Terps draw with Navy

Story by James Mahoney

Despite 110 minutes of soccer, the Terps were unable to score Sunday night in Annapolis. After two overtime periods, Maryland finished in a scoreless draw with Navy.

Navy out-shot Maryland 17-8 as both teams advance to 2-1-1 this season.

Maryland mustered three shots on goal, Navy had four. Keepers Rachel Egyed and Sarah Fortson made four and three saves, respectively.

Sophomore Sydney Staier had a chance to win the game just before the final whistle, but her shot ran just wide.

Maryland should be content with their performance, earning as draw on the road against a team that was picked to finish first in their conference this season.

For the first time this season redshirt senior Rachel Egyed played the full 90 minutes, as coach Ray Leone may have made his choice for his number one goalkeeper. Egyed and junior Erin Seppi had split time in all three previous games this season.

Egyed was able to hold a clean sheet with two saves, making it her second appearance this year in which she did not allow a goal.

The game was the first of a three game road trip for the Terps, who will make stops at Temple and at Drexel this week.
