Women's Soccer (11-5-1, 5-2-1 ACC)
Wake Forest went 1-1 this past week at home with a 2-1 victory over No. 6 Maryland on Thursday and a 2-1 overtime loss to Boston College on Sunday.
Katie Stengel scored her school-record tying 14th goal of the season against Maryland in the 64th minute when she collected a lob out of the midfield from Bianca D'Agostino. Stengel now has tied Jill Hutchinson's 14-goal performance in 2009 for the Wake Forest single-season goal-scoring record.
As a team, Wake Forest has won five straight games against Maryland, and this victory marked the highest-ranked opponent that the Deacons have defeated since they earned a 3-0 win over No. 5 Florida State in 2009.
Marisa Park scored the opening goal for the Deacons in the 33rd minute against the Terrapins from a pass from Jordan Feger. Park has scored three goals this season and has recorded five points in her last three games.
Junior Amanda Howell scored her first-career goal against Boston College in the "Kick For the Cure" game in the 76th minute on a penalty kick.

The win was the first for the Deacons over a ranked opponent since they defeated No. 24 Maryland 3-2 in Reynolds Gym in 2005. The victory also snaps a nine-match losing streak to the Seminoles and is Wake's first victory in Tallahassee since a 3-1 victory in 2003.
