Yeah, yeah, the football team beat Wake. They continue to beat good teams but falter against bad ones, it’s one big roller coaster ride, will the real Terp football team please stand up, blah blah blah.
Now for the weekend’s real Maryland sports news. The men’s soccer team won its fourth straight game Friday night and the top-ranked women’s field hockey team continued to roll like a freight train by woman-handling ODU 7-0. The men’s soccer team is ranked sixth after this streak, which included two clutch wins in OT. The field hockey team, led by Katie O’Donnell, just can’t be stopped. If there was a pro women’s field hockey league, O’Donnell would be the first draft pick.
It’s just refreshing to see some Maryland teams give consistent effort out there and actually meet or even — >gasp< — EXCEED expectations. Congratulations, ladies and gentlemen.
