Terps men gain ACC soccer final

November 16, 1996|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

Five Maryland players scored yesterday, as the second-seeded Terps routed No. 3 seed Wake Forest, 5-1, in the ACC men's soccer tournament semifinals in Charlottesville, Va.

Jason Cropley, R. T. Moore and Shane Dougherty scored goals in an 18-minute stretch early in the second half to give the Terps a 4-0 lead. Maryland plays top seed Virginia -- which beat Duke, 3-2, in overtime in the other semifinal -- tomorrow for the ACC title.

The Terps outshot the Demon Deacons, 12-9, including 8-4 in the second half. Keith Beach had two assists for Maryland.


Candice Seitz had a team-high 13 kills and Maryland hit 46 percent as a team as the Terps topped visiting N.C. State in three games (15-0, 15-7, 15-0) to become the first team in ACC history to record 15 straight wins and remain undefeated in league play.

Maryland (21-4, 15-0) plays host to North Carolina today to conclude the regular season. The previous record of 14 consecutive wins was set by Duke in 1993.
