No. 1 Wake Forest isn't concerned with ranking

No. 1 Wake Forest looks to extend its best start in more than 20 years when it hosts No. 24 Maryland on Saturday night at Spry Stadium.

The Demon Deacons have been without U.S. U-20 defender Julian Valentin, who was injured in preseason practice and has yet to play this season, but the Wake has been solid with fill-in Justin Lichtfuss playing centerback along side senior Pat Phelan, another former U.S. U-20.

Wake is 6-0-0, its best start to the season since 1984.

Freshman Corben Bone has lived up to his billing as one of the nation's top freshman. The Texan leads Wake with four goals and three assists. Sophomore Cody Arnoux is second with four goals and one assist and seen increased playing time in recent weeks.

Wake Forest coach Jay Vidovich says the Demon Deacons aren't worried about their No. 1 ranking.

"We know that that isn't going to win us a championship trophy," he told the Old Gold & Black earlier this week. "We have a long-term picture of our goals."

Wake reached the Men's College Cup for the first time in 2006 and hopes to return the finals in 2007 when they will held in Cary, N.C.
