Maryland ended the UVa men's soccer teams season as the Terps downed the Wahoos 2-1 in the College Cup semifinals.

UVa forward, Darius Madison said, "it was a great opportunity. It sucks that we lost but overall it was a great experience, just wish we could've won."

"After the game, I just stood there looking around taking it all in," said UVa's Todd Wharton. "It's a terrible reason to lose like this but we made it here as a really young team."

The Cavaliers had one last shot in the 88th minute to tie it up when they were down 2-1. Brian James fired a low shot that was stopped by a diving Zack Steffan with one hand, sealing the Terps victory. 

"There 205 division 1 college soccer teams." said Virginia head coach George Gelnovatch. "No matter how far you go only one is happy. Getting to this point, getting to the College Cup and in my opinion playing as well as we did tonight with some of the guys returning, we should be back here."

After Marcus Salandy-Defour was taken down in box, Todd Wharton converted his sixth goal of year to cut the deficit to 2-1 in the 77th minute.

Maryland's Patrick Mullins was responsible for both of Maryland's goals against the 'Hoos (12', 72'). In the three times both teams met this season, the Terp forward scored 4 goals against the Cavaliers.  

The Cavaliers finish their 2013 season with a record of 13-6-5.
