Boston College finds secret to beating Wake Forest

Well, Wake Forest can be beaten.

Indeed, the No. 1 Demon Deacons were thoroughly stymied by Boston College, whose 1-0 margin of victory on Saturday night didn't reflect its dominance.

Wake Forest had scored 25 goals in winning its last five games, but it didn't even off one shot on goal against BC, which improved to 6-0-0 in ACC play.

The Eagles took advantage of the wet conditions on their home field, scoring in the 21st minute when  Idan Shefler's free kick bounced over the head of a Wake Forest defender to star Alejandro Bedoya, who scored with a left-footed shot from 18 yards in the 21s minute.

The score could have been 4-0 at the half, but Shawn Chinn and Sherron Manswell (twice) failed to convert one-on-one chances.

Wake keeper Brian Edwards, who was called upon to make a season-high six saves, made his best stop of the evening in the second half on a low shot by Manswell.

Wake went into the game leading the nation in scoring, but BC shut down the Deacons, limiting them to three shots in the second half.

The key was BC's midfield, which was outstanding in frustrating Wake's short passing game, and Mike Konicoffand Chinn were effective in cutting off speedy Wake's flank play.

The Eagles are five points ahead of second-place Wake Forest with two ACC games -- at Clemson (Nov. 4) and against Virginia Tech (Nov. 9) -- left in regular-season league play.

With the loss, the Deacons are now 12-1-2 and 4-1-1 in the ACC.
