Cirovski Sets Terps Record

Sasho Cirovski became Maryland's all-time winningest coach with 218 victories when the Terps defeated Duke, 1-0, before 6,083 at Ludwig Field -- the fifth-largest crowd in program history. Omar Gonzalez scored off a corner kick in the fifth minute for the Terps (5-1, 2-0 in ACC), who have won four straight. Duke's Mike Grella was tossed in the 31st minute. ... Virginia (3-3, 1-0 ACC) scored four times in the first half, including three in a three-minute span (two by Tony Tchani), to rout North Carolina State, 5-0, in front of 3,040 at Klockner Stadium. ... Georgetown conceded a 77th-minute goal and dropped its second straight after winning its first five games, 2-1 to South Florida.

Oh man, it was only two years ago I was there for Sasho's 200th win at Ludwig, complete with '200' signs and a countdown from 200 to the final second.

God those were good days. Congratulations to a College Park legend.

Not sure how UVA gave out attendance numbers. They didn't swipe my card and I doubt they counted all the students on their fingers.

College Park was ROCKING last night. The place was packed and they were turning students away during the game.
I didn't see why Grella got tossed. The linesman caught some pushing or punching right before a free kick. Duke actually played better in the 2nd half and had more chances once they were down a man.

was the field capacity filled? Why did they turn students away? That's the perfect op to attract more fans, specially when you are at home and winning. Just curious.

There were about 3,000. Then about 40 more people showed up.

Saw Robbie Rogers at the Trep game. I thought he was playing here:

He is good luck. Lets fly him in for all the home games.

One of the guys who was taking tickets at Ludwig had one of those clicker things in his hand -- I suppose that's where the numbers come from.

We've been turned away from Ludwig -- we learned our lesson. Get there early!

Do the Cirovskis have some sort of record for the most combined wins by a couple?
