Wake suffers first home loss in 35 games
Junior defender Mike Volk's first career goal as a Cavalier was the difference as the Virginia men's soccer team upset No. 2 Wake Forest, 1-0, on the road. Virginia's win snapped Wake's home unbeaten streak of 35 games, and was the first Cavalier victory in Winston-Salem since 2005.
Virginia improved to 4-1 overall and 1-1 in ACC play with the win, while Wake Forest's record dropped to 3-1-1 (1-1 ACC).
"All week we've been working on restarts, and we just really felt like we could score on a restart tonight," Virginia head coach George Gelnovatch said on the UVa Web site. "Statistically we won that battle, we out-shot them and out-cornered them. It was a great performance and we feel good about it. Everybody played a part in executing the game plan."
