Jackson’s late heroics not enough for Maryland

By: Conner Hoyt

Maryland was seconds away from losing its second consecutive Big Ten game when they traveled to Michigan State.

That is, until Chelsea Jackson struck. The junior transfer from Oklahoma netted her second goal of the conference affair to draw the Terrapins even with Sparty at 2-2 with just under a minute remaining in the game.

Maryland’s undoing was a phenomenal effort on the part of MSU midfielder Hannah Jones, who had a hat trick on the night. Jones scored in the 108th minute to send the Lady Terrapins back to College Park with a 3-8-1 record overall and a 1-3-0 record in the Big Ten.

Jones is tied for the Michigan State lead in goals with four.

Thursday was the fourth time the Terps played into overtime this season. They have a 0-3-1 record in such games.

Maryland will stay in the Great Lakes state for their next matchup as they head to Ann Arbor to battle a Michigan team that as of Thursday evening, sat at 3-0-0 in Big Ten play.
