No. 1 Wake Forest Upset

At the ACC tournament, Matt Poole converted a penalty kick in the second overtime as Virginia stunned top-ranked Wake Forest, 3-2, ending the Demon Deacons' 24-game unbeaten streak. Wake (18-1-1) had forced overtime on Danny Wenzel's goal with 1:36 remaining in regulation.

The fourth-seeded Cavaliers (11-7-1) will face second-seeded Maryland (17-3) in Sunday afternoon's final in Cary, N.C. The Terrapins defeated third-seeded Boston College, 1-0, on an own goal in the 78th minute for their 10th consecutive victory.

Very nice for the Terrepins.

On a related note (and because Goff has ignored them thus far) GMU men's soccer team defeated W&M 5-3 tonight to advance to the CAA championship game.

Is anyone from DC United watching/evaluating players from the ACC? Many of our MLS rivals seem to be able to draft starting players from this league.

Go Hoos!

Wow...Matt Poole - Langley High's best! Great job.

Also, UVA women won their first round NCAA game against army and the real upset, JMU women shocked Georgia in their first round and will play Wake Forrest next.

Great going Virgina teams!

Wow. Just wow.

Hate to say it but I still expect WF to win the NCAAs in a cakewalk.

It is amazing how many young American footballers are namesakes of famous people. Not only do we have a Julia Roberts and a John Mellencamp, but now there is a Natasha Richardson:

Speaking of Roberts, the U17 final is tonight, as far as people in North America are concerned. Both the US Soccer and FIFA sites will provide matchtrackers. The FIFA coverage may actually be more interesting, as it is provided using an idiom that is not identifiably British, American, Aussie, or anything else that I can think of.

The UVA-WVU match in Charlottesville tomorrow should be interesting. It is too bad that they have to meet so early in the tournament.

With regard to the GMU men, one question is whether they have a realistic chance for an at-large bid if they fail to beat Northeastern tomorrow.

Goff: Does AU's field hockey team stand a chance against Wake Forest in the NCAA first round today?

Wahoowa!

Is Georgia really that surprising? Those teams are always inconsistent even with all the talent they have. They have the talent to at least be the top of the SEC...
