1. Defending champion Maryland looks exquisite

Defending men's champion Maryland continues to impress.

The No. 5 Terrapins earned their third shutout in a row by defeating Penn State, 2-0, on Wednesday night before 2,323 fans at Ludwig Field. Maryland got goals from sophomore Graham Zusi and freshman Jason Herrick -- the team-leading fifth goal of the season for both players.

Both goals were beauties. In the 4th minute, Zusi blasted a shot from 25 yards out that nailed the side netting. Late in the first half, Herrick cut to the middle of the field, found open space and put a shot past Penn State keeper Conrad Taylor for the 2-0 cushion.

Maryland coach Sasho Cirovski liked the Terp effort in both halves.

“In the second half, our defending was exquisite,” Cirovski said. “[Goalkeeper] Chris Seitz came up big on a couple of occasions which he needed to do and we scored two great goals. When you do that, you win games.”

  • Marcus Tracy's goal in the 89th minute gave No. 6 Wake Forest a 1-0 victory at Davidson. The home team's best chance came in the 81st minute when Tom Lavan’s blast was tipped by Wake Forest keeper Brian Edwards and off the crossbar. Four minutes later, Davidson’s Ryan Adeleye was booked with a second yellow card and sent off.

  • No. 20 Indiana got goals from Brad Ring in the 18th minute and Darren Yeagle in the 75th minute to beat No. 12 Akron in front of 1,623 fans. The loss snapped the Zips' six-game wining streak under first-year coach Caleb Porter, who was previously an assistant at Indiana. "I think we came out a little flat, and then came the early goal," said Porter. "You can't make that kind of mistake against a team like Indiana."

  • No. 22 Notre Dame kicked off a three-game homestand with a 0-0 tie against Northern Illinois.  Joseph Lapira had the best chance for the Irish when he sent a shot from 16 yards off the crossbar with less than five minutes remaining in regulation.

  • Sophomore Geoff Fallon's first goal of his college career was all No. 23 Northwestern needed as the Wildcats improved to 7-1-0 with a 1-0 victory over DePaul. Northwestern, winner of five straight games, is off to its best start in its history.

  • Giovanni Destasio's goal with 11 minutes remaining to give visiting Iona a 1-1 tie with No. 24 Fordham. With the tie, the Rams remain unbeaten at 5-0-2.
