Sept. 24, 2008
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - Freshman center back Sheanon Williams' late unassisted goal proved to the game-winner Wednesday, as No. 15 North Carolina claimed a 2-1 victory over Elon at Fetzer Field. Senior forward Brian Shriver also scored for the Tar Heels, who got back in the win column following their first loss of the season last weekend at Boston College.
In addition to the offensive output from Williams and Shriver, senior goalkeeper Jacob Wescoe made five saves for the Tar Heels (6-1-1) and preserved the win with a penalty kick stop in the 86th minute.
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - Freshman Luke Norman's goal in the 23rd minute lifted No. 1 Wake Forest (7-0-0, 1-0-0 ACC) to a 1-0 victory over Appalachian State (5-2-0, 0-0-0 Southern Conference) on a chilly Wednesday night at Spry Stadium.
"I'm happy we got the result we were looking for," head coach Jay Vidovich said. "We got to play a lot of people, so hopefully we'll be ready for our next match. We're in a tremendous stretch right now going from California to playing a good Appalachian State team and now heading off to Maryland."
RALEIGH, N.C. – The NC State men’s soccer team dropped its first home game of the season Wednesday night, losing to High Point in overtime, 2-1. After the Panthers (4-3-1) started the scoring off in the 53rd minute, the Pack (1-5-1) responded with a goal in the 58th minute. The two squads would play out the remainder of the half without a goal, and High Point would get the decider with just 59 seconds to go in the first overtime period.
Neither team found the back of the net in the first half, but NC State had two chances that were both saved at the last second by a High Point defender. Chrystel Bakong in the 15th minute and Stanley Mathurin in the 44th minute each put a header passed the keeper, but each shot attempt was saved by the Panthers at the last second.
