[WAKE FOREST-USF] Englishman Dom Dwyer, one of three transfers from JC power Tyler Junior College, gave No. 16 USF the early lead and an own goal was the insurance the Bulls needed to beat No. 13 Wake Forest, 2-0, before a crowd of 4,123 in Winston-Salem, N.C.
 
“I felt like we were the better team in a lot of areas tonight, which is good to walk away from being on the road at Wake Forest and feeling that way,” USF coa ch George Kiefer said.

Dwyer, who led the JC ranks with 37 goals and was named the NSCAA Player of the Year in 2010, fellow Englishman Kyle Nicholls and Jamaican Brenton Griffiths all arrived from Tyler, the two-time NJCAA Division I champion.
 
Also making their Bulls debut were freshman Wesley Charpie, who assisted on Dwyer's goal, and senior goalkeeper Chris Blais, a transfer from Michigan who totaled seven saves.
 
“He didn’t have a lot of work, but the work he did he did efficiently,” Kiefer said. “That’s what good goalkeepers do.”

Wake outshot USF, 20-16, but could not get a break.

“There were moments where tried to play our way and did a decent job, but just couldn’t sustain it," said Coach Jay Vidovich. "Sometimes you have to believe and work hard to create your own luck."

Things won't get easier for the young Deacons. They host No. 1 Louisville on Friday.
