Tale of two halves at College Park

[MARYLAND-STANFORD] Goalkeeper Yewande Balogun made 11 saves to help No. 4 Maryland hold off top-ranked Stanford in their showdown at Ludwig Field that ended in a 0-0 tie on Friday night.

"Tonight was a tale of two halves," said Maryland coach Brian Pensky. "Stanford is a terrific team and a terrific program and I think we were a little passive at the start. Gradually, through the first half and into the second we started to realize we could play with them."

The Cardinal forced three strong saves from Balogun in the first 10 minutes and held the Terrapins without a shot for the first 19. But Maryland rallied with some strong chances of its own in the 110-minute stalemate.

The Terps had an 11-5 advantage in shots in the second half, but like Balogun in the first half, Stanford keeper Emily Oliver was up to the challenge, making four of her seven saves in the second 45 minutes of the game.

Stanford was without two injured stars, defender Rachel Quon and midfielder Mariah Nogueira. In their place, Annie Case and Alex Doll -- two Washington area products playing in front of family and friends -- started for the first time this season.
