October 06, 2002|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

COLLEGE PARK - Sixth-ranked Maryland knocked off defending NCAA champion North Carolina, 3-1, last night at Ludwig Field, getting early goals from Nino Marcantonio and Sumed Ibrahim and a diligent defensive effort the rest of the way for the Terps' first men's soccer win over the Tar Heels since 1999.

The Terps (9-2, 2-1 ACC) struck less than five minutes into the game when Marcantonio got a strong shot from inside the box past Carolina keeper Ford Williams. Domenic Mediate supplied the assist.

Five minutes later, Ian Rodway (Wilde Lake) thwarted a Carolina clear attempt, directing it to a well-positioned Ibrahim for an easy finish.

North Carolina (7-4, 1-2) got on the board in the 37th minute, converting a turnover into a Ray Fumo goal.
