Maryland soccer

Before a home-opener crowd of nearly 5,000 at Ludwig Field, No. 2 Maryland beat No. 17 Coastal Carolina on Monday, 3-2. After being shut out for the first time in nearly three years against No. 14 Louisville on Friday, the Terps scored just eight minutes into the match, courtesy of co-captain and senior midfielder Dan Metzger. Metzger connected with a corner kick by junior midfielder Mael Corboz to give Maryland the early advantage. The Chanticleers (1-1-1) picked up the equalizer in the 59th minute after a header by Bryce Follensbee beat Maryland goalkeeper Zack Steffen. Sophomore midfielder Michael Sauers (Archbishop Curley) rocketed a shot from 30 yards out to put the Terps up 2-1 in the 62nd minute. Senior midfielder Mikias Eticha provided the Terps with a two-goal cushion in the 73rd minute with a goal from the top of the box. Senior defender Jereme Raley set up the score from the near sideline. "That was a great win tonight against a national contender in Coastal," coach Sasho Cirovski said.

Women: Maryland junior defender Shannon Collins assisted on both goals in the Terps' 2-1 victory over visiting North Carolina State (1-3) on Sunday night. Collins started the team's 23rd-minute goal with a long pass to junior midfielder Aubrey Baker, who found senior defender Shade Pratt in front of an open goal. In the 60th minute, a Maryland (2-2) corner kick by Collins eventually found junior midfielder Sarah Molina, who squeezed through two Wolfpack defenders to head in the go-ahead goal.
