I read today that teams that lose multi overtime games usually lose the next game they play. I was hoping that was a quirky statistical fact. It wasn’t. the Terps took a 2-1 lead into the 2nd quarter, held possession of the ball for 6 minutes or so and missed shot after shot. Navy scored twice in the closing minutes of the half to take a 3-2 lead and never looked back.Navy’s goalie Tommy Phelan had 17 saves always seeming to know where Maryland’s shots were heading.Coach Cottle tried using a 4th attackman early in the game to no avail. I had a chance to talk with Will Yeatman after the game. will-yeatman-after-navy So now the Terps are up against the wall with a 6-4 record and next Saturday their ultimate rivals game with Johns Hopkins. Antwerpen Terp Talk will completely analyze this pivotal game for both teams Tuesday night at 6PM.
On the other hand the Lady Terps behind Laura Merrifield’s 8 goals defeated Penn State 20-12 and remained undefeated at 12-0.
