MEN'S NEWS ...Three Soccer America Men's Preseason All-Americans -- UCLA's Brian Perk and Michael Stephens and Wake Forest's Ike Opara -- are among the 21 players named to the U.S. under-20 national team that will compete in the world championships in Egypt.

FC Dallas defender Anthony Wallace and Perk are the only players with prior U-20 World Cup experience.

Notre Dame is the only other team with two collegians on the team: Aaron Maund, who represented Trinidad & Tobago at the U-17 level, and Dillon Powers. Other U-20s expected to play during the '09 college season are Brian Ownby (Virginia) and Sam Garza (Denver).

Several other collegians, notably Sheanon Williams, who started for North Carolina, aren't playing in 2009 with the hope of earning a pro contract.

The U.S. U-20s will train in Larnaca, Cyprus, for a week, beginning Sept. 14, before traveling to Suez, Egypt. The USA will open against Germany on Sept. 26 before facing Cameroon on Sept. 29 and rounding out group play against South Korea on Oct. 2.

* Transfer midfielders Michael Farfan and Stephen McCarthy combined for a pair of first-half goals to lead North Carolina to a 2-1 win over Old Dominion in its final preseason tune-up Thursday at Fetzer Field.

McCarthy scored in the seventh and 31st minutes off corner kicks from Farfan for Carolina, ranked No. 1 in the Soccer America Preseason Top 25. McCarthy, the lone Tar Heel on the Soccer America Preseason All-American team, scored the goal in UNC's previous game, a 10 win over VCU.
 
The Heels open the 2009 regular season Tuesday against UNC Asheville at Fetzer Field.

* Canadian Julien Edwards' goal off a scramble in front of the goal in the 88th minute completed Drake's comeback and gave the Bulldogs a 2-1 win over No. 4 Indiana on Thursday evening at the National Soccer Festival. IU went ahead on Thursday evening at the National Soccer Festival. IU went ahead on Will Bruin's goal, but Evan Harrisonevened the score in the 58th minute.

Edwards was one of four Drake players, along with Nick Foster, Hunter Kennedy and Garrett Webb, who helped the Des Moines Menace with its conference title in the PDL.

Elsewhere ...

-- No. 5 Wake Forest exploded for three second-half goals from Corben Bone, Ike Opara and Chris Estridge to win, 3-0, at Furman on Thursday night at Stone Soccer Stadium.

-- Five different Bluejays scored for No. 6 Creighton  in its 5-0 victory over the University of Nebraska club team.

-- No. 22 Tulsa had a 17-6 advantage in shots but had to settle for a 0-0 tie with city rival Oral Roberts.

* Oklahoma City University's Brian Harvey, the most combined men's and women's wins (576) of any soccer coach in NAIA history, has been selected for induction into the NAIA Hall of Fame. Harvey first came to the United States in 1968 to play fort the NASL's Dallas Tornado.
