Terrapins are on an upward trend

[INDIANA-MARYLAND: Men] Watch out for Maryland. The Terrapins' first season since leaving the ACC for the Big Ten has been a struggle -- in and outside conference play -- but they are starting to come around, beating No. 3 Indiana, 2-1, Sunday at Armstrong Stadium for their fourth win in a row.
 
Last week, the Terrapins handed No. 7 Penn State its first loss of the season.

Senior Alex Shinsky put the Terps on the board in the 20th minute with a great solo effort, winning the ball about 30 yards out, making a slick move to evade a defender at the top of the 18 and finished with an angled strike to the far right post.
 
Sophomore Alex Crognale headed home a pass from Mikias Eticha from seven yards to cushion the Terrapin lead to two with his first career goal in the 52nd minute.
 
The Terps saw their 343-minute shutout streak snapped in the 73rd minute when Femi Hollinger-Janzen headed one past a leaping Zack Steffen.
 
“Today was a great team effort," said Maryland coach Sasho Cirovski. “The team was extremely connected and competed on every play. It’s clear that we are on an upward trend and the adversity we faced in the beginning of the year is paying dividends for us now. It was extremely important for us to get a road win and to do that at Indiana is extra special.”
