NC State men’s soccer travels to Maryland for a 7 p.m. kickoff on Friday night against the eighth-ranked Terrapins.
The Wolfpack (7-4-4, 2-4-3 ACC) brings a three-game winning streak to College Park after a 4-1 win over Appalachian State on Oct. 29. The Pack has knocked off the Mountaineers, Virginia Tech, and Liberty since giving up a halftime lead to No. 2 Notre Dame on Oct. 19.
Senior midfielder Nazmi Albadawi has been a major contributor in those wins, since returning from an injury that sidelined him for much of October. Albadawi has three goals and two assists in the Pack’s last two matches.
Nick Surkamp and Alex Martinez have climbed near the top of the ACC’s stat leaderboards. Surkamp currently sits third with seven goals on the year, trailing only Emil Ekblom of Syracuse and Maryland’s Patrick Mullins. Martinez ranks second with eight assists, three back of Boston College’s Zeiko Lewis for the conference lead.
