Cal takes down both Maryland and Georgetown

[COLLEGE MEN: Weekend] Unranked California followed up on its 2-0 win over then-No. 3 Georgetown with a 3-2 win over then-No. 1 Maryland on Alec Sundly's golden goal. Twice the Golden Bears went ahead and twice the Terrapins came back to tie the score before Cal won.

Steve Birnbaum put Cal ahead in the 14th minute with a header off a Seth Casiple corner kick, but Maryland equalized 72 seconds after the start of the second half when Schillo Tshuma scored on a feed from Patrick Mullins.
 
Cal went ahead again in the 51st minute on a goal by Stefano Bonomo, but Jake Pace sent the match to overtime with a goal in the 79th minute.

“It was a great game by two evenly matched teams,” Cal head coach Kevin Grimes said. “Both teams left everything on the field. Even though we gave up two leads, I think we were absolutely resilient in coming back in overtime and finding a way to make it happen.”

The Terrapins, who tied Stanford, 3-3, thanks to Pace's late goal in regulation on Friday, gave up six goals on their two stops in the Bay Area.

On Sunday, Maryland started five freshmen: U.S. U-20 Zack Steffen in goal and Alex Crognale, Michael Sauers, Sui Dainkeh and Chris Odoi-Atsem on the backline.
 
Freshman Watch ...

-- Thales Moreno scored in the 102nd minute to give Clemson a 2-1 overtime win Monday night over South Carolina before 5,585 fans at Riggs Field.

IRISH REPEAT. Senior Leon Brown scored twice in less than 20 minutes to start the game and match his career total, leading Notre Dame to a 2-1 win over SMU that was good enough to capture the adidas/IU Credit Union Classic for the second straight year. A record crowd of 7,720 at Armstrong Stadium watched Victor Chavez score 49 seconds into the first overtime and give UCLA a 1-0 win over Indiana, the defending national champion.

The Irish and Bruins both finished 1-0-1, but Notre Dame won on the tiebreaker of goals scored.
 
“We played very well in the first half and could have been up by more,” Notre Dame head coach Bobby Clark said. “Leon scored two very good goals, but we also missed some chances. His first goal was set up by a nice run from Alex Priede. Patrick Hodan sent him a nice cross that he one-touched for the second goal.”

UCLA prevailed despite playing a man up for the last 15 minutes of play. IU had had a 9-3 shot advantage in the second half and was awarded a penalty kick in the 76th minute when Joe Sofia took out Tommy Thompson in the box, resulting in a red card for Sofia. Dylan Mares took the PK attempt for the Hoosiers but his shot was saved by  former U.S. U-17 keeper Earl Edwards as he dove to his right.

Goalfest ...

FIU rallied from a goal down to score three goals in the final six minutes of the first half and went on to win, 5-3, at San Diego State. The Panthers got goals from Josue Espana, Gonzalo Frechilla, Quentin Albrecht, Sean McFarlane and Luis Betancur. Abraham Villon led the Aztecs with two goals.

FRENCH CONNECTION II. Frenchman Goffin Boyoko made it three goals in two games with a first-half header to lead UC Santa Barbara to a 1-0 win over UIC, giving the Gauchos two-for-two on their Chicago road trip after Friday night's victory over Northwestern.
