The No. 5 University of Maryland women’s soccer team suffered a tough 1-0 loss in overtime to the Miami Hurricanes Thursday night at Ludwig Field. The loss drops the Terps to 11-4-2 overall and 6-2-1 in ACC play, while the Canes improve to 8-6-2 on the year and 3-4-1 in the conference.
Miami’s Jordan Roseboro scored in the 98th minute, following a collision of several players inside the Maryland 18-yard box that ended with Roseboro get a free run at an empty Maryland net.
The play was setup when a questionable offsides call on freshman Gabby Galanti set up a free kick by Miami keeper Emily Lillard from 10 yards inside the Hurricane side of the midfield stripe. That free kick bounded over the collection of players and into the Maryland 18-yard box. Maryland keeper Rachelle Beanlands came off of her line to try to get the ball, but she got tangled up with several Maryland and Miami players. Beanlands and senior Domenica Hodakcollided hard and stayed down, but the ball popped free and Roseboro was there to put the empty-netter in to give the Hurricanes the victory.
