UNC men's soccer team advance to NCAA final

Posted by on Sat, Dec 13, 2008 at 12:18 PM

The UNC men's soccer side knocked off No. 1-ranked Wake Forest, 1-0, Friday evening in Frisco, Texas. Brian Shriver scored in the fourth minute.

Wake, the defending national champion, entered the game with a sterling 21-1-1 record, while the Heels were seeded 13th in the tournament with only a 14-7-1 record.

Although on paper the UNC-Wake game looked to be a mismatch--and the result a shocking, stunning, thrilling upset--the result is a testament to the strength of ACC soccer. Three of the four teams in the Final Four are from the ACC, and Maryland did its part in the night's second match, beating St. John's. That means UNC will play the Terrapins for the national championship on Sunday, Dec. 14 at 1 p.m.

The game will be televised on ESPN2, although devotees of the international game who are tuning in to college soccer for the first time should be forewarned that there will be "television timeouts."
