This was a heartbreaker. A packed house showed up at Ludwig Field to hopefully watch the Terrapins vault into another College Cup nexyt week in Santa Barbara. But it was not to be. The Terps squandered scoring chance after scoring chance in the first overtime and were beaten on a passive 4 foot shot by the Big Ten Champs. Casey Townsend played a miraculous game scored 1 of the goals with his running mate Jason Herrick getting the other. Sasho was extremely disappointed after the game:
“This is probably the most gut-wrenching, heartbreaking loss at Ludwig in my career but yet I’m extremely proud of the effort our team put forward,” head coach Sasho Cirovski said. “I thought that we played a very good first half and were very unlucky to not get more than one goal. Michigan gained some momentum with that early goal in the second half and yet we were still very composed and really felt like we were going to come back and win this game. “Our guys rebounded with the championship fiber that is a part of our program. We did everything but put the ball in the back of the net. I love this team. We’ve had an unbelievable season. It’s really hard to believe we are not going to Santa Barbara.”
Despite the loss, hats off to Sasho and his ACC Champs for a tremendous season. I guess I will have to eat a little humble pie from Karl Pick. Oh well!
