[ROUNDUP: Round of 16]ACC champion Maryland showed off its firepower with a 5-1 win over Coastal Carolina in the NCAA Division I round of 16. Connor Brandt continued his tear with two more goals for San Diego in its 2-1 win over Tulsa. Big East teams Connecticut, Louisville and Georgetown also advanced. For more on the round of 16 ...

MARYLAND- COASTAL CAROLINA. Sunny Jane scored two goals and notched an assist as Maryland moved into the NCAA quarterfinals for the fourth time in five seasons with a 5-1 rout of Coastal Carolina.

Patrick Mullins, Mikias Eticha and Jereme Raley also scored for the ACC champion Terrapins (19-1-2).

After Jane put Maryland ahead, Jamaican Ashton Bennett had temporarily evened the score with his 16th goal of the season in the 21st minute.

"I'm very proud of our guys. I thought defensively we did a great job," Maryland coach Sasho Cirovskisaid. "Although this was two great attacking teams, I thought the team that was going to win was the one that was better defensively, and I thought our guys did a great job in neutralizing some of the great individual players that Coastal has.

CONNECTICUT-NEW MEXICO.Nicholas Zuniga picked the right time to score the first goal of his collegiate career as the freshman buried the golden goal in the 105th minute to lead Connecticut past New Mexico, 2-1, in front of 4,315 fans at Morrone Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
 
Zuniga took a through ball from Carlos Alvarez at the top of the box and beat UNM keeperVictor Rodriguez into the lower left corner for the winner.

UConn trailed for just the fifth time this season when Devon Sandoval put the Lobos ahead in the 32nd minute.

Mamadou Diouf had equalized for UConn in the 76th minute with his 15th goal of the year.

“There are years where we’ve played teams off the field and we went home,” said UConn coach Ray Reid.  “I’m tired of reading on Monday morning that it’s a strange game and that it’s not a fair game with us being on the wrong end of it.  This is what it’s about right now.  I got a text from a fellow coach that just said, ‘survive and advance’.  That’s what it’s about.”

TULSA-SAN DIEGO.Connor Brandt, who scored the game-winner in San Diego's 2-1 double overtime victory at Cal State Northridge and followed that up by notching a goal and two assists in the 5-2 win at UCLA, scored both goals to lead the Toreros to a 2-1 comeback win at Tulsa.

Freshman Cristian Mata tallied his 14th goal of the season on a pass from his brother, Omar Mata, to give TU an early lead, but Brandt evened the score in the 63rd minute and then recorded the go-ahead goal in the 68th minute as he chipped the ball over goalkeeper Mark Pais’ head from 25 yards out.

LOUISVILLE-NORTHWESTERN.Louisville used a late own goal to defeat Northwestern, 2-1, and move into the NCAA Division I quarterfinals.

The first two goals came in the first five minutes -- freshmen Marlon Hairston scored for the Cardinals, and Jarrett Baughman equalized for Northwestern with his first goal of the season -- and the game remained tied until the 86th minute when Dylan Mares' shot went wide of goalie Tyler Miller but deflected off a Wildcat defender into the goal.

GEORGETOWN-SYRACUSE.Georgetown, which had never won a shootout in three attempts, defeated Big East rival Syracuse, 4-2, on penalty kicks after their game ended in a 1-1 tie to advance to the NCAA Division I quarterfinals for the first time.

Syracuse, which had never advanced to the final 16, open the scoring in the 29th minute when Jordan Valeredirected a long free kick from Jordan Murrell into the goal. Freshman forward Brandon Allenscored the tying goal in the 85th minute with his 15th goal for the Hoyas.

    Has any program been more consistently excellent than Maryland over the past decade? Maryland plays attractive attacking soccer and advances players to higher ranks. Kudos to Cirovski!
