Women's Soccer Rallies Past South Carolina 5-2
Sept. 10, 2004
Charlottesville, Va. - Down 1-0 at the half the University of Maryland women's soccer team (2-1-1) exploded for five second half goals to beat South Carolina (4-2-0) 5-2 at the Virginia Soccer Classic.
The scoring came fast and furious right from the start of the second half. Junior midfielder Mallory Mahar (Medina, Ohio) tied the match for the Terps in the 46th minute with a header off a cross from senior Danielle Malagari (Clarksburg, Md.). Just two minutes later freshman Kelly Rozumalski (Middleburgh, N.Y.) scored her first collegiate goal off an assist from fellow freshman Nataly Arias (Alexandria, Va.) in the 48th minute.
Arias would then go on to score the game winner, her first goal of the 2004 season, in the 54th minute off an assist from junior Kimmy Francis (Richboro, Pa.). Mahar would add her second of the game, third on the season, on a header off of a cross from Francis.
Francis would then go on to wrap up the scoring with an unassisted goal from 40 yards out that caught the South Carolina keeper out of position.
Maryland will play its second match of the Virginia Soccer Classic on Sunday at 12 noon against No. 8 UCLA. The Bruins played the host school No. 5 Virginia Friday night.
