The Maryland men’s soccer team picked up a marquee road victory Sunday when it topped No. 5 Indiana, 2-1, at Armstrong Stadium.
Senior Alex Shinsky and sophomore Alex Crognale both scored for Maryland (7-5-2, 3-2-1 Big Ten) which notched its fourth-straight victory. It is the first road win for the Terps this season, who have downed top-five ranked foes two consecutive weekends.
The second-ranked Maryland field hockey team (13-2, 5-1 B1G) beat Big Ten opponent Rutgers 4-0 Sunday at the Field Hockey & Lacrosse Complex. Junior Sarah Sprink scored twice to lead the Terrapins.
The Terrapins controlled both ends of the field to win their last eight games since Sept. 26. Maryland outshot Rutgers (6-9, 1-6), 26-5 with 14 penalty corners to the Scarlet Knights’ two.
Sprink opened the scoring just under five minutes in when she banged in a shot off a penalty corner set up by Katie Gerzabek and Anna Dessoye.
In the 12th minute, senior Maxine Fluharty buried a rebound off another penalty corner to make it a two-goal lead for the Terps. Maryland led 2-0 at halftime.

The team showed a ton of character today. When CJ went down in the 3rd quarter, the entire defense rose and withheld the Hawkeyes from scoring.
A look at the many pros from today:
Will Likely–another big play —- the pick six
The defensive line (especially, Andre Monroe and Darius Kilgo) had its best game of the year.
Stefon 9 catches 130 yds–1 TD –says it all
Great sideline catch by Coach Edsall in the 4th quarter
Great Crowd of 48,000 plus–that also stayed til the end
Coach Edsall –Post game
“I’m just so proud of these kids. In terms of how they conduct themselves, how they handle themselves, how they just never say die and keep fighting, keep battling when we have some of our self-induced things out there on the field. That was a great win today against a very fine football team. The thing that I was very impressed with is the fact that we did it as a team. All three phases contributed and did their end. A bunch of guys stepped up that maybe haven’t been playing a whole bunch and it just seems like this group really grasped that team concept, that team pride and they love each other. They want to play hard for each other, they want to do it for each other; and when you have that, you get the results that you got today.”
Iowa Coach Kirk Ferentz
“It’s a disappointing loss for our football team, but congratulate Maryland. They are a veteran team and well coached. Today wasn’t much fun for us but we got what we deserved. We’ll go back home and see if we can play better next time we’re on the football field.”
“I don’t want to diminish what they [Maryland] did. They did a great job, they deserve to win, they out played us, they outcoached us; check, check, check, down the list. If we think we can play like that and be successful then we better change our schedule. Clearly that’s not possible at this date so we just have to coach better and play better.”
Offensive Notes: Maryland totaled 212 yards on the ground against the Hawkeyes. It is the second time Maryland has totaled over 200 yards rushing this season. The Terps ran for 285 against James Madison (Aug. 30) … quarterback C.J. Brown rushed for 99 yards pushing his career total to 1,524. Brown is the 21st Terp to eclipse 1,500 yards rushing … running back Wes Brown rushed for two scores Saturday and has totaled three rushing TDs in the last three games. Brown has five career rushing touchdowns … wide receiver Amba Etta-Tawo caught his first passes of the season snagging three for 46 yards.
Defensive Notes: Maryland totaled four sacks for the second consecutive week … the Terps held Iowa to 116 rushing yards, the second-lowest total for the Maryland defense this season. The previous low was 83 against USF (Sept. 6) … linebacker Yannick Ngakoue added one TFL to his season total with his fourth sack and now has 9.5 TFL this season. He entered the weekend leading the conference in tackles for loss … Darius Kilgo and Roman Braglio each added one sack, while Andre Monroe and Keith Bowers had a half a sack.

I wonder if CWebb knows who Richie Guerin is.
I’m all in for the Orange and Black (SF that is). I got real tired of the Royals dissing the O’s. I wonder how Buck feels.
