACC behind Maryland and defending league champion Florida State.

Old Dominion (men): The 12th-ranked Monarchs edged George Mason at home, 3-2, to improve to 7-1-0 ahead of Wednesday’s visit from CAA rival James Madison.

Georgetown (women): Sophomore midfielder Daphne Corboz had five goals, including a hat trick in the first half, and set a Big East record with 11 points as the 11th-ranked Hoyas (11-1-1, 5-0-0 in the Big East) crushed Pittsburgh, 8-0. Corboz scored in the second, third, 32nd, 48th and 70th minutes. She also had a first-half assist.

Virginia Tech (women): Katie DeTuro‘s goal late in the first half helped the No. 25 Hokies (10-2-0) snap a two-game skid and defeat Maryland, 1-0, in Blacksburg on Sunday.

Navy (women): The Midshipmen’s 5-0 victory at Mount St. Mary’s extended the nation’s longest winning streak to 13. Navy (13-1-0) has not lost since the season opener against Maryland.

George Mason (men): Sophomore Timi Mulgrew increased his season total to seven goals in nine matches with a brace at Old Dominion, but the Patriots (7-2-0) dropped their second game in three outings.

Navy (men): A crowd of 3,672 at the Philadelphia Union’s PPL Park watched the Midshipmen (5-2-2) draw with rival Army, 1-1. Navy’s six-game unbeaten streak is the longest in 11 years.

Others of note: The Virginia Commonwealth men are 4-1-3 heading into their first Atlantic 10 season after moving from the CAA. … The William & Mary women are 9-1-0 since losing their first two games.

The Howard Bison watch: Men’s and women’s teams are a combined 0-20-2.
