Goalie MacMath Leads Terps into Final 8 of NCAA Title as Terps Shutout Harvard 2-0

Zac MacMath made five critical saves to aid the Maryland men’s soccer team to a win against No. 10 seed Harvard, 2-0, in the third round of the 2009 NCAA Men’s Soccer Championship Sunday. Maryland (15-5-2) moved its record to 12-0 when scoring first when Casey Townsend scored the game-winner at 10:45.  The goal is the sophomore forward’s sixth of the 2009 campaign and second in NCAA Tournament play.

Reigning national champion Maryland outshot Harvard 15-12 on the match, including a decisive 12-5 advantage in the second half. The shutout win is Maryland’s ninth this season. The Terps are now 42-23-4 in NCAA Tournament history and have advanced to the NCAA Elite Eight six times in the last eight years.  “It was muddy, the winds were strong, and we faced a very talented and well-coached Harvard team today,” head coachSasho Cirovski said. “I’m very proud of our team…I thought our preparation was outstanding and that we had a strong sense of confidence.”  Maryland will battle a very familiar foe when it faces No. 2 seed Virginia in Charlottesville for the third time this season Friday at 7 p.m. (from umterps.com)
