ACC powers take it on the chin

Last week began with ACC teams ranked 1-2-3-4 in the Soccer America Men's Top 25, but only No. 1 Wake Forest emerged unscathed,

Then-No. 2 Duke was tripped up by Villanova, 1-0, on Friday in the Duke/adidas Classic. A crowd of 3,459 watched the Blue Devils outshoot Villanova, 25-4, but they were unable to beat keeper Jason Friel, who made 10 saves on the evening.

Mike Seamon set up Wildcat teammate Mike Del Guercio for the only goal in the 12th minute.

Then-No. 3 Virginia got a rude welcome from SMU on its first trip to Texas in 20 years. The Mustangs crushed Virginia, 5-1, en route to the title at their Mi Cocina Classic.

SMU got goals from Scott Corbin and Ryan Mirsky to go ahead, 2-0, at halftime. Five minutes after Virginia cut the deficit on Neil Barlow's goal, Leone Cruz scored to make the score, 3-1.

Brazilian Bruno Guarda and Richard Oliva added late goals.

Then-No. 4 Maryland fell at home to West Virginia, 1-0, in overtime.

The Mountaineers stunned the 5,022 fans at Ludwig Field -- the fifth-highest history --  when Dan Stratford scored 35 seconds into the first overtime, nailing home a cross from Mike Anoia seconds after the opening kick in the extra session.

Duke, Virginia and Maryland all rebounded to win on Sunday.

Wake Forest stayed No. 1 thanks to a big weekend from freshman Corben Bone. The Texan scored two goals in a 3-1 win over Akron and added the third second-half goal in a 3-0 victory over Bradley.
