[MEN'S TOP 25 ACTION] Pat Phelan quickly made up for lost time. After going 65 games at Wake Forest without scoring a goal, the senior defender scored twice in the first six minutes on Tuesday to lead No. 2 Wake Forest to a 5-0 win over Appalachian State.

After tying its last two games and falling out of the top spot in the Soccer America Men's Top 25, the Demon Deacons (8-0-2) rediscovered their winning ways with a blowout.

Phelan scored the first goal of his career in the second minute, converting a penalty kick, and followed up in the sixth minute with a second goal, scoring off a cross from Austin da Luz.

Da Luz also assisted on goals by Cody Arnoux and Zack Schilawski to post three assists, the most for one Deacon in a game in more than a year.

VIRGINIA TECH-VMI (8-0). No. 12 Virginia Tech extended its unbeaten streak to 10 matches, tying the school record for the longest unbeaten streak set in 2005. Ghanaian Patrick Nyarko opened the scoring in the 20th minute with his 28th career goal.

FLORIDA ATLANTIC-SOUTH FLORIDA (1-1). No. 20 USF fell behind for only the third time this season when the Owls' Gianni Piccoletti placed a header past goalkeeper Diego Restrepo in the 17th minute. The Bulls woke up and tied the score on defender Yohance Marshall's first goal of the year just before the end of the first half.
