Maryland Terrapins win 11th straight, defeating Clemson 2-1 in quarterfinals of ACC tournament

By Steve Goff

Casey Townsend's goal early in the second half guided Maryland to a 2-1 victory over Clemson in the ACC tournament quarterfinals Wednesday, the second-seeded Terrapins' 11th consecutive triumph.

Maryland (15-2-1) will play third-seeded Wake Forest or sixth-seeded Virginia in Friday's first semifinal at WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary, N.C. [UPDATED] Hunter Jumper scored from about 30 yards early in the second half to lead sixth-seeded Virginia (11-4-3) to a 1-0 victory over third-seeded Wake Forest (8-9-2).

In the other semifinal, top seed North Carolina, a 4-0 winner over North Carolina State, will face fifth-seeded Boston College, which defeated No. 4 Duke, 1-0.

Since a 2-1 loss at top-seeded North Carolina on Sept. 24, Maryland has outscored its opponents 33-4. Three of those goals allowed were scored by the seventh-seeded Tigers (5-9-4).

For details.....

Billy Cortes scored his fifth of the year in the ninth minute for Maryland, which is ranked No. 3 in the country. But Austin Savage had the equalizer nine minutes later on Clemson's only shot on goal in the half. Townsend restored the lead in the 56th, nodding in Cortes's service for his eighth goal.
