Rutgers men's soccer fell to Maryland 3-2, Tuesday October 4, 2022.

Rutgers men’s soccer couldn’t hold on to an early 2-0, as eighth ranked Maryland stormed back to win 3-2 to improve to 7-1-2 on the season, while remaining unbeaten in the Big Ten at 3-0-1. Rutgers drops to 5-2-4 on the year, 2-1-1 in the Big Ten.

 Rutgers jumped out an early 2-0 lead thanks to a pair of goals by MD Meyers in the 20th and 22nd minute at the Miller Family Soccer Complex in Piscataway. However three minutes later, Maryland was on the board when Hunter George scored his second goal of the year for the Terrapins.

The score would remain 2-1 Rutgers deep into the second half until Malcom Johnston netted his fifth goal of the year on an assist by Nick Richardson to tie the game at two in the 63rd minute.

Ten minutes later, Richardson and Johnston flipped the script as it was Richardson who caught a feed from Johnston and scored to put Maryland up front 3-2 with 12 minutes left in the game.

Rutgers will continue its home stand on Sunday, Oct. 9 against Indiana, for a 12 p.m. start.
