MOST COMMENTED

[VIRGINIA-MARYLAND MEN] Maryland remained the hottest team in the country, winning its eighth game in a row with a 2-0 win at No. 5 Virginia thanks to goals by Casey Townsend and John Stertzer early in each half.

The Terrapins shut out the Cavs despite playing without starters London Woodberry and Ethan White on the backline.

“That was a complete performance by our team and it was a great win,” Maryland coach Sasho Cirovski said. “We had a couple of injuries during the week that we had to make some adjustments for and we had a few guys really step up. I thought Billy Cortes -- for his first game at right back -- was outstanding and John Stertzer stepping into the attacking midfield role really rose to the occasion. All year we have talked about our depth and tonight was one of the first times we were challenged at the beginning of the game to make some adjustments and I thought we did a great job.”
 
It was the first time Virginia has given up two goals since it was blanked, 2-0, by UConn in the 2008 NCAA Tournament.

“When you get hit like that early on, it really disrupts you and uplifts the other team,” UVa coach George Gelnovatch said. “Give Maryland credit, they get around the ball very well and are very athletic. When they got a goal lead, and then a two-goal lead, it was tough to deal with.”
 
Maryland secured the second seed in the upcoming ACC Tournament with a 6-1-1 record.  The Terps (12-2-1 overall) also will split the regular-season title with North Carolina if the Tar Heels lose to Clemson Friday night.

Virginia fell to 2-3-2 in ACC play but 9-3-3 overall.
