Nuzzolese and Stengel team up to earn Deacons sweep

[UCF-WAKE FOREST] A cracking goal from Rachel Nuzzolese off a nifty combination with Soccer America Preseason All-American Katie Stengel gave No. 23 Wake Forest a 1-0 win at No. 21 UCF and complete a successive road trip to open the 2011 season.

On Friday, the Demon Deacons won, 4-1, at SEC contender Auburn, getting two goals and an assist from Stengel.

Nuzzolese’s blast came in the 60th minute. The Demon Deacon defense did the rest, holding the Golden Knights to only two shots in the second half. Aubrey Bledsoe made four first-half saves to earn her first shutout of the season and the fourth of her career.

Wake Forest’s back line of Jackie Logue, Caralee Keppler, Alisha Woodson and Kim Marshall kept UCF star Tishia Jewell out of dangerous positions throughout the match.

“We’ve been preparing and practicing for (these first two games) so to get two wins out of it was just a phenomenal result that we wanted,” said Nuzzolese. “It felt to great score and it was phenomenal assist from Katie.”
