1. Freshmen come through again for Maryland


Freshmen Jason Herrick and Jeremy Hall scored goals in the second half to lead Maryland, ranked No. 6 in the Soccer America Men's Top 25, to a 2-0 victory over visiting Mt. St. Mary's on Wednesday night.
 
For both Herrick, a Chicago Magic product, and Hall, a former U.S. U-17 resident, it was their third goal of the season. Herrick assisted on Hall's goal, giving him three for the season.

"We had a good response to the loss on Friday," Maryland coach Sasho Cirovski said. "We showed the Mount a lot of respect. We came out here and played some really good soccer. Some of the finishing was a bit off, but the build up and the movement were pretty nice to see."
 
Maryland had lost for the first time in 2006 to Clemson last Friday night.

  • For the second time in as many games, it was All-American midfielder Sinisa Ubiparipovic who came up with the game-winning goal, scoring with just 29 seconds remaining in regulation to give No. 12 Akron a 1-0 victory over Oakland. The win was the fifth in a row for the Zips. "This was our best performance of the year, from start to finish," said Akron coach Caleb Porter.
