3. TUESDAY ACTION: ACC powers get scares


Junior Maurice Edu headed home his first goal of the season to give No. 3 Maryland a 1-0 victory against Loyola (Md.) on Tuesday.

The Terps held possession in the Loyola half of the field for almost the entire match and took 20 shots, but they could only manage Edu's goal, which came in the 61st minute.

No. 5 North Carolina also got a scare. Freshman forward Bill Dworsky scored his first collegiate goal on a rebound shot just over five minutes into overtime to lift the Tar Heels to a 1-0 victory over visiting Elon. UNC (9-2-0) has now had a different player score the game-winning goal in each of its nine victories.

Another ACC team got all it wanted from a non-conference opponent as No. 8 Wake Forest edged Appalachian State, 2-1. Wells Thompson broke a 1-1 tie in the 62nd minute for his third game-winning goal of the season.

Taylor Korpieski scored his first goal in two seasons to lead unranked Ohio State to a 1-0 victory over No. 14 Akron. The Buckeyes dominated Akron in the first half, outshooting the Zips, 11-1, but they had to wait until the 71st minute to score when Korpieski struck on a blast from 18 yards.

Colgate, the only unranked team that remains unbeaten, edged Siena, 1-0, on Charlie Lambropoulos' goal to improve its record to 6-0-2. Goalie David Cappuccio extended his shutout minutes to 490 this season.
