Maryland Terrapins defeat Virginia Cavaliers to advance to ACC men's soccer championship match
Senior forward Jason Herrick scored twice Friday night and Maryland advanced to the ACC men's soccer championship game with a 2-0 victory over Virginia.
Second-seeded Maryland (16-2-1) has won 12 straight and will play top seed North Carolina -- which edged No. 5 Boston College 1-0 -- in Sunday's final at WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary, N.C.
Sixth-seeded Virginia, which upset No. 3 Wake Forest in the quarterfinals, lost to the Terrapins by a two-goal margin for the second time in two weeks. The defending national champion Cavaliers (11-5-3) are expected to receive an at-large berth in the 48-team NCAA tournament, which will be unveiled Monday.
Herrick scored from close range in the 37th minute and converted Taylor Kemp's free kick in the 72nd, increasing his season total to a team-high 10.
