Wake Forest steamroller rolls on

There's no stopping Wake Forest.

The No. 1 Demon Deacons beat Coastal Carolina, 5-0, on Tuesday night to give them five wins by a margin of 25-0 in their last five games -- 16-0 in the last three games, all on the road.

Wake is now 12-0-2, the best start in its history.

An overflow crowd of 612 showed up at Coastal's soccer field to get a glimpse of the nation's best offense, and that's just what they saw -- a glimpse.

Wake ran all over the Chants with their speed, putting the game away with three first-half goals.

"They have excellent team speed," Coast Carolina coach Shaun Docking told the Myrtle Beach Sun News. "They are extremely quick. They reminded me of our team we had in 2003.

"They put so much pressure on you, players have to drop in and help each other [and] it takes away from being able to get forward.

Lyle Adams scored the first goal off a corner kick by midfielder Sam Cronin in the 7th minute. Marcus Tracy followed with goals at the 24th and 33rd minutes.

Austin da Luz, son of Wake Forest women's coach Tony da Luz, and U.S. U-20 defender Julian Valentin completed the rout with goals in the second half -- the first of the season for both players.

Wake is averaging 3.07 goals a game, but it has been getting balanced scoring. Sophomore Cody Arnoux leads the Deacons with 10 goals. Tracy is second with six goals, followed by freshman Corben Bone with five.
