COLLEGE PARK, Md. – No. 2 Maryland field hockey shutout future conference opponent Michigan, 2-0, Sunday in its final game of a three-week homestand. The Terrapins (8-0, 1-0 ACC) gritted out the victory over a tough Michigan squad that had won three in a row.
“We’re obviously very pleased with the outcome,” head coach Missy Meharg said. “Michigan is fit and well-coached. It’s always an honor to play them. It’s nice to be knowing you’re going to the Big Ten and have an opportunity to start to look at them and be around them. They’re a great program.”
The Terps and the Wolverines (4-4) were even in shots with 13 apiece. Michigan threatened to get on the board throughout the second half, as the Terrapins were down a player for nearly a 10 minute stretch after Gerzabek was awarded one in the 49th minute and Shelby Sydnor was given one in the 54th minute.
Next, Maryland will take on No. 17 Boston College (6-1, 1-0 ACC) Friday at 7 p.m. in Newton, Mass. Next Sunday, the Terrapins will play at No. 7 Massachusetts at 1 p.m. Live stats will be available for both games and live updates will be available at @TerpFieldHockey.
