[NORTH CAROLINA-MARYLAND WOMEN] Maryland made history when it beat North Carolina for the first time in 33 games with a 2-1 win over the Tar Heels thanks to a pair of goals by junior Sade Ayinde.

"It would be an understatement to say that this is a good day to be a Terp," said Maryland coach Brian Pensky. "We're just so elated for our group. The fashion in which this game was won makes it even more special. We've been on the road for five days; we lost a tough game Thursday [2-1 to Wake Forest] and were without two starters today, and we went down 1-0 four minutes into today's game. This just speaks volumes about the character and determination of our team."

Courtney Jones gave the Tar Heels the lead in the 5th minute, but the Tar Heels couldn't put the game away despite a 12-5 edge in shots.

"[Goalie] Yewande [Balogun] and our back line were terrific, our midfield competed their tails off, and the kids up front kept the pressure on UNC's back line," added Pensky. "This was a total team effort, but having said that, Sade Ayinde deserves to enjoy this. She came through for her team today. We're so happy for her!"

Maryland was playing without starters Ashley Grove and Domenica Hodak due to red cards in the Wake Forest game.

With the victory, the Terps improve to 13-2-1 overall on the season and 5-2-1 in the ACC. The five conference wins is the most ever for the Terrapins. UNC falls to 14-2-1 overall and 6-2-0 in the conference.
