Mids earn deserved win before record crowd

[NAVY-MARYLAND: Men] Jamie Dubyoski scored in the 53rd minute to give Navy a 2-1 win over No. 6 Maryland on Monday evening in front of a record crowd of 2,522 at the Glenn Warner Soccer Facility. The win was its first victory over the Terrapins in 30 years.

"It was a good college soccer game with two good teams," Navy coach Dave Brandt said. "It could have gone either way, but I'm proud of our guys and it was a good win. But it's all for naught if we can't move forward in a positive way."

Sophomore Daniel Camuti opened the scored in the fourth minute when he fired a low driving shot past  Terps goalkeeper Zack Steffen from 15 yards out for his second goal of the season. Maryland evened the game just two minutes into the second half when Alex Shinsky found Dutchman Jeroen Meefout, who scored from 14 yards out.

Just six minutes later, Dubyoski put the Mids back ahead when Derek Vogel flicked the ball to Dubyoski, who split two Maryland defenders and chipped the ball over Steffen.

In the 70th minute, Navy lost keeper Jackson Morgan with a concussion in a collision with Meefout but freshman goalkeeper Mac Burke, who had only made his collegiate debut on Friday night when he played 26 minutes of Navy's 5-0 blowout win over Appalachian State, came on and preserved the win, making a big save in the 87th minute on Mikey Ambrose's header.

“I thought Navy deserved the victory and they came out and competed very hard,” Maryland coach Sasho Cirovski said. “I thought we played a poor first half and looked tired both mentally and physically. It’s still no excuse for our performance and I have to give Navy credit for competing hard and playing well and making the two plays that mattered.”
