Box Score

COLLEGE PARK, Md. - No. 22 California lost to No. 3/6 Maryland, 6-0, on Sunday night at Ludwig Field. The Golden Bears will return home with a 1-2-0 record, while the Terrapins improved to 2-0-1 after the nonconference match.

"Maryland was extremely good tonight in all phases of the game," Cal head coach Kevin Grime said. "On games like this you have to tip your cap to the opponent. We have a huge opportunity in front of us to learn and grow from this road trip. Throughout the totality of the weekend, we had some brilliant play to build upon."

Maryland outshot Cal, 20-4, for the game, including 8-2 in the first half, when the Bears allowed just one goal - to the Terps' John Stertzer at 36:36.

In the final 45 minutes, Cal gave up goals to Patrick Mullins (55:17), Schillo Tshuma (64:47), Tsubasa Endoh (69:37) and Jordan Cyrus (79:39 and 80:54).

Four Bears - senior forward Kyle Lunt, sophomore defender Bobby Sekine, senior forward John Fitzpatrick and junior forward Luis Fuentes - each recorded a shot.

Sophomore goalkeeper Kevin Peach, who got the start, allowed four goals and made two saves, while junior Robby Gogatz, who played the final 12:32 of the match, allowed two goals and made three saves.

Cal opens its home schedule when it hosts Central Florida at 4:30 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 7, on Goldman Field at Edwards Stadium. The match is also the first Cal men's soccer game that will appear on the Pac-12 Networks.
