Deacs Down Hokies 3-1 in ACC Opener
Sept. 27, 2007
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - It was déjà vu for the No. 23 Wake Forest women's soccer team, who defeated Virginia Tech 3-1 for the second consecutive meeting on Thursday night. With the home win the Deacons improved their record to 6-3-1 and 1-0-0 in the ACC while the Hokies stand at 4-3-1 and 0-1-0 in conference play.
Sophomore striker Allie Sadow out of Charlotte, N.C. netted two goals in the contest, marking her 2nd and 3rd goals of the season.
In the 27th minute Jill Hutchinson found the ball in the far left corner and passed it in to Sarah Winslow who was waiting dead center at the 10-yard mark. Winslow got a foot on it before Sadow fired the missile.
"It was a great shot by Sarah, I was just in the right spot at the right time," Sadow said.
Hutchinson netted her sixth goal of the season from a pass from Sadow in the 30th minute to put the Deacs up 2-0 going into halftime.
Sophomore defender Caitlin Farrell stopped the Hokies' first run for the goal by knocking the ball out of bounds in the 21st minute. Wake regained possession on the Virginia Tech corner kick which ended up in the hands of WFU goalkeeper Laura Morse.
Virginia Tech's first shot of the night came a few minutes later and was easily scooped up by Morse for her for first save of the evening.
VT's Marica Grey had a direct shot on the goal in the 65th minute, but lost power on the kick and Morse grabbed the ball for her third and final save of the night. Morse now stands at 2-2-0 for the season with five saves overall.
The Deacons will look to continue their 4-0 win streak at Spry Stadium when they host fifth-ranked Virginia on Sunday at 1 p.m.
