1. Duke finally beats Alabama A&M
Duke, ranked No. 2 in the Soccer America Men's Top 25, beat Alabama A&M for the first time in four meetings,
downing the Bulldogs, 4-1, in a game played in a steady rain on Tuesday
A&M is not the program it was in the early 1980s when it beat Duke
three times, but it countered the Blue Devils' opening goal with a goal
of its own from MfanaFuthi "Taribo"
Bhembe. Sandwiched around the Swazi's goal were goals by Tomek
Charowski and Pavelid Castaneda -- the first of the season for both
players -- to make it three goals in 123 seconds. Duke put the game
away with goals from Spencer
Wadsworth and Mike Grella
in the second half.
Blue Devil coach John Rennie will
attempt to set the ACC coaching record for most wins
in conference play on Friday when Duke hosts No. 9 North
Carolina. Rennie is tied with former Clemson coach I.M. Ibrahim
for ACC wins (90) and recently passed Ibrahim for the most
overall wins at an ACC school. Rennie now has 393. With Tuesday's
win, Rennie is also tied for fifth all-time in Division I with 436 wins.
#4 VIRGINIA-LONGWOOD (PPD). Implement
weather, which plagued action all across the Mid-Atlantic, forced the
cancellation of the non-conference match.
DAVIDSON 2 #19 VIRGINIA TECH 4. The
Hokies won their first straight game, getting goals from usual suspects
Patrick Nyarko (13th of the
season), Marcus Reed and Ben Nason, but it was Kevin McFadden's first score of the
season that sparked them when they needed it most. McFadden, who has
missed much of the season due to a bout with mono, came off the bench
to give Tech a 2-1 lead in the 45th minute.
#23 LEHIGH 4 PHILADELPHIA 0. The Mountain Hawks (12-1-1) pushed its
record-breaking unbeaten streak to 12 games. Senior Jim Morahan tied the single-season
shutout mark of 10 that Sam Bishop
set in 2003.
HOLY CROSS 2 #25 HARVARD 5. The
high-scoring Crimson collected its fifth straight victory. Freshman
sensation Andre Akpan led the
attack with two goals and one assist to give him eight goals and 11
assists in 14 games. After Harvard jumped out to a 3-0 lead, Crusader
star Josh Trott temporarily
gave hope to the Worcester faithful with two goals in 25 seconds.
