Maryland bids adieu with share of regular-season title
[ACC: Men] Senior Patrick Mullins scored the golden goal -- his 14th goal of the season -- to lead No. 5 Maryland to a 2-1
victory at Virginia Tech Friday night. The win clinched a share of the ACC regular-season championship -- their 24th league title -- for the Terps, who will move to the Big Ten next season.
They'll be seeded as the No. 1 team ahead of Notre Dame on the tiebreaker for the ACC Tournament that begins Tuesday.
Tshuma’s early goal stood up for most of regulation before Alessandro Mion equalized late for the Hokies.
“To secure a share of
the ACC title with a great Notre Dame team is a tremendous honor, particularly in our last season in the ACC,” Terps coach Sasho Cirovski said.
“This has been one of most competitive season in a very long time in the ACC. The tournament should be a dandy.”
Maryland will Boston College at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Ludwig
Field. No. 1 ranked Notre Dame, which finished tied atop the league standings in its first season in the ACC, will host Duke.
Wake Forest, the third seed, will host sixth-seeded
Virginia, while Clemson, the No. 4 seed, will play its quarterfinal game against fifth-seeded North Carolina.
The eight-team tournament will culminate with the semifinals and finals
in Germantown, Md., at Maryland SoccerPlex.
