COLLEGE PARK, MD. - Seniors Katie DeTuro and Jazmine Reeves both scored to propel the Virginia Tech women's soccer team to a 2-0 road win against No. 21 Maryland.
DeTuro got the Hokies (7-1-1) on the board first by heading in a Kelsey Loupee corner kick in the 38th minute. In the 88th minute, Reeves found herself one-on-one with Maryland (5-3-0) goalkeeper Rachelle Beanlands after a well-placed pass by Murielle Tiernan. Reeves ripped the shot past Beanlands for the goal. The goal moved Reeves into sole possession of sixth place among Virginia Tech's all-time goal scorers with 21 career goals.
Just after halftime, Maryland had a golden opportunity to tie the game up after a penalty kick was awarded because of a Virginia Tech handball in the box. Senior goalkeeper Dayle Colpitts proved clutch by guessing correctly on the shot and making the save to keep the Hokies on top.
