Oct. 21, 2008
ELON, N.C.—Duke University sophomore Cole Grossman registered a goal and an assist to lead the Blue Devils to a 2-0 victory at non-conference foe Elon in men’s soccer action this evening. The road contest was the final one for Duke this season as it closes out its regular season with four straight home games.
Possession remained even throughout much of the first 30 minutes of the opening half. Both squads tried to build their attacks through the midfield, but were unable to find that finishing pass in the final third of the field as the Phoenix and Blue Devils combined for five shots and two on frame.
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - Maryland midfielder Jeremy Hall scored his tenth goal of the year as the sixth-ranked Terps men's soccer team defeated West Virginia, 1-0, on Tuesday night at Dick Dlesk Soccer Stadium.
West Virginia may have tallied the first shot in the contest, but Maryland (12-3-0) applied heavy offensive pressure throughout the first half. Hall battled a pair of Mountaineer defenders to get off the Terps first shot at 5:50, but he headed it into the hands of WVU keeper Zach Johnston. Six minutes later, Johnston lost control of the ball and Graham Zusi was issued a free kick inches outside the box, but his strike saw a similar fate and was shot down by a Johnston save.
DAVIDSON, N.C. - Junior forward Cody Arnoux scored two goals in 36 seconds to lead No. 1 Wake Forest (14-0-1, 4-0-1 ACC) to a 3-0 victory over Davidson (2-11-1, 1-3-0 SoCon) on Tuesday night in front of a school-record crowd of 1,921 at 1992 Team Field.
The Deacons controlled the game offensively, holding a 25-9 shot advantage, including taking 13 shots on goal. The Deacs had 10 corner kicks compared to five for the Wildcats.
CHARLOTTESVILLE – No. 19 Virginia and Longwood tied, 2-2, Tuesday night at Klöckner Stadium. Jimmy Simpson scored the two goals for UVa, his fifth and sixth of the year.
With its first draw of the season, Virginia’s record went to 8-4-1, while Longwood’s record is now 6-5-2.
GREENVILLE, SC - Patrick Murray scored the game-winning goal in the first overtime period to give Furman a 2-1 victory over Clemson in a men's intercollegiate soccer match at Greenville, SC Tuesday night.
With the win, Furman is now 10-5-1 overall, while Clemson falls to 4-7-2 this season. This was the first time since the 1999 season that Furman has defeated Clemson.
BLACKSBURG, Va. – The Virginia Tech (5-9-1, 0-6-0) men’s soccer team dropped a 2-1 decision to the Mountaineers of Appalachian State (8-7-0, 2-3-0) on Tuesday night at Sandra D. Thompson field. Freshman Emmanuel Akogyeram netted his sixth goal of the season for the Hokies while junior Stefan Caulfield made his sixth start in net for Tech.
“We need to capitalize on our scoring chances,” said head coach Oliver Weiss. “I feel the team put in a solid effort, but when you take 28 shots in the match you need to produce more than one goal.”
