Maryland beats North Carolina -- again

MEN'S NEWS ... A record Ludwig Field crowd of 6,946 fans watched No. 8 Maryland beat No. 2 North Carolina, 1-0, in a rematch of last year's NCAA Division I championship game.

Maryland has now beaten North Carolina four times over the last two seasons -- all by shutouts. UNC had the edge in play, but the Terrapins won on Kevin Tangney's header in the 89th minute. Billy Schuler had a chance to put Carolina ahead, but he missed a penalty kick in the second half.

Tangney, a player who has missed two full seasons due to a pair of ACL tears, has emerged as one of the leaders on a very young Maryland team. "That was one of the best moments of my 17 years here and not because we won the game against a great opponent but in the player that found the way to get the game-winning goal," Maryland coach Sasho Cirovski said. "With all that he has been through, I rarely talk about a single player after a game, but you have a gulp in your throat when he scored that goal and had that celebration because you know what he's gone through. He's made of the best stuff on earth."

* G20 FEVER. Visiting DePaul was not deterred by all kinds of security details in place for the G20 Summit in Pittsburgh to beat host Pitt, 1-0, on Steffen Vroom's goal in Big East action on Friday. "There were roadblocks everywhere, and we had to take a detour to the game," said DePaul coach Craig Blazer. "There were all kinds of policemen and security forces in the streets. Some of the leaders from Germany and their delegation were staying in our hotel. There were SWAT teams in our hotel."
