Oct. 13, 2007
The No. 2 Wake Forest men's soccer team grabbed its third conference win of the season on Saturday night, defeating the NC State Wolfpack 4-0 at Spry Stadium.
With the win Deacons improved to 9-0-2 and 3-0-1 in the ACC while the Pack is now 4-5-3 and 0-3-1.
Zack Schilawski netted the game-winner in the 16th minute, grabbing a cross from Cody Arnoux to net a sweeping shot from the left top corner of the penalty area that tucked into the top right corner of NC State goal.
Arnoux and Corben Bone set up Schilawski for his second shot of the night in the 22nd minute, breaking through the Wolfpack defense to fire a dead center missile from the 15-yard mark.
Junior forward Patrick Nyarko scored 22:20 into the match for the Hokies and the No. 8 Virginia Tech men's soccer team established a new school record with an 11-match unbeaten streak after a 1-1 tie against Maryland at Ludwig Field on Saturday.
Tech (7-1-4, 1-0-3 ACC) earned its fourth tie of the season to extend the school's longest unbeaten streak to 11 matches, going 7-0-4 since Sept. 2. The Hokies earned their first-ever tie against Maryland and are now 0-5-1 all-time against the Terrapins.
In their third overtime match in the last four contests, the Hokies moved to 1-0-4 in extra time this season. Tech's four ties this season is already the second most in the program's 36-year history, trailing only the 2005 team that settled for five draws.
The Hokies are now 1-0-3 in the Atlantic Coast Conference and currently enjoy the school's second four-match ACC unbeaten streak since joining the conference in 2004. In addition to the 1-1 tie at Maryland, Tech defeated Clemson 2-1 in double overtime, and then earned consecutive 1-1 draws against top-five teams, Virginia and Wake Forest. In 2005, the Hokies had a 3-1 stretch with wins against North Carolina, NC State, and Virginia while settling for a tie versus Clemson.
