Virginia Falls to Maryland In Men's Soccer Final Four

Posted:

 

CHESTER, Pa. (AP) -- Patrick Mullins scored his 17th and 18th goals of the season to lead Maryland to a 2-1 victory over Virginia in the NCAA men's soccer semifinals Friday night at PPL Park.
   The Terrapins (17-3-5) will vie for their third national championship in the last nine years when they face Notre Dame -- a 2-0 winner over New Mexico in the first semifinal -- the title game Sunday.
   Mullins scored in the 11th and the 76th minutes, receiving perfect lofted through balls on both goals -- the first from Mikias Eticha and the second from Tsubasa Endoh.
   Trailing 2-0 with time running out, Virginia (13-6-5) got on the board after Maryland's Dan Metzger took down Marcus Salandy-Defour in the box and Todd Wharton scored the ensuing penalty kick in the 77th minute.
   Maryland goalie Zack Steffen, from the Philadelphia area, finished with five saves, including a diving stop on Brian James with less than three minutes remaining to preserve the win.
   Mullins, a finalist to win his second straight MAC Hermann Trophy as the nation's best player, leads Division I in scoring this season and is second in Maryland history with 46 goals. The Terps have lost only once in four years when Mullins scores.
