WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- No. 2-ranked Wake Forest scored early and led wire-to-wire in a 4-1 victory over No. 12-ranked Providence at Spry Stadium on Sunday night.

Senior Luis Argudo earned his first-career brace, scoring in the opening minutes of both the first and second halves to lead the Demon Deacon (2-0-0) offense. Brandon Servania added a pair of assists to give him eight points on two goals and four assists this weekend.

Argudo put the Deacs on the board in the sixth minute. Eddie Folds sent a cross to the box, and Argudo finished upper-90 to make the score 1-0.

Kevin Politz recorded his first goal since 2015 in the 27th minute. Servania's service on a corner found Politz's head inside the six-yard box and Politz put it away for what proved to be the game-winner.

Argudo scored again less than three minutes into the second half. Ema Twumasi stole the ball in the attacking third and delivered it to Servania along the left side, who crossed it in for Argudo's one-timer to put the Deacs in front 3-0.

The Friars (0-2-0) got on the board in the 49th minute when a corner by Joao Serrano was loose in front of the net and Liam Wilson tapped it in for the score.

Jon Bakero put on the finishing touches in the 74th minute, executing a give-and-go with Justin McMaster to push the margin to 4-1.

Andreu Cases Mundet (2-0-0) was strong in goal, saving six of the seven shots on goal he faced.

Wake Forest had advantages over Providence in shots (15-12) and corner kicks (10-6) en route to the win.
