The 2020 MLS is Back Tournament started almost two weeks ago, and a few Maryland men’s soccer alums have made plays on the big stage in Orlando.
Of the 14 Terps taking part, Zac MacMath, Graham Zusi and Eryk Williamson have made key differences throughout the group stage.
In goal for Real Salt Lake, MacMath has posted two clean sheets — raising his total on the season to three. With MacMath in net, Real Salt Lake has been undefeated through four games.
U.S. men’s national team mainstay and Sporting Kansas City defender Graham Zusi had one of the biggest individual efforts of any Terp so far, as he put a game-winning goal in the back of the net during extra time against the Colorado Rapids on Friday.
The Portland Timbers remain as one of the few undefeated teams left and have already clinched a spot out of the group stage. Midfielder Eryk Williamson has gotten some quality run in the MLS is Back Tournament, having started both games and tallying an assist on Saturday in a 2-1 win over Houston.
