[ACC TOURNAMENT]No. 2 Maryland defeated No. 3 North Carolina, 2-1, on goals from freshmen Dakota Edwards and Schillo Tshuma to win its third ACC title in five seasons Sunday afternoon in front of 9,341 fans at the Maryland SoccerPlex.
 
“I’ll cherish this one forever and I think our alumni and fans will as well,” Terps coach Sasho Cirovski said. “Today we played a great game, our best game of the year.  I thought today we were very sharp in all phases of the game and deserved the victory against one of the great teams in college soccer and certainly the best defensive team we’ve seen in the nation.”

Edwards scored the opening goal in the 11th minute off a corner kick from Dan Metzger for the first goal North Carolina had surrendered since Tshuma tallied the game-winner in overtime in the earlier meeting between the two teams on Oct. 19 in College Park.
 
Tshuma put the Terps on top 2-0 in the 62nd minute with an incredibly angled strike from the near sideline off a throw-in from Mikey Ambrose for his eighth goal.
 
UNC forward Rob Lovejoy sliced the lead in half in the 85th minute, but Carolina could not get the equalizer.
 
Both Tshuma and Edwards were named to the all-tournament team and were joined by 2012 ACC Offensive Player of the Year Patrick Mullins, the Tournament MVP, John Stertzer and London Woodberry.
