COLLEGE PARK, Md. – The Maryland women's soccer team fell, 2-0, to Iowa Friday evening at Ludwig Field. 

The Terrapins (3-14-1, 1-9-0) fought hard throughout the 90 minutes, but were unable to get a goal. Bri Toelle and Karly Stuenkel scored for Iowa.

Iowa started the match well and were rewarded with a goal in the 25th minute. A one-two in the box between Karly Stuenkel and Bri Toelle ended with Toelle sliding a shot past Maryland keeper Rachel Egyed.

Maryland started to create chances late in the half. A run of corners concluded with a Marisa Knott cross that Chelsea Jackson headed just wide in the 39th minute. Redshirt freshman Darby Moore had the best chance of the half, ripping a right footed shot that was just palmed over the bar in the 43rd minute.

In the second half, sophomore Jarena Harmon had a solid opportunity in the 48th minute, but her close range effort went wide. Harmon got free in the box against in the 53rd minute but her shot was saved.

Maryland had a decent opportunity in the 88th minute, but Jackson couldn’t get enough on a header toward goal.

The Terps are in action for the final time in 2016 next Wednesday at Minnesota. Action is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m.
