No. 4 Terps Soccer Highlight Package vs. West Virginia, Battle Stanford

Maryland got off to a sloppy start Monday in their Ludwig Field opener against No. 17 West Virginia, trailing 1-0 in just the seventh minute. Like their explosive second-half Friday against St. John’s though, the Terps offense came alive in the second half against West Virginia despite trailing 1-0 at halftime. John Stertzer got the rally started with a penalty kick goal in the 54th minute and headed in another for Maryland to take the lead just seven minutes later. Eight minutes after that, a crisp passing attack that brought the ball across the field from Alex Shinsky to Casey Townsend to Widner Saint-Cyr and then finally to Jereme Raley put the icing on the cake. The Terps won the match 3-1 to improve to 2-0-0 on the season.

Listen to the highlight package of the game here:

The Terps take on Stanford tonight in the first two weekend matches, as Maryland also plays Radford Sunday night.

Some notes for tonight’s game:

  • Maryland head coach Sasho Cirovski is 298-123-29 at the helm in College Park. He needs just two wins to reach 300 victories as the Terps’ head coach.
  • All six of Maryland’s goals have come in the second-half. Maryland has outscored its opponents 6-1. John Stertzer leads the Terps in scoring with three goals.

You can listen to the action on WMUC Sports at 7:20. Josh Fendrick and Eric Morrow will be on the call.
