No. 7 Maryland men’s soccer overpowers South Florida 3-1 on Monday

Amar Sejdic and Keegan Kelly also found the back of the net for the Terps (3-0-1), who moved their winning streak to three games as they begin a two-game road trip and conference play at No. 5 Indiana Friday night.

Wild’s first goal was set up by a determined Chris Odoi-Atsem who kept the play alive long enough to find the sophomore transfer for a beautiful back heel goal in the 17th minute.

After USF answered with a goal by Luis Garza off a rebound from Cody Niedermeier at 48:37, Sejdic scored his first goal of the year on a top-shelf strike from long distance in the 58th minute.

But the scoring didn’t end there.

Wild would score once again, his fifth goal this season and third in four days, on a fast break which Cody Albrecht jumpstarted in the 65th minute. Albrecht found Sejdic at the midfield who then served a world-class ball to a streaking Wild, who finished perfectly for the 3-1 advantage.

Kelly tacked on his first career tally with 3:06 to play on a 25-yard blast to the upper 90 to cap the Maryland offensive flurry at four.

“For the past three years we have struggled in this Monday night game following a huge Friday night win and we challenged our seniors and our team to come out with a really good performance and I thought we did just that,” head coach Sasho Cirovski said. “We needed to make sure we were sharp with the ball and also with our discipline and I thought we accomplished both of those feats. We scored some great goals today.”

Maryland travels to Indiana for an early-season marquee conference battle on Friday at 7 p.m. on the Big Ten Network.
