After being shut out for two consecutive home matches for the first time since 2000, Maryland, the 2013 runner-up, needed a penalty kick
from Mael Corboz
to end the skid and beat Dayton, 1-0, Monday night for only the Terrapins' second win in seven games.
Maryland finished with
a season-high 16 shots and dominated the run of play from the opening whistle.
“It’s great to get a victory. I thought it was a very good team performance tonight. That was
probably our most complete 90 minutes,” Terps coach Sasho Cirovski
said. “I thought the guys came out with great energy and commitment and quality
tonight. We certainly deserved more than the one goal we got. I was pleased. I thought it was a good response from the Michigan State game. Dayton is a very good team and they are going to be a
handful for a lot of teams this year.”
