Men's Soccer Falls At #8 Maryland, 2-1
Oct. 4, 2013
COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Freshman Zeiko Lewis scored in the 75th minute but No. 8 Maryland held on for a 2-1 win over the Boston College men's soccer team on Friday night in front of 3,326 fans at Ludwig Field.
Lewis scored his second goal of the season off of a pass from freshman Isaac Normesinu. It was his third assist of the year.
Maryland controlled the first 45 minutes, held an 11-3 advantage in shots and took a 2-0 lead into the locker room. The Terrapins took control early and scored in the fifth minute. Sunny Jane and Jereme Raley helped Michael Sauers score his first goal of the year to put Maryland up 1-0.
The Terps (5-2-3, 4-0-1 ACC) took eight of the first nine shots in the match and scored again in the 30th minute when the pressure caused an own goal.
Boston College evened things out in the second half as both sides took seven shots. After Maryland fired off four of the first five shots, Lewis and Normesinu used a give-and-go to score the BC goal in the 75th minute to cut the deficit to a single goal.
Sophomore Alex Kapp made a couple of nice saves in the 80th minute to keep BC in the match and the Eagles tried to reward him by taking five of the final six shots. Steffen stopped another attempt by Lewis in the 87th minute and then made a great save on a Normesinu shot with 45 seconds left to secure the win.
Both Kapp and Steffen made four saves in goal.
Boston College (4-3-2, 2-2-1) is back in action on Tuesday when it hosts Syracuse in Newton at 5 p.m.
