One by one, Georgetown men's soccer players crumbled to the ground when the clock struck zero. The Hoyas' unexpected run to the College Cup final finally hit a wall Sunday.
Once the eight-goal scoring madness at the College Cup had ended and Georgetown goalie Tomas Gomez batted away the final penalty kick, there was one last sprint to make.
Georgetown may be the new kid on the block at this weekend's College Cup, the final four of NCAA soccer, but that doesn't mean the Hoyas are going to be star-struck.
This was how Sasho Cirovski and Taylor Kemp wanted it. The longtime Maryland soccer coach and one of his program's anchors sat side by side Saturday, savoring their first trip to the College Cup together.
Maryland (20-1-2) will advance to the College Cup in Hoover, Ala., for the first time since 2008 when it won the national championship. The Terps will face the Georgetown Hoyas, who defeated the University of San Diego 3-1 earlier in the day to advance to the round of four.
