• The Terps opened the season with a 9-0 shutout of The Citadel (recap | stats) on Aug 23. Sophomore Ashley Spivey set career highs with her first career hat trick and seven total points. Freshman Lauren Berman made her collegiate deubt a memorable one with a goal and two assists.

• Maryland fell behind 2-0 early in the first half against Villanova on Aug. 26, but a late hat trick from senior Hayley Brock lifted the Terps to a 4-2 win over the Wildcats (recap | stats). Junior Cory Ryan scored before halftime to cut Nova's lead to one goal heading into the second half. The Wildcats went down a player when Kathryn Rayner was sent off with a red card in the 52nd minute. But Maryland couldn't capitalize until Brock scored three times from the 83rd to the 87th minutes to give the Terps the win.
• The Terrapins jumped out early and never looked back in their 3-0 shutout of George Mason (recap | stats) on Aug. 30. Sophomore Riley Barger scored her first career goal in just the second minute of the match to spot the Terps a 1-0 lead. Senior Hayley Brock continued her torrid scoring pace by netting the second goal of the game in the seventh minute. Freshman Lauren Berman added her second goal of the season in the 80th minute to close the scoring. Berman and Brock also added assists in the match and sophomore Shannon Collins picked up a pair of assists vs. the Patriots.
• The Terps earned their third shutout victory of the season with a 2-0 win over Navy (recap | stats) on Sept. 1. The match was scoreless until the 71st minute when sophomore Gabby Galanti scored her first goal of the season off of assists from junior Cory Ryan and sophomore Riley Barger. Senior Hayley Brock netted the insurance goal in the 82nd minute off of a feed from senior Megan Gibbons. Sophomore goalkeeper Rachelle Beanlands made a season-high four saves.
• The Terrapins wrapped up its non-conference slate and its two-game west coast road trip at No. 4 Stanford.

Brock and junior Cory Ryan earned assists on Spivey's game-winning goal.
• The Terps threatened early, but Virginia Tech scored off of a corner kick in the 38th minute and tacked on a late insurance goal in the 88th to defeat Maryland 2-0 (recap | stats) at Ludwig Field on Sept. 19. The Terrapins had a chance to tie the match at 1-1 early in the second half when a hand ball in the box gave Maryland a penalty kick, but Hokie keeper Dayle Colpitts guessed correctly on Ashley Spivey's attempt and was just able to deflect the ball outside of the left post.
• Maryland picked up its first major result of the 2013 season with its 1-0 shutout of No. 3 Wake Forest (recap | stats) on Sept. 22 at Ludwig Field. Senior Hayley Brock scored the game's lone goal in the fourth minute off of assists by senior Megan Gibbons and freshman Lauren Berman. Sophomore keeper Rachelle Beanlands made six stops as the Terrapins limited the dangerous Demon Deacon attack to just a couple of quality opportunities, which both came on set pieces.
• A hat trick by Cari Rocarro led the No. 3 Notre Dame Fighting Irish to a 5-0 home win over the Terps (recap | stats) on Sept. 26. Freshman Lauren Berman had two shots to lead the Terrapin offense, while sophomore keeper Rachelle Beanlands made three stops.
• Maryland battled No. 1 Virginia, but the Cavaliers took advantage of a defensive turnover to net the game’s lone goal just prior to the first half ending to take a 1-0 decision (recap | stats). The match was scoreless and evenly contested right up until the 45th minute when a defensive turnover in Maryland’s back third gave the ball to Brittany Ratcliff and she chipped the ball over sophomore keeper Rachelle Beanlands, who finished with five saves, to put the Cavaliers ahead with 22 seconds left on the clock.
• Freshman Natasha Ntone-Kouo scored her first collegiate goal and that proved to be the game winner as the Terps shutout NC State, 3-0, (recap | stats) on Oct. 3. Ntone-Kouo gave the Terps a 1-0 lead in the 37th minute poking in a loose ball following a header by Lauren Berman that came off of a Megan Gibbons corner kick. Senior Hayley Brock scored the insurance goal in the first minute of the second half, while sophomore Aubrey Baker tacked on the third goal in the 52nd minute.
• Freshman Lauren Berman scored just 17 seconds into the game to put the Terps on top, but ultimately No. 6 North Carolina proved too much on this day, earning a 3-1 victory (recap | stats) on Oct. 6 at Fetzer Field. Senior Hayley Brock earned the assist on Berman's goal, which was the second-fastest goal ever scored on a Tar Heel team.
• The Terps controlled the match from start to finish, but couldn't find any luck finishing and ended up on the losing end of a 2-1 decision (recap | stats) to Duke on Oct. 13. Junior Cory Ryan scored Maryland's lone goal, knocking in a rebound off of a shot from sophomore Aubrey Baker, but the Terrapins couldn't complete the comeback despite holding a 16-9 advantage in shots.
• Sophomore Ashley Spivey netted the game-winning goal in the 56th to give the Terps their first-ever win at Miami, 1-0 (recap | stats) on Oct. 17.

• Maryland fell behind 2-0 at No. 3 Florida State, but a goal in the 88th minute by sophomore Ashley Spivey gave the Terps hope, but a final surge failed to bring the equalizer and the Terrapins dropped a 2-1 decision (recap | stats) in Tallahassee.
Scouting The Orange
• Syracuse won its third ACC match of the season this past Sunday with a 2-1 overtime win at NC State to up its overall record to 7-9-1.
|2013 Syracuse Orange: 7-9-1, 3-7-1 ACC|
|(Soccer America NR, NSCAA NR, TopDrawerSoccer.com NR)|
• The Orange began the season winning four of its first five matches with the lone loss being on the road at defending Big XII champion West Virginia. After closing out its non-conference schedule with a 1-0 loss at former Big East rival UConn, Syracuse opened its ACC slate with road losses at Virginia, Virginia Tech and Notre Dame. A 2-2 tie at home with Duke gave SU its first ACC result, but that was followed by home losses to Clemson and Wake Forest. An overtime loss to Florida State was sandwiched by shutout wins at Pitt and at home vs. Miami. Last week the Orange played at North Carolina before the win at NC State and played the defending NCAA champions tough, falling 1-0 in Chapel Hill.
• Freshman forward Stephanie Skilton leads the Syracuse offense with 19 points on nine goals and one assist. Sophomore forward Erin Simon is close behind with 14 points on five goals and a team-best four assists.

Terps Toppling Top 10 Teams
• Maryland has defeated a Top 10 ranked team 22 times in its history.
• The latest Top 10 win for the Terps came on Sept. 22, 2013 when the Terps shutout No. 3 Wake Forest at Ludwig Field. It was the second-straight match the Terps toppled a Top-10-ranked Demon Deacon squad via shutout. On Nov. 2, 2012 in the ACC semifianls at the WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary, N.C., when Maryland defeated No. 6 Wake Forest, 2-0. That win marked the Terps' first shutout of a top 10 team since their 1-0 win at No. 10 Tennessee in the 2006 season opener.
• The Terps' most memorable Top 10 victory, 2-1 at No. 2 North Carolina on Oct. 24, 2010 tied for he highest ranked opponent ever defeated by Maryland. The Terrapins defeated No. 2 Boston College on Oct. 7, 2010 in Chestnut Hill, Mass. Those two victories marked the first time in program history that Maryland has defeated two Top 10 teams in a single month.
• The Terps then added to that with another 2-1 win over No. 8 Florida State on Oct. 28, 2010.
• The Terps' 2-1 win over No. 6 North Carolina on Sept. 13, 2012 gave Maryland the distinction of becoming the first team in history to defeat the Tar Heels three straight times in three consecutive seasons.
