Three ACC powers fall to unranked teams
by Paul Kennedy, September 30th, 2009 8:30AM



MEN'S NEWS ... Tuesday was another rough night for Top 25 teams. Three ACC teams -- No. 3 Maryland, No. 4 Wake Forest and No. 14 Boston College -- all lost to unranked opponents.

-- Despite playing the last 49 minutes with 10 players, George Mason beat No. 3 Maryland, 2-0, before 2,781 fans. Victor Freeman scored the first goal and redirected the ball for Draymond Washington to head home for the second goal. The Patriots, who had not beaten Maryland since 2001, lost midfielder Ryan Gracia to a red card in the 41st minute.

-- Evan James, Jennings Rex and Owen Darby scored to give visiting Charlotte a 3-1 win over Wake Forest, snapping the Demon Deacons' 46-game unbeaten streak against non-conference opponents. "This was a tremendous result," said Charlotte coach Jeremy Gunn. "We played great soccer tonight and we showed people what we are capable of as a soccer program. Wake Forest has been one of the bench mark programs in college soccer.

-- Freshman Emery Welshman scored his first collegiate goal in the 10th minute to give Siena a 1-0 win over Boston College for its first victory ever over an ACC team.
