UNC men's soccer team falls to Maryland, 1-0

Posted by on Sun, Dec 14, 2008 at 4:01 PM

Three games were played in the soccer Final Four, and three of the four teams were from the ACC. And only three goals were scored all weekend, one in each game.

Sunday afternoon in Frisco, Texas, the Tar Heels' impressive post-season run came to an end when Graham Zusi scooped up a second-half rebound at the edge of the penalty box and slammed the ball past goalkeeper Brooks Haggerty, just inside the left post.

Although there were a couple of impressive runs from the likes of Michael Callahan and Brian Shriver, for most of the game Carolina was unable to control possession, with poor linkings from rear to front; hence, the team struggled to mount a credible attack. The few strong shots that materialized were stopped by the Terrapins' phenomenal freshman goalkeeper Zac Macmath, who also blanked the Tar Heels last month in the ACC tournament.

It was the Tar Heels' third loss this season to Maryland, which finishes 23-3-0. The Tar Heels' final tally is 15-8-1.
