Terps Fall Late to TCU

By Connor Bell

After having an up and down season up to this point, the Maryland women’s soccer team marched into Texas Christian University to start a two-game winning streak, and they seemed to have accomplished that plan early on when midfielder Sarah Fincher netted a goal early in the first half off a corner kick with assists from Lisa Bianchini and Shannon Collins.

However the Horned Frogs stormed back and midfielder Michell Porkof scored against the Terps only four minutes into the second half. From here, it was anyone’s game, but Maryland had a disadvantage as they undershot TCU with only eights shots compared to TCU’s 13. This game, much like the West Virginia game, was plagued by a limited number of shots from the Maryland offense and because of this struggle, the Maryland defense eventually broke down, and at the worst possible time as TCU’s substitute Faith Carter scored in the 87th minute leading to a Horned Frogs victory.

With this loss the Terps find themselves at a (3-2-0) record, while the Horned Frogs improve to the opposite record of (2-3-0). Maryland looks to get back on track by ending their two game road trip with a win against SMU on Sunday, September 6th at 2:00 pm.
