Slow And Steady Wins The Race: Maryland Mens’ Soccer Defeats Penn State

In a closely contested match, Penn State fell to Maryland by a score of 4-3. The Terrapins came into the game ranked No. 25 and are sure to rise after a strong offensive showing against the Nittany Lions. Penn State’s record falls to 5-4-2 with the loss.

How It Happened

After a slow start that saw Maryland take a commanding lead in the possession category, Penn State struck first with a goal from Penn State midfielder and Onward State staff writer Drew Klingenberg. The Nittany Lions continued a strong half of play as Connor Maloney volleyed home a goal assisted by his brother Austin Maloney.

Just as it appeared Penn State was ready to run away with the game, the Terrapins caught the Nittany Lions on a quick counterattack, ending with Tsubasa Endoh putting the ball in the back of the net. As the half came to a close, Maryland’s George Campbell leveled the score with a headed goal from a corner kick with two seconds left.

Maryland began to live up to its top-25 rating at the beginning of the second half. George Campbell scored his second and third goals of the game within the first 15 minutes of the half. Penn State retaliated with a goal of its own when Connor Maloney scored his second of the match on a Brian James-assisted free kick.

Ultimately, after a close game by all statistical measures, the Nittany Lions could not overcome the Terrapin’s offensive strength, and fell to Maryland 4-3.

Player Of The Game

Onward State’s own Drew Klingenberg played the biggest role in the match despite the loss. As a midfielder, Klingenberg was forced to stay back on defense for much of the game to cope with Maryland’s attack. Whenever he got the opportunity, however, Klingenberg sparked the Penn State counterattack. His opening goal set the pace for the match and inspired Penn State until the end.
