Oct. 6, 2007
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - The No. 4 ranked Virginia men's soccer team recorded its first ACC win of the season, downing North Carolina 2-1 Saturday night at Klöckner Stadium. The Cavaliers got goals from Yannick Reyering (Mettingen, Germany) and Chris Tierney (Wellesley, Mass.), as they improved to 7-1-2 on the year, 1-0-2 in the ACC.
"I told the guys that to get a win tonight we needed to do the extra things," said head coach George Gelnovatch. "We got several of those plays, like Neil Barlow saving a goal off the line and Chris following up a shot and getting the second goal off a rebound. In the conference standings, we needed to get three points tonight. We got that and also got some momentum heading into Clemson next week."
RALEIGH, N.C. - Visiting Radford used a goal in the first minute of the contest and a second with five seconds remaining to defeat the NC State men's soccer team, 2-1, Saturday afternoon at Method Road. After falling behind early, the Wolfpack (4-4-3) tied the score in the 70th minute, but just as the game was heading for overtime, the Highlanders (5-4) found the gamewinner as time was winding down.
Radford jumped on the scoreboard first just 45 seconds into the contest. James Leith took a deep throw-in and the ball rolled all the way across the field where Radford's Davor Husadzinovic tucked the ball into the net.
