MORNING BRIEFING: No. 2 Creighton draws on road
by Paul Kennedy, October 22nd, 2008 8AM

MOST COMMENTED

No. 1 Wake Forest romped before a record crowd at Davidson, but No. 2 Creighton was held to a 0-0 tie at Missouri State. In Tuesday night's other surprise, Virginia had to settle for a 2-2 tie with unfancied Longwood after blowing a late 2-0 lead. For all the Tuesday action ...

TUESDAY'S TOP 25 ACTION
1. Wake Forest (14-0-1) 3 at Davidson 0
2. Creighton (10-1-2) 0 at Missouri State 0 (OT)
6. Maryland (12-3-0) 1 at West Virginia 0
12. South Florida (9-3-2) 3 Florida Atlantic 0
22. Virginia (8-4-1) 2 Longwood 2 (OT)
24. Butler (11-2-2) 1 Eastern Illinois 0

DAVIDSON 0 WAKE FOREST 3
Junior Cody Arnoux scored two goals in 36 seconds in the first half to lead No. 1 Wake Forest over Davidson in front of a Wildcats' school-record crowd of 1,921 at 1992 Team Field. Zack Schilawski closed out the scoring early in the second half. The victory extends Wake Forest's unbeaten streak against non-conference opponents to 38 games.

MISSOURI STATE 0 CREIGHTON 0 (OT)
Creighton unloaded a season-high 12 shots on goal but was unable to find the back of the net at Missouri State. The tie moves Creighton's unbeaten streak to nine matches (7-0-2) and keeps the Jays unbeaten in Missouri Valley Conference play over the last two seasons. Redshirt freshman goalkeeper Nick Goldreich made his collegiate debut Tuesday, stopping four shots for the shutout. Creighton now takes 10 days off before returning to game action against Drake on Nov. 1.

REACTION: "In a lot of ways I felt like we played some of our best soccer tonight," said Creighton coach Bob Warming. "We had a lot of good combinations and moved the ball really well.  It was just one of those nights where we were kind of unlucky to not come away with a four or five-nothing victory."

WEST VIRGINIA 0 MARYLAND 1
Midfielder Jeremy Hall scored his 10th goal of the year off Graham Zusi's corner kick as the Terps were rewarded in Morgantown for their attacking effort in the first half.

REACTION: "We expected a tough game tonight and we got one," Maryland coach Sasho Cirovski said.  "I thought we played very composed and moved the ball around to get quality chances. WVU is a difficult team to penetrate and they have a terrific keeper ... the great goal by Hall was the difference in the game."

SOUTH FLORIDA 3 FLORIDA ATLANTIC 0
The Bulls put on a show in the second half by scoring three goals within 10 minutes. Freshman Sebastien Thuriere scored his first collegiate goal of his career in the 77th minute, Kevon Neaves followed five minutes later, and Armante Marshall scored out the scoring in the 85th minute.
 
REACTION: "It was a good team performance where a lot of guys contributed," said USF coach George Kiefer. "I think we scored three very good goals tonight. Sebastian's one from long range and Kevon bending it around the keeper was nice to see. It was a good game to bounce back."
 
VIRGINIA 2 LONGWOOD 2
Jimmy Simpson scored the two goals for UVa, his fifth and sixth of the year, but Longwood battled back on late goals by Brian Germain (rebound off his own shot off the post) and Nate Van Arsdale (header).

BUTLER 1 EASTERN ILLINOIS 0
Junior David Giarratana scored his first goal of the season in the 25th minute to lead the Bulldogs past Eastern Illinois. Junior Boris Gatzky's free kick struck the inside of the post, then was directed off the goalkeeper and to Giarratana, who scored.

Elsewhere ...

ADELPHI STREAK ENDS. Adelphi, one of the few Division I-only men's soccer programs still left, recovered from an 0-4-0 start to run off nine straight wins before falling to Syracuse, 3-2, on Spencer Schomaker's hat trick.

The Panthers struck first when Brazilian Patrick Figueiredo notched his 12th goal of the season in the 10th minute, John Koutsounadis also scored.
