Terrapin seniors keep streak intact

[MARYLAND-LOUISVILLE] Maryland, the top seed remaining in the NCAA Men's Tournament, advanced to semifinals for the 12th time with a 3-1 victory over Louisville on goals by London Woodberry, Jake Pace and Patrick Mullins. The win sets up a D.C. derby against Georgetown Friday in Hoover, Ala.

"We played a great game against one of the great teams in college soccer -- against one of the most well-coached, skillful and determined teams in the country," Maryland coach Sasho Cirovski said. "This game had a lot of intrigue to it and our team came out with a hunger, a tenacity, a determination and a skill set that carried us through. I am delighted our seniors will have a chance to experience the College Cup. Every player that came here since 1994 has had a chance to play in the College Cup, and this set of seniors was not going to let that pass us by. They worked their butts off."
Maryland set the tone when freshman Schillo Tshuma hit a bicycle kick that Louisville keeper Mike Mauro punched over the bar after 30 seconds.
The Terrapins went ahead in the 34th minute when Woodberry scored his third goal of the season off a cross from Taylor Kemp.
Zach Foxhoven, a transfer from UCLA,evened the score six minutes later on a pass from sophomore Dylan Mares.
Maryland took the lead with 40 seconds remaining before halftime on Pace's header off a Dakota Edwards cross into the far left corner.

The Terrapins dominated the game with a 16-5 edge in shots but did not get the third goal until he 68th minute when Mullins knocked in his team-leading 16th goal of the season off his own rebound.

"Give a lot of credit to Maryland,” said Louisville coach Ken Lolla. “They're obviously a very good team. Their record shows that they're having a great year. From our perspective, it's tough to be disappointed because we didn't play well. We probably had our worst game of the year and really didn't show from a standpoint of pressure and keeping the ball in play, Louisville was light tonight."
