Top-ranked Wake Forest extended its winning streak to 15 games with an 8-2 victory over visiting Virginia Tech before 3,246 fans on Friday.

The eight goals equaled the most by the Demon Deacons in an ACC game -- they scored eight against N.C. State in 1997 -- and gave them 15 goals in three ACC games this fall.

Cody Arnoux recorded the first hat trick of his career, scoring three goals within 10 minutes late in the second half, and Ike Opara scored two first-half goals in the battle of 2007 Men's College Cup finalists. The loss dropped Virginia Tech to 3-6-1 overall and 0-4-0 in the ACC.

BROOKS BREAKS OUT. In one of the great individual performances of the year, Michael Brooks scored four goals and had one assist in leading Clemson in a 5-3 upset win over fifth-ranked Maryland.

Three times the Terrapins went ahead, and each time the Tigers came back. They scored their last three goals in the last 12 minutes of the game. Clemson tied the score at 3-3 on Brooks' third goal of the game and went ahead 22 seconds later on Hassan Ibrahim's goal.

Brooks was modest about his feat.

"I dedicate tonight's performance to our team," he said. "We work so hard and it's paying off. I give all of my teammates the credit. We are a team. Greg Eckhardt could have easily scored one of the goals but instead he sent the pass to me and I was there to knock it in."

SURGING CAVALIERS.Virginia may have lost freshman star Chris Agorsor for the season with a knee injury, but the Cavs have another first-year sensation, the unheralded Tony Tchani, who scored his team-high eighth goal of the season on a penalty kick in the 85th minute to give Virginia a 1-0 win over North Carolina.

The win was the fourth in a row for the Cavs, who are now 3-0-0 in ACC play -- a sharp contrast to last season when they finished with one win in conference play.

"This game was another example of us grinding out a victory on the road," Virginia coach George Gelnovatch said. "We played with a lot of heart and we were organized and disciplined, which got us the win."

BUSH RECORD.Akron goalie Evan Bush tied a Mid-American Conference record for career shutouts with the 42nd shutout of his career in the Zips' 4-0 win over then-No. 23 Northern Illinois.
