Wake Upset: College Cup Final Set

a07bc943010246d4b4579b3b90c31483 Wake Upset: College Cup Final Set

Tonight provided the ultimate shock as Brooks Haggerty made save after save to preserve a 1-0 North Carolina victory over heavily favored Wake Forest tonight. The Deamon Deacons steam rolled through last year’s NCAA Tournament and had done the same this year including a 5-0 quarterfinal win over South Florida. Led by Marcus Tracey, Wake looked unbeatable.

During the ACC season, Wake scored four second half goals to erase a half time deficit to beat the Tar Heels But tonight despite out shooting the Tar Heels 20-9, Wake shockingly lost. North Carolina will face Maryland in an all ACC College Cup final Sunday. The Terps beat St John’s in overtime. Neal Kitson was amazing in goal for the Red Storm, but finally in overtime the Terps who out shoot St John’s by more than a five to one ratio scored on a curling free kick goal by Graham Zusi.

Sunday’s final is at 1pm ET on ESPN2.
