A weekly roundup of the non-football fall sports at Maryland.
Patrick Mullins scored twice, giving him an ACC-best 28 points on the season, as the top-ranked Maryland men’s soccer team defeated Lehigh, 2-1, at Ludwig Field on Tuesday night. The win was the Terrapins’ 13th straight and matched their best start in program history (14-0-1).
Four days earlier, Schillo Tshuma scored in the 99th minute to give Maryland a 1-0 win over No. 2 North Carolina in front of 7,340 in College Park, the second-largest crowd in program history.
Senior midfielder John Stertzer, who has five goals and four assists while taking on a larger defensive role for Maryland this season, has been named Terp of the Week by the athletic department.
The Terrapins have two regular season games left, their home finale against Clemson on Saturday at 7 p.m. and a road game at No. 15 Wake Forest on Nov. 1 at 7 (which will be aired on ESPN3).
The seventh-ranked Maryland women’s soccer team, which closed its regular season with a 1-0 loss to top-ranked Florida State on Sunday, is expected to host an ACC tournament quarterfinal on Sunday afternoon. ACC play wraps up Thursday, and the Terrapins (11-5-2, 6-3-1) are expected to be one of the tournament’s top four seeds.
The sixth-ranked Terrapins rebounded from a 4-3 overtime loss to top-ranked North Carolina on Saturday with a 3-0 win over American on Monday. Jill Witmer, Janessa Pope and Steffi Schneid all scored off penalty corners in the second half for Maryland (13-4), which closes the regular season at home with a Senior Night matchup against Rutgers on Friday at 7 p.m. The Terrapins’ eight seniors have won two ACC titles and made three appearances in the NCAA championship game, winning two national titles.
