[WAKE FOREST-MARYLAND] No. 17 Maryland, which has already beaten North Carolina and tied Duke, beat No. 21 Wake Forest, 2-1, Sunday afternoon at Spry Stadium to take over first place in the ACC. Junior Hayley Brock and senior Becky Kaplan each scored to give them 15 of the Terrapins' 23 goals.

Kaplan's goal was her ninth of the year and fifth game-winner. Brock now has six goals and five in four ACC matches.

"This is a great result for our group," said Maryland coach Jonathan Morgan. "Wake is a phenomenal team and there's no question why they made the College Cup last year. However, our girls were fantastic in their preparation, they were fantastic in their execution, and they earned a fantastic result on the road.

"We are playing anywhere between seven and nine freshmen along with two sophomores a game and we've been forced to grow up fast. I have to credit our leadership group and how great they've been in leading this young team. It's impossible to be good without great team leadership and our leadership has been terrific so far."

Maryland won despite being outshot, 18-5.
