COLLEGE PARK - The third-ranked Maryland men's soccer team came back from an early deficit to beat Georgetown, 4-2, yesterday on the second and final day of the Maryland/Adidas Classic.

The Hoyas got on top quickly in the first half to give the Terps (4-0) their first deficit of the season. But the potent Terps offense recovered and found its rhythm, scoring the next three goals on the way to the victory.

The Terps were led by a pair of goals by Jason Garey and a career-high four points (one goal, two assists) from Chris Lancos. Abe Thompson scored the other Maryland goal, and Kenney Bertz added two assists.

Garey and Thompson were named co-Most Valuable Players of the tournament. Thompson finished the weekend with three goals and an assist, including the game-winning goal Friday against No. 2 St. John's. Garey had five goals and an assist in the tournament, bringing his team-leading points total to 19 (eight goals, three assists).

Georgetown (2-3-0) became one of two teams to score more than a goal against the Terps in the past two seasons. St. John's did it Friday during its 5-2 loss.

No. 2 St. John's 0, No. 14 Penn State 0: The Red Storm (2-1-1) held on in yesterday's first game despite playing a man down in overtime because of Chris Corcoran's red card.
