Terps top Clemson, 4-1, in women's soccer
Hayley Brock scored two goals and Becky Kaplan added a goal and an assist to lead the host Maryland women's soccer team to a 4-1 victory over Clemson on Sunday afternoon. The victory raises the Terps' record to 6-2-1 overall and 2-0-0 in Atlantic Coast Conference play. This marks the first time since 1997, and just the second time in program history, that Maryland has started 2-0-0 in ACC play. The Tigers fall to 5-3-2 overall and 0-2-0 in the ACC. Kaplan gave Maryland a 1-0 lead with her team-leading seventh goal of the season in the sixth minute of play. Senior Olivia Wagner started the play by intercepting an errant Tiger pass near the middle of the field. She took a couple of touches before playing the ball forward to Kaplan, who made a quick turn and ran past three Tigers defenders before finishing into the left side of the goal. The lead grew to 2-0 in the 19th minute when a give-and-go between senior Danielle Hubka and freshman Ashley Spivey ended with Hubka scoring her first goal of the season on a nice volley from the right side of the box into the left side of the goal. Brock scored in the 74th minute and added her second goal two minutes later.

Navy got on the board in the 18th minute on a goal from junior forward Ashlynn Soellner and took a 2-0 lead four minutes into the second half on a 15-yard strike by freshman Kaylie Davidson. Navy's three-goal flurry began in the 73rd minute when sophomore Sarah Martella ripped a shot from 18 yards out for her first career goal, and senior captain Kelsey Learned and freshman Jayne Woolard followed with goals. The Mids outshot VMI 38-1 and held a 13-0 advantage in corner kicks. ... Nichole Schiro and Charlotte Miller connected twice on goals, and host Loyola (4-3-1) rebounded from a late equalizing goal to defeat Saint Joseph's (4-4-1) in double overtime, 3-2. Miller sent a pass to a cutting Schiro, and the senior took one touch before sending a right-footed strike inside the right post and past a diving Christine Neal with 1:47 remaining in the second extra session. Schiro had scored a go-ahead goal 63:40 into the game off an assist from Miller. With the Greyhounds ahead 2-1, the Hawks were awarded a free kick from 20 yards with five seconds left, and Taylor Mallory struck a left-footed kick that curved around Loyola's wall and inside the far post.
