Nov. 18, 2012
COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Dan Metzger's goal in the waning moments of regulation was the difference as No. 2 Maryland defeated Brown 2-1 in the second round of the 2012 NCAA Men's Soccer Tournament Sunday at Ludwig Field.
Bobby Belair scored early for Brown (13-3-3), before goals by Patrick Mullins and Metzger lifted Maryland (18-1-2) to the third round for a nation-best 11th season where it will face Coastal Carolina in next week's third round.
Brown capitalized on its control of possession early in the first half when Beliar turned in a corner kick for the game's opening goal. The senior forward was able to get ahold of Dylan Remick's dangerous cross for his fourth tally of the season.
The Bears almost doubled their lead just after the opener. Sophomore Ben Maurey's chip went just wide after Maryland keeper Keith Cardona was caught out of his goal.
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- Senior goalkeeper Scott Goodwin made three saves as No. 9 seed North Carolina downed UMBC, 3-2, in a penalty shootout after the sides battled to a 0-0 draw Sunday at Fetzer Field.
Carolina advances to the Third Round for the fifth straight year and will host Fairleigh Dickinson on Sunday, Nov. 25 at a time to be determined.
The shootout victory is the sixth straight for the Tar Heels and senior goalkeeper Scott Goodwin has registered at least one save in each shootout, including three against UMBC.
The teams were unable to break through during the 90 minutes of regulation and a pair of 10-minute golden goal extra time periods so the match would be decided by penalties.
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - Wake Forest took a 1-0 lead in just the fourth minute on a goal from Michael Gamble, but Coastal Carolina tied the game in the 65th minute and won it in overtime on Sunday night to advance to the Third Round of the NCAA Men's Soccer Championship.
The Demon Deacons end their season with an 11-4-5 overall record, while the Chanticleers are now 20-2-2.
Robby Joe Daniels took a shot in overtime that was blocked by the Deacon defense, but Jakub Stourac collected the rebound and sent the ball into the net at 98:09 to give Coastal Carolina the victory.
The goal for Gamble was his eighth of the year, as he ends the season with the second-most goals on the team in his inaugural campaign. Luca Gimenez played a ball into the box that was poked away by Coastal goalkeeper Mark Petrus before Gamble gained possession and buried the ball into the empty net.
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- The Virginia men's soccer team saw its season come to a close with a 3-1 defeat to 13th-seeded New Mexico Sunday evening in a second-round NCAA tournament match at the UNM Sports Complex. Virginia, which wraps its season with a 10-7-4 mark, had its seven-match unbeaten streak snapped, while New Mexico (17-3-1) advances to face fourth-seeded Connecticut next Sunday in Storrs, Conn.
"Obviously it's always tough to end a season," Virginia head coach George Gelnovatch said. "I'm really proud of them. It's a young group that handled itself very well in a really tough environment. This is going to be a very good team in the future and playing this team in this environment is going to do us a lot of good."
New Mexico pressured from the start and struck quickly with a goal in the fifth minute. Following a Michael Calderon corner kick, Kyle Venter charged in and headed the ball in from just outside the near post for the score.
