UMBC takes on Appalachian State as the Hampton Inn BWI Classic continues at Retriever Soccer Park on Sunday afternoon. The opening kick-off time is set for 1:00 p.m.

Retriever freshman red-shirt goalkeeper Phil Breno (Mount Airy, Md./South Carroll) made six saves as 11th-ranked UMBC (2-0-1) played No. 7 Maryland (1-1-1) to a 0-0 double overtime draw before a huge crowd at Ludwig Field on Friday evening.

UMBC extended its unbeaten streak to 13 straight (9-0-4), dating back to last season. The scoreless draw is UMBC's first since they battled Binghamton to a 0-0 2OT tie last October.

Senior forward Kay Banjo leads UMBC in the early going, with two goals and two helpers. Senior midfielder Geaton Caltabiano also has scored a pair of goals (both vs. LIU).

This will be the first meeting between the Retrievers and the Mountaineers.
