[MARYLAND-CALIFORNIA] No. 3 Maryland showed why it will be a contender for the 2012 national championship with a 6-0 win over No. 22 California. The Terrapins battled through rain to score their highest goal tally in nearly two years. Patrick Mullins had a goal and two assists, and Jordan Cyrus picked up two late goals 75 seconds part.
Mullins set up John Stertzer and Schillo Tshumo for goals sandwiched around his own goal in the 55th minute.

Freshman Tsubasa Endoh scored his first collegiate career goal in the 70th minute and Cyrus finished off the five-goal second half with two goals in the 80th and 81st minutes.

Maryland's six-goal performance was the most since a 7-0 victory over Virginia Tech on Oct. 8, 2010.
"I thought it was a tremendous 90 minutes," Maryland coach Sasho Cirovski said. "That's a very good Cal team and I expect them to be a playoff team this year. The honesty, the work ethic, the attention to detail, and the skill on the ball was just outstanding. The starting group did a great job and when every reserve came in, they kept the level high. It was a fun night."

Maryland outshot, 20-4, for the game.

“Maryland was extremely good tonight in all phases of the game,” Cal head coach Kevin Grimes said. “On games like this, you have to tip your cap to the opponent. We have a huge opportunity in front of us to learn and grow from this road trip. Throughout the totality of the weekend, we had some brilliant play to build upon.”

Sept. 2 in College Park, Md.
Maryland 6 California 0. Goals: Stertzer (Mullins, Endoh) 37, Mullins 56, Tshuma (Mullins, Francois) 65, Endoh (Shinsky, Raley) 70, Cyrus (Pace) 80, Cyrus 81.

    Maryland is the deepest college team I have EVER seen. As usual, the road to the College Cup runs through College Park.
