Terps Top Men’s ACC Soccer

Maryland scored on a penalty kick in the first half and then held on for a 1-0 win over North Carolina to win the ACC men's soccer championship game on Sunday in Cary, NC.

The second-seeded Terps scored the game's only goal on a penalty kick by Matt Kassel in the 14th minute.

The top-seeded Tar Heels played the final 55 minutes without All-ACC midfielder Michael Farfan, who got a red card in the 35th minute for tackling John Stertzer.

A UNC handball in the penalty area lead to Kassel's penalty kick and Maryland's goal. The Terps won their third ACC title in nine years.

The Tar Heels, who won the title in 1987 and 2000, entered the game unbeaten in ACC play and lost for the first time in 13 games.
