College Park, Md. -
The University of Maryland battled the sixth-ranked Virginia Cavaliers to a 0-0 tie Tuesday night at Ludwig Field. The decision brings the Terps' record on the season to 4-3-2, 1-3-1, in the ACC. Virginia, after winning nine straight to start the season, is now 9-1-1 overall, 2-1-1 in the ACC.
With limited depth the Terrapins relied on a stingy defense and an opportunistic offense to dictate the pace of the match. Sophomore goalkeeper Nikki Resnick turned in another outstanding performance, stopping seven Virginia shots to record her second consecutive shutout.
The Cavaliers outshot Maryland by a 28-6 margin, but freshman midfielder Stevie Dunning had perhaps the best scoring opportunity of the match. In the 34th minute of play Dunning flicked a header that appeared to have Cavalier goalkeeper Christina de Vries beat, but the ball went over the crossbar by mere inches.
The Terps return to Ludwig Field on Friday, October 8 to take on N.C. State in a crucial ACC match. The game is set to begin at 7:00 p.m.
The Wolfpack is 7-3-2 on the season, but only 1-3-0 in the ACC, and is on a two-game losing streak. Maryland will enter the game with some confidence after defeating Clemson 1-0 on the road last Saturday and tying No. 6 Virginia.
