In the fourth minute, Brandt’s kick deflected off a Maryland defender and went into the back of the net to give NU an early lead. In the 37th minute, Brandt received a pass from Marissa Popoola before striking a clean shot past the Terrapin goalkeeper into the net.
Senior Aubrei Corder, making her school-record 76th start as goalkeeper, recorded two saves in 90 minutes of action. She earned her 27th career complete-game shutout (second-most in program history) and 33rd career win (tied for fourth-most in school history).
