Senior forward Patrick Mullins scored two goals as No. 4 Maryland beat visiting Marshall, 5-0, in men's soccer. The win marked the Terps' largest margin of victory this season. Junior Dan Metzger, sophomore David Kabelik and freshman Ryan Reid each scored for the Terps (6-2-5). Maryland outshot Marshall (2-7-4) by a 16-6 margin. Also, Mullins was named Atlantic Coast Conference men's soccer Co-Player of the Week. He scored the lone goal against No. 2 Notre Dame in a 1-1 tie Tuesday, and he scored twice and had an assist in a 3-3 tie against then-No. 23 Virginia on Friday that helped Maryland remain unbeaten in ACC play. Mullins leads the Terps with 10 goals this season. This is the second ACC weekly award for Mullins, the conference's reigning Offensive Player of the Year, this season.

Soccer: D.C. United majority owner Erick Thohir, along with two Indonesian business partners, announced the signing of a binding agreement to become a controlling shareholder of the Italian club Inter Milan, which plays in Serie A. "Through a greater focus on soccer properties and synergy between them, these dealings will result in a deeper commitment from me to the continued growth of D.C. United," Thohir said. "We will return D.C. United to its place as a top club in America while building a global brand for the most accomplished team in MLS history." Thohir, along with partner Jason Levien, purchased a majority stake in D.C. United from Will Chang on July 10, 2012. Since then, Levien has served as the club's managing partner, while Chang remains a general partner in the club.
