#4 Maryland Downs #13 Denver, 16-8, to Advance

On the program: "We are a young program, and when we started, we were happy just beating anyone. Once we could do that statistically, we looked to make some upsets. After that, we wanted to consistently generate upsets. Now that we have been doing that, we have gained some respect. This year was the first time we were able to go undefeated in the conference. For the past two years we've been co-champions in our conference and this was the first year we won it outright even though we were supposed to be in a rebuilding year. Obviously we're not happy with today's result, but we are happy with the progress of this team."

Denver Senior Midfielder Geoff Snider

On his performance in the game: "I definitely didn't have my best game today. I was a little bit off, and a lot of that offensive responsibility relied on Adam [Goodwin] and myself, and we just didn't do a good enough job. On the face-offs, my five or six jumps cost us. All around, I just didn't have one of my best games."

On the game: "It's a big mental game. There's a lot going on; it's exciting and nerve-racking. Once I settled into the game things turned around, but getting used to a new stadium, new officials, and a new team can be tough. I have to give them credit though, they played really well."

Denver Senior Midfielder Adam Goodwin

On the game: "I think like Coach Munroe said, nerves did play a part in the game today. But I just feel like they executed what they do really well, and Maryland just played a real great game. At the same time, we came here, and just didn't execute our game plan the way we should have. We didn't get things done on the offensive side, put enough pressure on Maryland, and committed too many turnovers, which led to Maryland playing a great game."
