Terps men, women face NCAA tourney opponents Sunday

November 27, 1996|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

The Maryland men's soccer team will try to advance to the national quarterfinals for the first time in 27 years when it plays host to William & Mary in the second round of the NCAA tournament at Ludwig Field at 1 p.m. Sunday.

The Tribe (19-2-1), the Colonial Athletic Association champion, last won a second-round game in 1980. The Terps (14-5-3), who are 3-2-1 against CAA opponents this season, have won five straight games and are 10-1-1 in their past 12 matches.

Maryland edged James Madison, 2-1, in the NCAA second round when Steve Armas scored 8 1/2 minutes into overtime Saturday.

Women visit Notre Dame

Maryland's women's team (19-4-2) visits defending national champion Notre Dame (22-1) at 1 p.m. Sunday in a national quarterfinal game.

The Terps have outscored their NCAA tourney opponents, 3-0, this year, including a 1-0 win Sunday over San Diego.

In their second NCAA tournament, the Terps advanced to the Final Eight last year. Maryland is 3-0 in the postseason at home, but lost its only road NCAA tourney game last year to Portland in the national quarterfinals.

Maryland and Notre Dame are the only schools whose men's and women's teams are still playing in both soccer tournaments.
