Goals by Casey Townsend at 10:45 and Billy Cortes at 77:22 lifted Maryland (15-5-2) to a 2-0 victory over No. 10 seed Harvard in the round of 16 in the NCAA men's soccer championship Sunday in Cambridge, Mass. Townsend's goal came on a cross from Taylor Kemp that Cortes set up with a run down the sideline. Cortes' goal was a 30-yard strike past goalie Austin Harms. The reigning national champion Terps outshot the Crimson 15-12, including 12-5 in the second half. "I'm very proud of our team," Maryland coach Sasho Cirovski said. "I thought our preparation was outstanding and that we had a strong sense of confidence." Zac MacMath made five saves in Maryland's ninth shutout win of the season as the Terps advanced to the Elite Eight for the sixth time in the past eight years. Maryland will play No. 2 seed Virginia in Charlottesville for the third time this season Friday at 7 p.m. The teams tied 0-0 in College Park on Oct. 31, and the Cavaliers won, 1-0, in the Atlantic Coast Conference quarterfinals Nov. 11 in Cary, N.C.
