Maryland wins 2-0 on first half goals by Abe Thompson and Domenic Mediate. Here's my take on this one. Very physical game...dirty at times...and lots of yellows handed out. Sasho was close to being tossed at one point when the ref (who was a real bonehead) gave the Md. team a yellow for stalling. Terrible call, because they were simply waiting for the ball boy to get them a game ball to put in play. Sasho started going ballistic, and nearly got tossed. Maryland took control right away at both ends of the field. The Terps back four was really really solid...I thought Stammler and Goodson did an excellent job of holding off Duke's Owoicho Adogwa who was dangerous. Trouble is for Duke, he was the only dangerous player in home whites today. But, Maryland's defense was rock solid. The Terps midfield also controlled the game...Herrera and Buete owned the center of the park. Palmer very solid in goal. Maryland led 2-0 at the half. The second half was pretty uneventful for both teams. It seemed like Duke was simply going through the motions in the second half, but I also believe they were "Rennie'd." Adogwa was Duke's only scoring threat the whole game, and with about 17 minutes left in the game, Rennie pulled him out. I'm sorry...the kid did not look tired, and he was having a good match...and Rennie yanks him. After that, Duke never even thought about threatening. Rennie made several subs, but early in the second half, Duke looked real tired...several players looked out of shape to me. Duke started two tall guys at center mid, Blake Camp and Chris Loftus....and they were not good....especially Camp who lost the ball repeatedly and looked like he was wearing lead boots. Loftus is tall, and that's it. Kyle Helton looked decent in the back for Duke...so did Danny Miller. There was a kid who played outside back for Duke last year who was pretty good...I think a national teamer...and he's not even listed on their roster. Anybody know what happened to that kid? Rennie just doesn't motivate his troops from what I've seen...and this Duke team just doesn't play with any passion. Senior Jordan Cila had one of those games where he just flat disappeared. This former national teamer is a huge underachiever IMO, and he was a huge non-factor today. I think Duke's best overall player is Ian Carey...the sophomore midfielder came off the bench and did some nice things...but why is he coming off the bench? Duke is not good....especially their coaching.
