After an unusual game that saw overtime and a delay nearly an hour and a half long due to lightning, the Maryland Terrapins left the field unsuccessful in their quest to top the Boston College Eagles, losing 3-2.
Playing in the Big Ten/ACC Cup at the Spooky Nook Sports Complex in Lancaster, Pa., the Terps were tied at the end of regulation, but gave up a goal to BC’s AshLeigh Sebia in the 71st minute of the game.
Emma Rissinger (unassisted) and Faye Curran (assisted by Rissinger and Anna Dessoye) continued what has been a strong Maryland offense with a goal apiece. Curran’s score came off a penalty corner, an area where Maryland has consistently been able to convert so far this season.
Although Maryland goalkeeper Jill Genovese took the loss, she made four saves throughout the game on a total of 12 BC shots. Offensively, Maryland took 14 shots and scored first, with Rissinger’s goal coming just two and a half minutes into the game.
BC moves to 3-0 on the season while the Terps become 2-1. Maryland will look to put the loss behind them and get back to their winning ways at 3 p.m. on Sunday against Duke.
