After 45 minutes of scoreless play, the offense of No. 6 Maryland prevailed for three second half goals and 3-0 victory over local opponent American Monday night.
After a defensive battle of a first half, the teams were scoreless. The Terps (13-4) outshot the Eagles (8-9), 10-3, in the first stanza.
“American played a very good press against us and they were able to come up with the ball,” head coach Missy Meharg said. “Defensively, they double-teamed very quickly. At halftime, we talked about finishing and getting in front of their cover player. We talked about how to get around her and get shots, and I think we did a very good job of that.” from umterps.com
