So how did a struggling team recruit top talent to flip the program around? It started with a plan.
When the Maryland Terrapins women’s soccer team takes the field in Piscataway, New Jersey on Sunday afternoon, they will be plenty rested. It has been 10 days since the Terps last took the field for their matchup against William and Mary, and it was something the team desperately needed.
Up to this point, it seems to be a recipe for success for Maryland. In their overtime contests to date, the Terps sit at 3-0-1. Overall, Maryland has begun the season with a 5-0-1 record as they continue to exceed expectations. On Thursday night, whether it comes by a blowout or a nail-biter, the Terps will look to remain unbeaten in 2017.
Maryland Forward Gordon Wild scored 17 goals in all of 2016. He scored three Saturday night.
Freshmen Mikayla Dayes and Hope Lewandowski flashed the potential to turn around what was a stormy 2016 season for Maryland women’s soccer.
