terps soccer slays the golden bears with wit and good looks, advances to elite 8

Although field hockey is getting all the attention these days, there is another Maryland athletic program making its way through the post-season.  The Terps avenged an early-season loss to Cal by beating the Bears 2-1 this Saturday.  They will face Creighton this Saturday at 1PM in College Park.

The press has a made a big deal out of the fact that the team is coached by Matt LeBlanc, but coaches don’t win soccer games, goal scorers do.  I am copyrighting that phrase so don’t even think about using it.  Junior Jeremy Hall scored the game-winner with his 14th goal and 34th point in 23 games.  If I had to pick someone that Jeremy Hall resembled I’d have to go with field hockey player Katie O’Donnell because he, too, has such a nice smile.  Damn it, I can’t control these urges to write about the field hockey team!  I love your smile Katie!  Back to soccer…

The ACC is the dominant conference for mens’ soccer, but there are some solid mid-major programs out there and Creighton is one of them.  Maryland came into the tournament with the #4 RPI ranking, but the top 3 – Wake, St. Johns, and Indiana, are still in it. It’s great that we’re in the Elite 8, but the real test is yet to come.

    You’re doing a great job of walking a fine line between proud uncle and sexual predator. I hope the soccer team can pull a couple more out so that we actually have some good news to blog about.

    I think of it more like having a famous second cousin that you’ve never met but brag about like you see them every year during the holidays.
    It would be awesome to win it all for the second time in three years.
