MOST COMMENTED

Top-ranked Wake Forest remained one of five unbeaten teams when it knocked off Massachusetts, 2-0, in a battle of 2007 Men's College Cup teams on Tuesday night. Nine Top 25 teams were in action. No. 12 Maryland beat No. 20 Charlotte, 2-1, in overtime. The only other Top 25 team to fall was South Florida, a 1-0 loser at DePaul. For all the Top 25 news ....
 
TUESDAY RESULTS (TOP 25)
1. Wake Forest (11-0-0) 2 Massachusetts 0
7. Louisville (9-1-2) 2 at Cincinnati 1 (OT)
10. South Florida (6-2-2) 0 at DePaul 1
12. Maryland (8-3-0) 2 20. Charlotte 1 (OT)

WAKE FOREST 2 MASSACHUSETTS 0
In a battle of 2007 Men's College Cup teams, defending champion Wake Forest moved to 11-0-0 with a 2-0 win over Massachusetts thanks to goals by Sam Cronin and Cody Arnoux on either side of halftime.
 
REACTION. "I think that we started off the game well," Wake coach Jay Vidovich said. "We moved the ball well, but just failed to finish in certain situations. The first goal was a great goal because we had to dig it out. We kept the ball alive off the corner kick and Sam Cronin put it in the back of the net."

CINCINNATI 1 LOUISVILLE 2 (OT)
Cincinnati native Bryan Kanu golden goal gave Louisville a 2-1 win at Cincinnati in Big East play. 
The Cardinals trailed until Freddie Braun's equalizer in the 65th minute.

REACTION. "We weren't the sharpest and it wasn't our best game," said Louisville coach Ken Lolla. "But I thought we battled through it and found a way to win."

DEPAUL 0 SOUTH FLORIDA 1
The combination of rainy conditions, a stingy DePaul defense and a timely goal by Steffen Vroom proved to be the answer for the Blue Demons in their upset win.
 
REACTION. "I thought we were unlucky today," said USF coach George Kiefer. "We hit the post and also we had a few chances where the ball got by the goalkeeper, but their field players were there to stop the ball. The team played well with the rain falling in a tough environment."

MARYLAND 2 CHARLOTTE 1 (OT)
Jeremy Hall scored the tying goal in the 62nd minute and set up Casey Townsend for the game-winner nearly six minutes into the first overtime to decide the battle of Top 25 teams.

REACTION. "This was a great response after a disappointing loss [against Clemson Friday night]," Maryland coach Sasho Cirovski said.  "It was a test if the mind, heart and body and we passed."

VIRGINIA 3 LIBERTY 0
Jimmy Simpson scored two goals and freshman Tony Tchani added a third goal -- his ninth of the season --  for the Cavaliers, who won their fifth consecutive contest.
 
REACTION. "We did ourselves a favor by scoring three quick goals," Cavs coach George Gelnovatch said. "We were able to take the air out of the game and play a lot of bodies."

BUTLER 0 INDIANA 2
Playing in a driving rain for most of the evening, Indiana (6-3-2) scored on a goal by Daniel Kelly just 11 seconds into the game -- the fastest goal ever by the Hoosiers -- and added an insurance score by Neil Wilmarth in the second half.

BROWN 1 BRYANT 0
Junior T.J. Thompson scored his first goal of the 2008 season to help the Brown over rising Division I program Bryant (1-12-1) at Stevenson Field.

Elsewhere ...

Penn suffered its first loss of the season when it lost to Lehigh, 2-1. Lehigh's Kyle Evans rocked a shot from 30 yards out, rattling off the left post and in, to decide the game in overtime.

UNBEATEN TEAMS
Wake Forest (11-0-0)
UIC (8-0-3)
Northwestern (9-0-2)
Saint Louis (4-0-5)
Loyola (Md.) (8-0-1)
