Final Stats

COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Despite a valiant comeback effort, the fourth-ranked Santa Clara University men's soccer team dropped a 3-1 decision at fifth-ranked Maryland tonight in front of 2,827 fans at Ludwig Field.

Kelechi Igwe scored in the 47th minute after the Broncos (2-1-0) fell behind 3-0 at halftime. Jason Garey scored a pair of goals and defender Kenney Bertz headed in another to help the Terrapins move to 2-1 on the young season.

Maryland jumped out with offensive pressure early, with Garey recording a goal just 1:33 into the match. Burch was able to win a ball in the midfield and play it ahead to Garey who streaked past the defense before beating keeper Christopher Moreo in the lower-left portion of the net.

Bertz added the second score after Dello-Russo took a free kick from 40 yards out. Dello-Russo's kick curled into the box where Bertz headed it in for a 2-0 Terp lead in the 27th minute.

Santa Clara fought back with an early score in the second half when Hector Guzman's cross along the ground found the foot of Igwe for the goal in the 47th minute. The Maryland keeper made a clutch save in the second half as Keith DeVey nearly was able to redirect a pass from Mehdi Ballouchy, but was able to deflect it wide of the goal.

The Broncos return to action on Sunday, Sept. 11, as they take on Georgetown in the final game of the Maryland/adidas Classic. The Hoyas defeated 15th-ranked Virginia Commonwealth 3-1 in the tournament's opening game.
