WAKE FOREST 6 UNC GREENSBORO 0
Coach Jay Vidovich picked up his 200th career victory and five different Wake Forest players scored goals as top-ranked Wake Forest crushed UNCG on Tuesday night at Spry Stadium.

Cody Arnoux scored twice, Ike Opara, Zack Schilawski, Sam Cronin and Alfredo Rodriguez-Allen also scored in the win, which stretched the Deacons' home unbeaten streak to 29 games, the seventh longest home unbeaten streak in NCAA history.

REACTION: "I owe a lot of thanks to the great players I've had here at Wake Forest," Vidovich said. "This senior class has accounted for about 50 wins on their own. Most of my success can be attributed to the players I've had the privilege to coach."

MARYLAND 2 LEHIGH 1 (OT)
MidfielderJeremy Hall served a ball to Casey Townsend for the game-winner in overtime for the second home game in a row. Lehigh had gone ahead on a goal by Patrick Cucci in the 53rd minute, but the Mountain Hawks were reduced to 10 men when Daniel Odenwelder was ejected with 25 minutes to play. Omar Gonzalez's deflected shot from nearly 40 yards evened the score in the 85th minute.

REACTION:  "We played some of our best soccer in the first half and had nothing to show for it," Maryland coach Sasho Cirovski.  "We gifted them a goal and had to buckle down to the win the game, but we did...we showed a lot of resilience and character. You have to give Lehigh credit for their commitment and effort tonight."

WILLIAM & MARY 1 NORTH CAROLINA 4
Brian Shriver registered his second straight multi-goal game, scoring a pair of first half goals, and Garry Lewis and Alex Dixon followed with second-half tallies for the Tar Heels.

UC SANTA BARBARA 5 UC RIVERSIDE 1
Spaniard Nick Pererascored two goals as UCSB scored a season-high in goals. Fellow senior Chris Pontius scored his 10th goal of the season to give the Gauchos the lead. Another senior, Alfonso Motagalvan, converted a penalty kick, and juniorDavid Walkerclosed out the scoring.

DRAKE 1 WESTERN ILLINOIS 2 (OT)
Jona Andrade's breakaway goal in the second overtime allowed Western Illinois to stun Drake, 2-1. Kevin Shroutgave Drake a 1-0 lead on a free kick in the first half, but Western Illinois tied the match in the 56th minute on a goal by sophomore Cosimo Patano.

REACTION: "It was awful disappointing," said Drake coach Sean Holmes. "Western Illinois is a very good team, but I thought we dominated for the better part of three periods. As has been our pattern, we haven't turned position opportunities into goals. It is our inability to finish off plays that has been costly."

GEORGETOWN 1 AMERICAN 4
The Hoyas went ahead on a goal by Scott Larrabee but a penalty kick and quick red card made it a difficult contest for GU in the local rivalry. Phil Purdy, Anthony Moy, Jack Scott and Luis Martinezscored for AU.         

COMEBACK OF THE YEAR. Division II Wisconsin-Parkside recorded the comeback of the year when it came back from 4-0 down in the last 23 minutes to tie Drury, 4-4, in a Great Lakes Valley Conference game.

Spencer Burstenscored the first two goals, Renaldo Vega made it 4-3 in the 85th minute and Dave Mercerconverted a penalty kick with 48 seconds left in regulation.

CORRECTION.UCLA made the 2007 NCAA Division I Tournament, advancing to the second round. It was incorrectly reported in Tuesday's Morning Briefing that the Bruins, who finished with a .500 record, did not get a bid.
