After falling to High Point last Friday in a stunning 2-1 loss, Maryland men’s soccer only dropped one ranking spot, from No. 7 to No. 8 in the nation. The team followed that up with a dominant performance against Michigan State, winning 1-0. The game’s only goal scorer was defender William Kulvik, who was named Big Ten Defender of the Week on Tuesday.
The Norwegian native and sophomore commenced play on an explosive note, where he potted a goal off a well-placed corner kick. Only his second of the season, this one came at an opportune time in a much-needed bounce-back victory. The award is his second of the year, with his first coming the week of Sept. 4.
For the entirety of the game, Maryland held Michigan State without a single shot attempt, another testament to both Kulvik and the Terps’ defense as a whole.
Kulvik earned All-Big Ten freshman team honors in 2021, but has grown and developed even further. While he only started ten games last season, he has already started 14 this season and has notched nearly 300 more minutes.
Maryland will travel to Bloomington on Sunday afternoon, where it will battle No. 21 Indiana in the regular season finale and look to etch another mark in the win column.
