Miami scores on both shots, tops No. 10 Terps

No.10 Maryland, which won 3-0 on Thursday on just three shots on goal at No. 11 Florida State, 10 Maryland (8-3-4, 3-3-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) was on the other side of things in a 2-1 loss at Miami on Sunday afternoon. The Hurricanes managed to get only two shots on goal, but both found the back of the net. "This one hurts," Maryland coach Brian Pensky said. "I think we're all still in a bit of shock that we lost this game. Our soccer was very good, I thought, in the first half, and we felt we were unlucky to not be ahead." The Terrapins (8-3-4, 3-3-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) got off to a quick start in the 17th minute when junior Olivia Wagner made the Hurricanes pay for fouling a Maryland player near the Miami 18-yard box. Wagner blasted a low shot through the wall to pick up her team-leading seventh goal of the season.

Towson 1, UNC Wilmington 0, OT: Freshman midfielder Katlyn Axenfeld scored the game's only goal in the 93rd minute to lead the visiting Tigers (8-8-0, 3-5-0 Colonial Athletic Association) to their third win in the past four games. In earning their first victory over the Seahawks (2-13-0, 0-7-0) since 1994, the Tigers also remained in the hunt for a berth in the CAA tournament. With three games remaining, the Tigers are in 10th place in the standings but just two points out of sixth place. The top six teams qualify.

Marist 1, Loyola 0, OT: Amanda Epstein scored less than four minutes into the first overtime as the Red Foxes (10-5-0, 5-1-0 Colonial Athletic Association) edged the host Greyhounds (5-10-0, 3-2-0). Rycke Guiney sent a ball into the box that was flicked over the head of keeper Didi Haracic by Samantha Panzner and finished into the empty net by Epstein in the 94th minute of play. Gigi Mangione led Loyola with four shots, putting three on net.

No. 20 Boston University 8, UMBC 0: The Retrievers (0-13-2, 0-5-1 America East) suffered their second straight shutout, this time against the four-time defending America East champion Terriers (14-2-1, 7-0-0).
