1. Duke dumps reeling UNC on own goal
October 23rd, 2006 8:21AM



An own goal gave No. 2 Duke a 1-0 win over North Carolina before 6,549 fans at Koskinen Stadium on Friday night and remain in first place in ACC men's play with a 5-1-1 record.

The struggling Tar Heels are winless in five games and have been shut out in three straight games for the first time since 1982. The only score of the match came in the ninth minute when Carolina defender Ted Odgers redirected a Zach Pope cross into the back of the net.

Senior forward Adam Cristman registered the first hat trick since 2000 by a Cavalier to lead No. 4 Virginia to a 3-1 win over No. 19 Virginia Tech in front of a record crowd of 2,711 fans at the Hokie Soccer Stadium. Virginia, which remains in second place in the ACC behind Duke, snapped Tech's five-game winning streak.

MUSTANGS BOUNCE BACK. Top-ranked SMU bounced back from a 1-1 tie with South Carolina Wednesday night to soundly defeat Memphis, 3-0, Saturday afternoon in Memphis.

Sophomore Ryan Mirsky connected on a 30-yard shot for his first goal of the season, and Chase Wileman added two goals in the second half. The first came on an assist from U.S. U-20 goalie Steve Sandbo playing in the forward position. Sandbo has been unable to supplant Matt Wideman in the SMU goal this season.

PAC-10 LEADERS. California beat Stanford, 2-0, in a top-of-the-table Pac-10 clash to extend its lead over the Cardinal to five points. Pat Marion and Jacob Wilson scored for the Bears, who won their fifth straight games.

Ely Allen and George John scored in the first 18 minutes to lead Washington to a 2-0 over UCLA, snapping the Bruins' six-game unbeaten streak.

REGULAR-SEASON CHAMPS. Pavle Dundjer's two goals guided UIC to a 2-0 win over UW-Green Bay. The Flames clinched their first Horizon League regular-season championship since 2000.

Lehigh clinched the Patriot League regular-season title with a 1-0 win at Colgate on John O'Reilly's free kick from 25 yards. The Mountain Hawks are unbeaten in 13 straight games.

Stetson beat Jacksonville, 1-0, on Victor Webb's goal to earn the top seed in the Atlantic Sun and give the program its first undefeated conference season.

Binghamton clinched the America East regular-season title with a 0-0 tie with Vermont and the top seed for the conference tournament, which begins next Saturday.
