[DUKE-MARYLAND] No. 4 Duke twice came back from a goal down in the second half to earn a 2-2 tie with No. 17 Maryland on Thursday night at Koskinen Stadium.

Duke coach Robbie Church said he was disappointed with only getting a draw.

"The girls played as hard as we possibly could play," he said. "They were excited and the enthusiasm was fantastic. We just have to be a little bit smarter. As we play hard, we just have to make smart decisions. We had some people standing wide open in front of goal if we just roll the ball to them.”
 
Hayley Brock put Maryland ahead early in the first half with a shot off the right post and past Duke goalkeeper Tara Campbell.

The score remained 1-0 in favor of Maryland until the 54th minute when Laura Weinberg evened the score with her ninth goal of the season.

The Blue Devils piled on the pressure, but Maryland went ahead again when Becky Kaplan scored with her eighth goal of the season in the 73rd minute.

Duke came back again with less than four minutes remaining when junior Mollie Pathman sent a long kick into the box that deflected off Terrapin goalkeeper Rachelle Beanlands and redshirt junior Kim DeCesare was able to finish off her eighth goal of the year.

With the tie, the Blue Devils moved to 7-2-1 overall and 1-1-1 in the ACC, while Maryland is now 6-2-2 overall and 2-0-1 in ACC play.
