The University of Maryland men's soccer team remains atop the NCAA, after defeating Michigan in the quarterfinal round of the Big Ten men's soccer championship Sunday.

Junior George Campbell scored the game-winning goal in double overtime to give the Terps the 3-2 victory.

"We seem to have a flare for the dramatic this year. I love my team’s resiliency but I'm a little frustrated that we're making games this interesting,” head coach Sasho Cirovski said in a release. “Full kudos to Michigan tonight. To come out after playing yesterday with this much energy and to make this game into a dogfight, I have to give them full marks and full credit."

Sunday's win, extends Maryland's win streak to 13 on the season. The Terps haven't lost a game since October 31, 2015 - a stretch of 23 matches. 

Maryland faces Michigan State Friday at noon in the semifinals of the Big Ten Championship at Grand Park in Westfield, Indiana.
