Wake Forest and North Carolina win big; Elon falls


No. 2 Wake Forest and No. 6 North Carolina showed just how dominate they can be outside of conference with lopsided wins on Tuesday.

Wake Forest scored three times in the first half hour and added a pair of second half goals to top Georgia St. 5-0.

Kris Reaves, Brad Dunwell and Jon Bakero got the first half goals and Tane Gent and Jared Odenbeck tacked onto the lead in the second half. Jacori Hayes, the hero from their big win over North Carolina last week, picked up a pair of assists in the match while Andrew Harris and Grant Bishop combined on the shut out making only three saves.

North Carolina scored three goals each side of halftime to top in-state rivals Campbell 6-1. Junior midfielder Warren Marshall scored his first career goal five minutes in and scored the eventual game-winner 19 minutes later.

Tucker Hume made it 3-0 going into the half and Andy Lopez and Nico Melo scored three minutes apart early into the second half. Bradley Farias got his 12th goal of the season in the 69th minute and Nyambi Jabang made it 6-1 in the 90th minute.

Brody Huitema scored a golden goal in the 100th minute to lift Duke past No. 10 Elon 2-1. Cooper Vandermaas-Peeler opened the scoring in the 14th minute, but Brian White equalized in seven minutes later for the Blue Devils.

Delaware defeated No. 20 Maryland for the first time in program history with an 89th minute goal by Thomas de Villardi. Maryland appeared to have sent the game into overtime in the 88th minute when Mael Corboz set up Emmanuel Korvah’s first career goal off a corner kick.

Ben Sampson broke the deadlock in the 57th minute with a goal set up by de Villardi, a junior from France.
