[HARVARD-MARYLAND 0-2] Defending champion Maryland made it three in a row in the 2009 NCAA Men's Tournament with a 2-0 win over Harvard Sunday afternoon before 1,926 fans at Ohiri Field in Cambridge. Casey Townsend and Billy Cortes scored for Terrapins, and goalie Zac MacMath preserved the shutout with a double stop on Crimson star Andre Akpan's penalty kick.

Townsend scored in the 11th minute when chipped a shot with his left foot that sailed over goalie Austin Harm's hands and just underneath the crossbar.

Later in the half, MacMath pulled down Akpan in the box. Akpan took a low, line drive shot to the right side on the penalty kick, but MacMath timed the ball perfectly, making the save. The shot created a long rebound back to Akpan, but his second attempt on net was also turned aside by MacMath. Through the first 45 minutes, Harvard enjoyed a 7-3 advantage in shots.

The Terrapins increased their lead when Cortes placed a shot inside the far post from 30 yards out on the left side at 77:22.

"It was muddy, the winds were strong, and we faced a very talented and well-coached Harvard team today," Maryland coach Sasho Cirovski said. "I'm very proud of our team ... I thought our preparation was outstanding and that we had a strong sense of confidence."
