Golazo- Maryland Wins Big Ten Title After Corboz Buries Free Kick

From Pro Soccer Talk:

Mael Corboz made Maryland men Big Ten champions, and he did it with style.

The junior from New Jersey, a Rutgers transfer and former New York Red Bull Academy member, bent in this free kick from under 25 yards away to give the Terps a 2-1 lead over Indiana in the Big Ten championship game.

Corboz has 10 goals and 3 assists in 21 matches for Maryland this season after being an All-AAC member for the Scarlet Knights in 2013.

This is a heck of a way to win the Big Ten title. I hope this kid didn’t have to buy a drink for the rest of the season because this type of clutch goal deserves every accolade you can imagine.

College Soccer Has Quality Too!

The beauty of soccer is that at every age and skill level there is an opportunity to play and thrive. College soccer is an opportunity for those not ready for the pro level to extend their careers and hopefully find an opportunity to move to the next level at some point during or after their college tenure. There is some majestic work in these games and a lot of the time, credit is only given to the biggest teams in the land. More than just the Top 25 are capable of winning games and more than the Top 25 are capable of scoring some impressive goals. Check out the following…

Exhibit A: Bryant University works so hard to get themselves into overtime away from home at Buffalo. Overtime begins and this happens:

Exhibit B: Ohio Wesleyan scores an absolute screamer:

And there you have it. And that is just one weekend and two programs. As we progress in this column and the college scene starts to define itself, there will be more analysis and opinion thrown into this category. Reality is, I want you to give the college game a chance to begin to understand that there is some good soccer being played in parts of this country and it is worthwhile to give it a look!
