CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - No. 21 Wake Forest women's soccer fell to No. 10 Virginia, 2-1, in the opening round of the ACC Tournament Sunday afternoon at a rainy Klockner Stadium.

It was the 20th appearance in the conference tournament for the No. 5 seeded Demon Deacons (11-5-3, 5-3-2 ACC) and the first since 2012. It was also the first matchup in two seasons between the Deacs and the No. 4 seeded Cavaliers (11-4-4, 5-2-3 ACC), who last met on Oct. 11, 2015.

Bayley Feist put the Deacs on the board in the 13th minute with a header off a cross from Monreau DeVos. The set up was a result of a corner kick taken by Kahla Seymour and gave Wake Forest a 1-0 lead heading into halftime.

After the break, Virginia earned a penalty kick when Veronica Latsko was fouled in the box. Taryn Torres took the attempt for the Cavaliers, which went right past Lindsay Preston's dive to tie the score 1-all in the 55th minute. It was the first penalty kick by an opposing team this season.

The Cavaliers took the lead in the 74th minute when Meghan McCool launched a shot from just outside the box that went slightly over Preston's leap to seal the 2-1 victory in Virginia's favor.

Virginia held advantages in shots (9-6), shots on goal (4-3) and corners (6-2). Feist and Sarah Medina led the Deacs with two shots, while Feist had two shots on goal.

Wake Forest now turns its attention to the NCAA Tournament. The selection show will be broadcast on NCAA.com on Monday, Nov. 6 at 4:30 p.m.
