Junior midfielder Nico Colaluca's second goal of the evening 152 seconds into overtime gave Virginia, ranked No. 1 in the Soccer America Men's Top 25, a 2-1 win over No. 8 and previously unbeaten West Virginia Tuesday night in front of 2,171 fans at Klockner Stadium.

Colaluca knocked in Yannick Reyering's flick header from just inside the six-yard box to give the 8-0-0 Cavaliers the win, their third straight overtime victory.

Both teams had players sent off. West Virginia's Paul Cunningham was sent off in the 32nd minute. Virginia's Sean Hinkle was ejected a minute after Colaluca put the Cavs ahead when he scored on a well-executed sequence involving Adam Cristman and Jonathan Villanueva.

The Mountaineers tied the game in the 78th minute on New Zealand international Jarrod Smith's sixth goal. The loss was West Virginia's first in nine games.

TUESDAY ROUNDUP-MEN

Mark Buchholz and Dane Richards scored goals six minutes apart in the second half to lead No. 2 Clemson to a 2-0 victory over Longwood. The Tigers have won their first eight matches of the season for the first time since 1978.

No. 4 Dukefell from the unbeaten ranks when the Blue Devils were upset by UNC Wilmington, 1-0. Sophomore Will Friesinger scored the game's only goal for the visitors in the 60th minute. The Blue Devils fall to 6-1-1, while UNCW improves to 5-1-1.

Richmond sophomore Scott Loesser took a long ball, beat a defender and blasted a shot from about 20 yards out on the right wing inside the far post to give the Spiders a 3-2 victory over No. 16 Virginia Tech. Loesser also had assists on Richmond's first two goals.

Sophomore Stephen Bickford came off the bench to score the go-ahead goal in the 71st minute and followed with an assist on Scott Campbell's goal just a minute and a half later to lead No. 8 North Carolina to a 3-1 victory over VCU.

No. 25 Brown edged visiting Hartwick, 2-1, on defender Rhett Bernstein's tap-in in the 88th minute. Bernstein also scored the Bears' first goal, on a header in the 58th minute.
