Women's Soccer Ends Season With 1-0 Loss To Washington
Nov. 20, 2004
Seattle, Wash. -
The University of Maryland women's soccer team ended its season with a 1-0 loss to the University of Washington, Sunday evening at Husky Soccer Field in Seattle.
The Huskies appeared to jump on the board in the 13th minute, but UW was called for an offside violation that wiped out the goal.
Washington continued to press the attack and put the game's lone goal on the board in the 19th minute when two-time Pac-10 player of the year Tina Frimpong scored her 15th goal of the season. The play started with UW's Colby Branham firing a shot through a screen that deflected off of Terrapin goalkeeper Nikki Resnick. The ball bounced in front of the Maryland goal where Frimpong deposited it into the net.
Resnick kept the Terps in the contest with another tremendous performance. The sophomore from Boca Raton, Fla., stopped eight shots on the evening, including two one-on-one situations with Frimpong.
Offensively Maryland couldn't find its rhythm and struggled to find good scoring opportunities. The Terps were hampered by not having Kimmy Francis, the team's second leading scorer, at full strength due to a knee injury suffered in the Penn State win in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.
Maryland finishes its season with a record of 9-7-4 and made its first trip to the third round of the NCAA tournament since 1996 and its first ever since the field was expanded to 64 teams.
Washington will now go on to the quarterfinals and will meet No. 7 seed Princeton, which defeated Boston College 2-1 Saturday afternoon.
