Maryland slumps to early exit

[ACC] Maryland's troubles continued as the No. 5 Terrapins fell to Boston College, 2-1, in the quarterfinals of the ACC Tournament Tuesday at Ludwig Field. The seventh-seeded Eagles got early goals from Diego Medina-Mendez and Charlie Rugg and held off the Terrapins, who are winless for four games in a row for the first time since 2004. For more on the ACC quarterfinals ...

A defensive lapse by the Terrapin backline in the 13th minute allowed Rugg to collect the ball in the box. He hit the post, but Medina-Mendez was there to score on the follow-up.
Four minutes later, Rugg beat a Terp defender and then Maryland goalkeeper Will Swaim one-on-one.
Maryland's only goal came in the second half when Casey Townsend flicked in a Jereme Raley cross for 13th goal of the year and his first in a month.
"I'm extremely disappointed with tonight's result," said Terps coach Sasho Cirovski. "We didn't have a great first half. Boston College is an excellent counterattacking team and they got us on two counters. We were chasing the game in the second half and had a lot of opportunities."

Elsewhere ...

-- Virginia defeated Wake Forest, 4-3, on Brian Span's second goal of the game with 20 seconds left in overtime. Hunter Jumper added a goal and two assists for the Cavaliers. Luca Gimenez had two goals for Wake to erase a 3-1 UVa lead in the last 11 minutes of regulation.

-- North Carolina scored four goals in the opening 50 minutes en route to a 4-0 win over N.C. State. Jordan Gafa, Matt Hedges, Mikey Lopez and Carlos McCrary scored for the Tar Heels.

-- Duke beat Clemson, 5-4, in a shootout after their game ended 0-0. In the decisive sixth round, Clemson keeper Cody Mizell hit the post on his PK attempt.
