Down 2-0 in the 2nd half, Billy Cortes was stopped by the Cavalier goalie ona penalty kick and thus ended all hopes of 3rd National Title in 5 years for the Terps.
I am proud of our team and I’m remarkably proud of what our team was able to accomplish this year in light of the adversity we’ve faced,” head coach Sasho Cirovski said. “To start, we are a young team, then we lose two players very early in the year under different circumstances, fought for a whole month of October with a number of injuries, and had to go on the road where I thought we got to a place that’d we’d be in this game. We ran into a very hot, determined and quality Virginia team tonight.”
Maryland ends its campaign at 15-6-2. The Terps notched its eighth-straight Sweet Sixteen appearance and 16th consecutive winning record in 2009. Following Friday’s loss, the defending national champions fall to 8-1-1 all-time in NCAA quarterfinal matches.
