COLLEGE PARK, Md. – Miami used a timely goal from senior Jordan Roseboro eight minutes into overtime to earn a 1-0 decision against No. 7 Maryland on Thursday.
Roseboro’s first goal of the season could not have arrived at a better time. Her open net tally came on an overtime scramble in the box after a free kick taken by sophomore keeper Emily Lillard. The ball snuck past Maryland keeper Rachelle Beanlands and Roseboro finished with a score.
Miami, which fought its way through one of the hardest fought contests of the season, improved to 8-6-2 overall and 3-4-1 in the Atlantic Coast Conference with the win. Lillard improved her personal mark to 6-6-2.
It was Miami’s second consecutive decision versus a ranked Terrapins squad. Miami defeated then-No. 16 Maryland 2-1 a year ago to the day on Oct. 18, 2011. The Hurricanes’ victory marked only the second conference loss and fourth defeat of the season for the No. 7 Terps.
Miami recorded 11 shots overall, four shots on goal and two corner kick opportunities in the contest. The Canes were paced offensively by junior Tara Schwitter and freshman Ally Andreini, who each recorded three shots.
Playing without some of his most important contributors, head coach Tom Anagnost saw his team claw its way to victory in one of the more intense matches of the fall.
