Maryland coach Sasho Cirovski earns 400th win as Terps defeat No. 6 Michigan

COLLEGE PARK, Md. – The Maryland men’s soccer team topped No. 6 Michigan, 2-1, at the Legacy Center in Brighton, Mich. The win was head coach Sasho Cirovski‘s 400th at Maryland.

Seniors Mike Heitzmann and Paul Bin tallied for the Terps, who have now won two straight.

Cirovski, Maryland’s 28-year head coach, added another accomplishment to his illustrious career, which includes: 3 NCAA national titles, 9 College Cup appearances and 15 conference titles.

Cirovski’s two most senior players lifted him to the milestone victory on Thursday. Heitzmann and Bin have a combined 11 years of association with Maryland soccer, and their experience proved valuable as both tallied their first goals of the season.

“I am ecstatic with the result against a good Michigan team,” Cirovski said. “Our guys are starting to feel their connectivity and it is showing in our play on both sides of the ball. We benefited from the Michigan red card, but credit Michigan with a tremendous effort until the last minute. Nick Richardson had two fantastic services from right back, his natural position. To see our seniors in Mike and Paul score was a reward for their effort throughout the match.”

Maryland is off until next Friday when they take on Michigan State at Ludwig Field. The match will kickoff at 2 p.m.
