Maryland once again came out firing, as Graham Zusi notched the first shot of the contest from a Doug Rodkey pass on the near sideline wide of the goal in the first minute and a half.

Shriver, who took over the ACC goal-scoring lead with his 10th and 11th goals on the season, put the Tar Heels on the board with an unassisted strike in the 20th minute and followed with what proved to be his fourth game-winner of the year in the 39th minute.
RALEIGH, N.C. – The NC State men’s soccer team defeated visiting Presbyterian, 5-1, Tuesday night at the NC State Soccer Stadium. After a sluggish start, the Wolfpack (4-7-1) would score three goals in just over a 10-minute span towards the end of the first half, and Presbyterian (2-10-1) was forced to play a man down the final 59 minutes due to a red card.
NC State first got on the scoreboard in the 32nd minute. Junior Ronnie Bouemboue was fed a long ball, but was fouled by Presbyterian’s Tommy Rodriguez preventing a breakaway, and Rodriguez was issued a red card.

“It was a fun and an exciting match,” said head coach Oliver Weiss. “I give the team a lot of credit. We were down 1-0 and we fought hard and created chances. We have had a lot of hurdles to jump this season and maybe we still have a little fight left.”
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - Head coach Jay Vidovich picked up his 200th career victory and five different Wake Forest players scored goals as top-ranked Wake Forest (13-0, 4-0 ACC) defeated UNC Greensboro 6-0 (5-8-1, 1-2-0 SoCon) on Tuesday night at Spry Stadium.
"I owe a lot of thanks to the great players I've had here at Wake Forest," Vidovich said. "This senior class has accounted for about 50 wins on their own. Most of my success can be attributed to the players I've had the privilege to coach."
DURHAM, N.C.—Florida Atlantic senior Shire Standnes tallied a goal with 2:22 left in the first overtime to lift the Owls to a 2-1 upset victory over Duke University in non-conference men’s soccer action this evening at Koskinen Stadium.

They came out and played very well tonight. They outworked us, they were tougher than us mentally and physically and they ultimately deserved to win.”
