big wins for maryland soccer and field hockey

Feeling down?  Kevin Tangney has one word for you: GOOOOOOAL!

Feeling down? Kevin Tangney has one word for you: GOOOOOOAL!

Are you feeling a little down because Maryland football sucks this year?

Do you miss the thrill of basketball season?

Does the Fall remind you of all the promises you made but never kept?

Well I say, fret no more, friend!  There is more to life than football, basketball, and lamenting.   There is soccer and field hockey!  Maryland had a weekend of victory in these venerable Fall sports.

On Friday, in front of the biggest crowd ever to fill Ludwig Field, the #4 ranked and defending NCAA Champion Maryland Terrapins men’s soccer team upset #2 UNC.  Terrapin captain Kevin Tangney booted in a desperation shot in the 88th minute to propel the Terps to the win.  With the win, Maryland will likely secure the #1 spot in tomorrow’s rankings.

If that wasn’t enough excitement for one weekend, the #1 ranked defending NCAA Champion Maryland Terrapins field hockey team dismantled #3 ranked Wake Forest this Saturday.  Four different Terps scored in the 4-1 victory.  I tuned into the Game Tracker and saw the score was 1-1 at halftime.  The Terps poured on three goals in a nine minute span during the second half to beat their ACC rivals.

There are many reasons to be proud to be a Terp these days.  These two first class athletic programs are near the top of the list.

    They should permanently rename Fall to The Season of Broken Promises. Although I think that’s already the name of a Death Cab for Cutie record. Cool that the soccer game was Ludwig’s biggest crowd ever. We really need to go one of these days.

    I often think of what life was like before the Fall. We’ll never get back there again.

    We should go to one of those games. Maybe we could find a day where there is a soccer/field hockey double header. Seeing all that greatness at once would be mind blowing.

    I just checked and the soccer rankings haven’t been updated yet.
