Despite heavy rains and high winds, the ACC Tournament continued Wednesday with a pair of upsets in the quarterfinals.

MEN'S NEWS ...Despite heavy rains and high winds, the ACC Tournament continued Wednesday with a pair of upsets in the quarterfinals.

Sophomore Tony Tchani's goal with three minutes left gave No. 8 Virgina a 1-0 win over No. 6 Maryland.

"I thought, after all things considered, the ball actually moved on the ground OK," said Virginia coach George Gelnovatch. "The wind was a little bit of a factor. We all would have liked to play in better conditions, but these were certainly allowable conditions."

No. 2 North Carolina fell to No. 23 N.C. State on penalty kicks after their game ended 0-0.

Wolfpack goalie Chris Widman was outstanding during regulation and overtime and converted a penalty kick in the shootout and stopped All-ACC forward Billy Schuler's attempt to set up the deciding penalty from Alan Sanchez.

Colin Murphy's goal gave No. 17 Boston College a 1-0 win over No. 20 Duke in a third ACC quarterfinal involving Top 25 teams.

"I thought that we did very well on the defending side," said BC coach Ed Kelly. "We shut out Cole [Grossman] and [Ryan] Finley."

No. 23 Wake Forest, the top seed, got two goals from freshman Andy Lubahn and a goal from sophomore Luke Norman to defeat Clemson, 3-0.
