Before the Maryland women’s soccer match last Thursday against George Washington, the Terps came together to take a picture with a sign that said “We Play For 3.”

And just before kickoff, a moment of silence was held to honor the memory of Cincinnati women’s soccer player Ally Sidloski.
Sidloski died in May, drowning at the age of 21, having recently completed her sophomore soccer season.

Maryland players Hope Lewandoski, Loren Sefcik and Brooke Weston, all Ohio natives, played with Sidloski when they were younger.

“She really was just the most incredible person,” Lewandoski said of Sidloski. ”I trained with her during the summers, I trained with her during winter break … it’s just absolutely heartbreaking the tragedy that happened.”
