[COLLEGE MEN: Weekend]Maryland's early-season troubles continued as it blew a 2-0 lead against visiting VCU with 13 minutes to play Sunday and lost, 3-2, for its first regular-season defeat at home since the 2010 season.

The Rams erased the 2-0 deficit with a pair of goals from Jose Maneland Kharlton Belmar55 seconds apart late in the second half before sophomore Devon Fisherscored the game-winner in the 87th minute. Maryland has given up 10 goals in four games.

“It was a very disappointing result,” Terrapins coach Sasho Cirovski said. “When you have a two-goal lead with 12 or 13 minutes left at home, you need to close it out.  We didn’t do a great job of that obviously. We didn’t show enough composure in key moments and it wasn’t just the young guys, it was everyone. It was a total team letdown against a good team.”

Maryland (1-2-1) started four freshmen: U.S. U-20 Zack Steffen in goal and Alex Crognale, Sui Dainkeh and Chris Odoi-Atsem on the backline.

The loss came two days after Maryland opened ACC play with a 3-1 win over Duke before a Ludwig Field record crowd of 8,397.

HOOSIERS LOSE LOSE AGAIN.Defending champion Indiana lost for the third straight game in overtime when it fell to West Virginia, 5-4, on Sunday.

Ryan Cain hit a golazo with a left-footed shot from 25 yards in the 103rd minute to decide the game. The Mountaineers led 3-1 and 4-3 but blew their lead for a second time whenNikita Kotlov scored with seven minutes left in regulation to knot it at 4-4.

Andy Bevin led West Virginia with two goals. Jacob Bushue had a goal and two assists for IU.

IRISH DEBUT IN ACC. No. 5 Notre Dame made its ACC debut with a 1-1 tie against No. 3 North Carolina.

Leon Brown tied the game in the 79th minute for the Irish, who outshot UNC, 21-12, but were hurt again by some poor finishing.
 
“It was a great game, but it was disappointing that we didn’t win,” Notre Dame coach Bobby Clarksaid. “North Carolina is a very good team. There were chances for us to score and it was the same situation as last week against UCLA [a 0-0 tie]. You have to win these games.”
