Three former Maryland men’s soccer players played in the 2021 Concacaf Gold Cup.

Midfielder Eyrk Williamson saw the first action of any Terrapin in the tournament, coming on as a substitute in the United States’ opening matchup against Haiti. In 14 minutes he drew two fouls as the squad coasted to a 1-0 victory.

Defender Donovan Pines made his international debut against Martinique while Williamson earned his first start. Williamson assisted one of the United States’ six goals and helped the team advance to 2-0.

Pines made another appearance in the United States’ game against Canada on Sunday. After the United States scored within the first 20 seconds of the game, defender Walker Zimmer was injured and the Terp went into the game about 15 minutes in.

The United States defeated Canada, 1-0, to finish the first round undefeated. Terps Williamson and Dayne St. Clair are on the roster for the United States and Canada, respectively, but did not play in Sunday’s match.

St. Clair has yet to see the field for the Canadian National Team in this competition, but remains a top backup option at goalkeeper.

Both the United States and Canada advanced to the elimination rounds with the Americans claiming all nine points to take first place in Group B.
