Three ranked ACC men's teams -- No. 4 Virginia, No. 9 Duke and No. 16 Virginia Tech -- were victorious in non-conference action. Virginia and Duke both broke open close games with Mount St. Mary's and UNC Wilmington, respectively, in the second half, while a goal after intermission was the difference in Virginia Tech's game at Richmond.

VIRGINIA-MOUNT ST. MARY'S (3-0). Virginia extended its unbeaten streak to five games, downing Mount St. Mary's, 3-0, before 1,046 fans on a hot night at Kloeckner Stadium thanks to goal by Ross LaBauex, Yannick Reyering and Will Hall.

The win didn't come easily as the score was 1-0 until the 86th minute when Jonathan Villanueva sent a cross that a sliding Reyering, making a run to the near post, knocked past the keeper for his ACC-high sixth goal of the campaign.
 
"We were able to accomplish several things tonight," said Cavs coach George Gelnovatch. "The guys who normally play a lot of minutes were able to get some rest and the guys who don't normally start had a chance to get some minutes and show what they can do."
 
UNC WILMINGTON-DUKE (0-5). Duke avenged a 1-0 loss to UNC Wilmington last season in Durham with a 5-0 win at the UNCW Soccer Stadium.

The Blue Devils led 1-0 at the half on a goal by Mike Grella. They put the game away with four goals in the final 45 minutes -- two by Paul Dudley and one apiece by graduate student Joshua Medcalf and Brad Ramsey.

Virginia's Reyering and Dudley share the ACC goalscoring lead with six goals.

RICHMOND-VIRGINIA TECH (0-1). Stefan Hock's s third goal of the season eight minutes into the second half gave Virginia Teach a 1-0 win at Richmond.

Senior goalkeeper Eric Sciocchetti was outstanding for Spiders, stopping 11 Virginia Tech shots.
