MORNING BRIEFING: Wake Forest puts on show

If there were any doubts about who is the top team in men's soccer, Wake Forest put them to rest Sunday when it won the battle of the last two national champions with a 6-2 win over UC Santa Barbara before 7,408 at UCSB's Harder Stadium.

Corben Bone and Marcus Tracy were the offensive stars of the night for Wake Forest, with each player scoring a goal and adding two assists.

Bone scored the equalizing goal late in the first half and added two second half assists, while Tracy assisted on Bone's goal and also assisted on the game-winning goal from Sam Cronin. Tracy added a goal of his own later in the second half.
 
"It was a great crowd and great atmosphere tonight," Wake coach Jay Vidovich said. "We were disappointed in giving up an early goal, but our reaction to it was excellent. We got a crucial goal late in the first half that gave us some momentum in the second half. We played great attacking soccer in the second half and every player that played in the game made a positive contribution."

WHITE ENDS DROUGHT. Goals have not come easy for the 2007 Soccer America Player of the Year Hermann Trophy winner O'Brien White and his UConn teammates.

White scored each of the Huskies' first two games but then went scoreless for fur games before striking late in their 2-1 win over Cincinnati on Sunday. The win gave UConn a 4--0-3 record.

The goals by White and fellow Jamaican Akeem Priestley were only the eighth and ninth goals scored by UConn in seven games.
