COLLEGE PARK, Md. - The Providence College men's soccer team fell to fifth-ranked Maryland, 3-1, in the second round of the 2013 NCAA Tournament hosted at Ludwig Field in College Park, Md. Providence finished its season with an overall record of 12-6-4.
Maryland took a 1-0 lead in the seventh minute on a goal from Michael Sauers. Sauers dribbled the ball in from the left side of the 18 and finished a strike from the top of the six yard box to the far post. Providence responded with several scoring opportunities, but the Friars were unable to find the back of the net. Providence outshot the Terrapins in the half, 6-5. Red shirt junior Keasel Broome(Claymont, Del.) finished the half with one save.
Providence started the second half with a strong offensive presence. In the 49th minute the Friars nearly evened the game. Sophomore Manny Andrade (Boston, Mass.) dribbled the ball up the left flank and serviced a cross that freshman Julian Gressel(Nuestadt an der Aisch, Germany) volleyed from just outside the six yard box. Gressel's strike drilled the near post and the Terps remained in the lead (1-0).
Providence evened the game at 1-1 in the 69th minute. Junior Fabio Machado (Santa Catarina, Brazil) serviced a cross from 25 yards out from the left side. The cross was finished by junior Phil Towler(Cumbria, England) to mark his second goal of the season.
Maryland answered with a goal in the 70th minute to take a 2-1 lead. The Terrapins earned a penalty kick that was buried by Patrick Mullins. Maryland took a 3-1 lead in the 87th minute when Jake Pace gained possession of the ball 30 yards out and finished a shot low to the corner. Broome played all 90 minutes in goal for the Friars and he tallied four saves in the match.
Maryland advances to the third round of the NCAA Tournament. The Terrapins will host UC Irvine on Sunday, Dec. 1 at 5:00 p.m.
