The USF Bulls failed to grab their first win of the season against No. 7 Maryland. USF fell behind early and failed to rally, losing 4-1. 

Maryland came out of the gate early forcing pressure against the Bulls defense. They first broke through in the 17th minute when sophomore forward Gordon Wild shot the ball past the Bull’s keeper, netting his fourth goal on the young season. 

The Bulls hit an equalizer three minutes into the second half when freshman Luis Garza put the ball in the back of the net for the second time in his collegiate career. However, after Garza’s goal, it was all Maryland for the remainder of the game. 

Less than 10 minutes after the game-tying goal, the Terrapins struck back when Amar Sejdic scored his first goal of the year. Maryland would go on to score two more goals before the final whistle blew, leaving USF winless after the first four games of the 2016 campaign. 

The Bulls (0-2-2) are back at Corbett Stadium on Thursday to clash with Jacksonville University at 8 p.m.
