Maryland Terrapins defeat Virginia Cavaliers to advance to ACC men's soccer championship match

By Steve Goff

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.

It will be UNC against Maryland in the final.

In the CAA semis, W&M was leading Delaware at last report; Hofstra took the other semi.

In women's NCAA first-round action, Maryland, Virginia, Georgetown, JMU, and WVU all went through, but Virginia Tech did not. The JMU win over Texas is definitely an upset.

Terp v Hoya women play Sunday at 1:00 in second round of NCAA Championship Tournament. $10 adult and $5 kid tickets, free parking with lots of room for pre and post game tailgate. Weatherman promises "sunny and 65". Come out and support LIVE local soccer. Great venue as well. Both teams deserve the support. Shame that the journey thru the tourney will end for one of them. Wear red for Terps, navy blue for Hoyas, or white for neutral. Just get off your duff and support two teams who have worked hard all year. You deserve to see two class teams play in a game that matters.

Villa 2 - ManU 2

Exciting game with Villa surrendering a 2-0 lead late in the 2nd. Lichaj got a few minutes in. Guzan, predictably, was in the 18 but did not play.
