Amidst what has been one of the best seasons in program history so far, Maryland softball hit a road bump in its weekend series against the Nebraska Cornhuskers.

The Terps opened the series Friday with a 3-0 loss, managed their lone win 2-0 on Saturday and then lost the rubber match 4-0 on Sunday. The offense was only able to muster two total runs of support for its pitching staff, which put together a solid weekend.

Nebraska pitchers Sarah Harness and Courtney Wallace gave up just two earned runs in 20 innings, combining for an earned run average of 0.7.

This series came on the back of the Terps losing both of their games to Rutgers, meaning they have now lost four of their last five and are 4-7 in Big Ten play.

They’ll look to get back on track this weekend with a three-game series at Iowa. The Hawkeyes are currently 7-4 in the Big Ten and 25-15 overall.
