Oct. 11, 2008
DURHAM, N.C. - Behind senior forward Brian Shriver's second multi-goal game of the season and a stout defensive effort, No. 16 North Carolina posted a 2-0 win at No. 24 Duke Friday at Koskinen Stadium. The Tar Heels (9-2-1, 2-2-0 ACC) escaped with a win in Durham for the first time since 2000 and also snapped a two-match Atlantic Coast Conference skid in the process.
The victory also extends Carolina's lead in the Carlyle Cup, the all-sports competition between the rival Tar Heels and Blue Devils, to 3-0.5.
BLACKSBURG, Va. - The No. 10 Maryland men's soccer team out-shot Virginia Tech, 22-3, on Friday night en route to a 4-0 win in ACC action on the road at Thompson Field.
Maryland controlled play for a large majority of the first half and left Virginia Tech without a shot thru 45 minutes of play. The Terps amassed ten shots, including four on goal, in the period. Maryland picked it up a notch with ten minutes remaining in the period as Rodney Wallace nearly missed two shots on goal. In the 37th minute, Wallace had a low drive sail across the box and just past the far post off a Matt Kassel pass. Approximately two minutes later, it was Jeremy Hall that chipped in a pass to Wallace, this time in the middle of the box, and Wallace's shot ricocheted off a Hokie defender.
CHARLOTTESVILLE – Chase Neinken’s goal in the 88th minute broke a scoreless tie, and No. 18 Virginia defeated Clemson, 1-0, Friday night at Klöckner Stadium. UVa won its sixth-straight game and remained unbeaten in Atlantic Coast Conference play.
“Clemson played very direct and I think we dealt better with that in the second half,” Virginia head coach George Gelnovatch said. “We were better at possessing the ball and we were able to wear them down and eventually score.”
