AU goal off Terps' defender brings 2-1 victory in overtime


September 20, 1990|By Gary Davidson | Gary Davidson,Special to the Sun

COLLEGE PARK -- The University of Maryland's rapid rise in the national soccer rankings ran into a particularly painful roadblock yesterday. To add insult to injury, the seventh-ranked Terrapins' overtime loss to American University came off the foot of a Maryland defender.

The visiting and undefeated Eagles used the goal -- accidentally booted in by Calvert Hall graduate Jeff Ulehla -- in the match's 114th minute to shock the Terps, 2-1, at Denton Field, leaving Maryland fans to wonder if their team's highest ranking since its National Collegiate Athletic Association co-championship with Michigan State in 1968 may have been premature

"You can put us 50th, you can put us 100th, you can put us first, it doesn't matter," said sixth-year Maryland coach Alden

Shattuck. "The polls are political anyway. They are only good because they create media interest and they write about us."

Maryland (4-2-1) had surprised then-No. 7 Virginia, 1-0, Sunday, triumphing for the first time in Charlottesville in 13 years.

With a second 15-minute overtime period winding to conclusion, a pair of substitute strikers combined to force the Terps' deadly error. Sophomore Mario Medina carried deep into the right corner and sent a centering pass to freshman Jose Aservi, whose shot was stopped by sliding goalkeeper Carmine Isaaco. Isaaco's momentum, however, carried him into Ulehla's legs, and the ball came loose and ricocheted into the net with 6 minutes, 34 seconds left.
