Rutgers women's soccer got back in the win column on Sunday afternoon with a beautifully taken Sara Brocious goal the difference in a 1-0 win over Maryland.
Following Thursday night's 2-0 loss at Penn State, Rutgers rebounded in what was a tough and at times gritty match. Playing against a Maryland team that did a good job keeping their shape and holding things tight defensively, it took a little bit of magic from Brocious with under three minutes left in the game.
Rutgers is now 10-1-0 (2-1-0 Big Ten) following the win over Maryland.
From 16 yards out and tilted on the right side of the penalty area, Brocious took a low-bouncing ball and one-timed it beautifully from her right-foot into the upper-90 for the game's only goal.

Brocious is a junior midfielder who was named to the Big Ten's player-to-watch list.
Against Iowa, there were some good signs from the Rutgers football offense. Just not enough of them.
Rutgers will hit the road next weekend for a pair of games at Northwestern on Thursday and then Purdue on Sunday.
