Slumping Navy shocks West Virginia with late winner

[MEN'S TOP 25 ACTION] Navy traveled to West Virginia with a three-game winless streak and had not scored for more than 300 minutes, but the Middies shocked the No. 21 Mountaineers, 1-0, on junior Adam Pennington's goal in the 85th minute.

"We were very fortunate to win this game, as we absorbed every thing that West Virginia had in the last 20 minutes," Navy head coach Rich Miranda. "Our defense was tired and we lacked some communication during that time, but we are very happy to get the win. That's the game of soccer. Usually, it only takes one and we got the break we needed."

Pennington's tally snapped a 412-minute scoreless streak for the Mids, dating back to a 3-0 win over Philadelphia University, a stretch that spanned parts of five games.

A long pass by Ryan Trespalacios sprung Pennington, who got in behind the defense and calmly slid the shot into the net past Mountaineer goalie Zach Johnson.

"Tres hasn't seen a whole lot of action this year," said Miranda, "but I had a gut feeling about him. He had been practicing very well and he made a great play tonight."

WAKE FOREST-UNC GREENSBORO (8-0). The No. 1 Deacons handed UNCG its worst loss in almost 30 years. The game was over after 15 minutes with Wake already up 3-0 on a pair of goals by Cody Arnoux and a goal by Jaime Franks. Wake's win comes on the heels of back-to-back blowouts, a 5-0 win over Appalachian State and a 4-0 win over N.C. State.
 


VIRGINIA-FLORIDA ATLANTIC (4-2). U.S. U-20 Jonathan Villanueva scored his first goal of the season on a curling free kick and set up Jason Kim for the second goal for No. 8 Virginia, which opened a five-match homestand. Matt Ayotte added a pair of goals in the second half after FAU's Markus Kaercher was sent off.

BOSTON COLLEGE-PROVIDENCE (0-1).
Freshman Alex Redding returned to his hometown of Newton, Mass., and scored the winning goal in the 35th minute to lift Providence past No. 9 Boston College.

SOUTH FLORIDA-DEPAUL (2-0). First-half goals by German Simon Schoendorf and freshman Tony Taylor provided the No. 20 Bulls with all the offense they would need to turn away DePaul in a Big East match.
