High-flying Virginia Tech ends Maryland's unbeaten streak

[ACC TOURNAMENT] Five days after it had its 15-game unbeaten streak snapped, Virginia Tech gave one of its most dominating performances of the season with a 3-0 win over Maryland Wednesday in the quarterfinals of the ACC Tournament.

Senior midfielder Ben Nason scored two goals and Ghanaian star Patrick Nyarko added the third to lead the Hokies past Maryland, which had a 10-game unbeaten streak of its own snapped with the loss.

Virginia Tech, which had never won a game in the ACC Tournament, limited Maryland to two shots on goal.

"It's a great thing any time you win a game in the ACC Tournament with a shutout against a ranked opponent," Hokie coach Oliver Weiss said. "The 4-vs.-5 match is traditionally a very tough match, so we're very pleased. I think if you look at our entire season, it may rank up there with one of our best performances."

Graham Zusi had a chance to tie the game for Maryland, but his free kick hit the near post late in the first half.

"This was a difficult loss for us," Maryland coach Sasho Cirovski said. "We worked very hard but not very smart. We expended a lot of energy on the attack and defense and we were worn down. Their first goal was a nice free kick by Nason and it is tough to comeback because Virginia Tech is a very poised team. We were unlucky as well. With another inch Graham Zusi would have scored on the free kick."
