Rutgers gave the Terrapins all they could handle, but SBI No. 20 Maryland won the Big Ten regular-season title with a 3-2 result Wednesday night.

The Terps first season in their new conference ended on a high note. Mael Corboz opened the scoring in the 5th minute, but Rayon Gibbs equalized in the 23rd minute for the Scarlet Knights.

George Campbell and David Kabelik added two more for Maryland, so a late goal from Scarlet Knights defender Mitchell Taintor was not enough to ruin the celebration.

No. 14 Michigan State, who were winless in their last four matches, surprised No. 1 Indiana 3-2 in Bloomington. Spartans midfielder Ken Krolicki lead the team by scoring a brace. He tallied his first in the 30th and his second in the 55th.

Hoosiers forward Andrew Oliver scored the first for Indiana in the 48th, and the team also benefited from a Spartans own goal. But Adam Montague scored the game-winning goal in the 83rd minute to give them the upset win.

Meanwhile, the ACC tourney’s first round began Wednesday. Duke topped North Carolina St. 3-2, while Virginia edged Virginia Tech 1-0. Duke will play Syracuse, and Virginia will visit Notre Dame in the ACC quarterfinals Sunday.

  1. Congrats to Princeton who have played attractive soccer all year with Porter and Sanner accounting for 21 goals in 15 games, and both Hurtado and McSherry capable of providing accurate service things look bright. Getting accustomed to a 3 man back line (and some injuries in back) caused too many defensive breakdowns early in the season; you never know but that seems to be behind them now as the midfield has been able to make it very difficult for the opponents to build an attack from the back. It will be fun if the 7-game unbeaten streak continues to see how they might fare in the NCAA tournament.

    Jesse Marsch is, maybe, the most over-qualified assistant college coach in the country.

  2. I’ve watched Michigan State a couple times. They are a very lively team. They were unlucky not to get a draw against Michigan. I wouldn’t say that them beating anyone is really an upset. They could give most any team a tough time

  3. Thanks for the College Soccer update! possible article… (if it hasn’t been done already) how are MLS academy players influencing the college game?

  4. Interesting side note to those scores, with the victory at UC Irvine (who has just fallen apart down the stretch…) UC Riverside has won the Big West South Division while also having the fewest wins and worst overall record in the conference (5-9-4 overall but 4-3-3 in Big West Play)

      • Indeed it should. I was pretty mad that CSUN and CSUF kept blowing their chances to win (a hit post, saved penalty and 2 line clearances in the last 20 minutes) as a win by either would have relegated Irvine to third (bad), but that would set up a bracket where the rightful championship game of UCI vs UCSB could be played in the finals where it belongs.
