Philly or Bust.
That is the challenge Maryland men’s soccer head coach Sasho Cirovski gave to his team at the beginning of 2013.
His team started the season 0-1-1, with that first loss coming against the same California (14-5-2) team they beat tonight to advance to their 13th College Cup in program history.
This Terps team has shown the college soccer world that they have matured as a team and are ready to bring an NCAA Championship back to College Park!
The fifth-seeded Terrapins (16-3-5) took down the fourth-seeded Golden Bears 2-1 Saturday night on Cal’s home pitch in the quarterfinals of the 2013 NCAA men’s soccer tournament.
The Terps are having a season to remember. They won the ACC regular season and soccer tournament championships in their last season in the ACC and now are headed to the College Cup.
Maryland’s last NCAA championship came back in 2008. Sasho’s team will face a familiar foe in Virginia when they play in the semifinals on December 13 in Philadelphia. Maryland beat the Cavaliers to win the 2013 ACC tournament championship back in November.
Maryland has made it to Philly, but you can bet that they are not satisfied by just being there. This team will have a chance to bring home a fourth national championship and continue the proud tradition that is Maryland soccer.
