Terps Welcome Army in Exhibition Sunday
Aug. 12, 2011
COLLEGE PARK, Md. - The Maryland men's soccer team welcomes Army for an exhibition match Sunday at Ludwig Field. The contest is now slated for 11 a.m. due to weather.
The Terps face a familiar foe their first time out in 2011. The match marks the return of former Maryland standouts Russell Payne and Leo Cullen, who now head the Black Knight program. Payne and Cullen were a part of head coach Sasho Cirovski's first Atlantic Coast Conference title in 1996. Payne served as an assistant for Cirovski for five seasons and helped guide the Terps to a pair of national championships in 2005 and 2008.
Maryland returns 18 letterwinners from the 2010 campaign, including first team All-ACC forward Casey Townsend.
Following Sunday's exhibition, the Terps will play host to Georgetown next Saturday in an exhibition before heading to Germantown, Md., for the ACC/BIG EAST Challenge against St. John's Aug. 26.
