Roberts' OT winner lifts Marshall to national championship

NCAA Photos Marshall men's soccer Jamil Roberts' game-winning goal propelled Marshall to its first national championship

Jamil Roberts has done it again, this time for Marshall's first-ever national championship. The senior tracked a rebound to the near post for a winner in the 98th minute — his third straight contest with a game-winning goal — and Marshall defeated Indiana 1-0 in extra time to claim the College Cup title.

Like most of the Thundering Herd's offense tonight, the play started with yet another long run by Milo Yosef. The winger cut upfield and inside before a drop off pass to Vitor Dias, who had his initial shot blocked and nearly fired in the rebound himself. IU goalkeeper Roman Celentano made his season-best seventh save of the night on Dias, but the ball was loose and Roberts was on the doorstep ready to pounce. Watch the replay below.

Marshall's pace and pressure proved to be too much for Indiana on this night. The Hoosiers, a top defensive team in college soccer, were peppered with eight shots on goal and seven corners in the title game. But IU held its shape and threatened on the counter multiple times keeping the College Cup newcomers at bay. It wasn't until late in the second that Marshall asserted itself, keeping IU on the defensive through the end regulation and overtime until Roberts' winner.

With the win, Marshall took down three of the eight national seeds — No. 1 Clemson, No. 8 Georgetown, No. 3 Indiana —  in this year's tournament and elevated itself to the pinnacle of college soccer. What a finish and what a jump for a team that was celebrating its first NCAA tournament win a season ago.

3:17 am, May 18, 2021

No. 3 Indiana 0, Marshall 0 | End of regulation

The national championship will be decided in overtime for the fifth time in the past 7 College Cups. Marshall controlled possession for much of the second half, though Indiana did a good job defensively with limiting chance creation. The Thundering Herd took six shots in the half with two on target. IU got a look on net from a free kick and only registered one other shot for the period. 

2:50 am, May 18, 2021

No. 3 Indiana 0, Marshall 0 | 65th minute

Marshall is starting to take over possession in the match. The Thundering Herd have found a rhythm in the middle and final thirds. Forward Milo Yosef has been a matchup issue for IU in the midfield and out wide. He's up to four shots for the game and almost created a goal for the Herd. His run up the left sideline created space before an entry pass to Vinicius Fernandes. Vitor Dias did a dummy move to free up his teammate and shot nearly went through Celentano's hands. The IU keeper is up to six saves as this one remains scoreless.

2:29 am, May 18, 2021

No. 3 Indiana 0, Marshall 0 | 49th minute

Indiana just produced its best scoring chance of the match, so far. Herbert Endeley was taken down just outside the box and Victor Bezerra forced Oliver Semmle into his first save effort of the night with well-struck free kick underneath the wall headed for the lower left corner. Head coach Todd Yeagley moved Herbert Endeley to the middle of the field after his pace became a noticeable problem for Marshall. That position change should also free up Bezerra to operate up top a bit more. Marshall's Collin Mocyunas picked up a yellow card for his challene of Endeley.

1:59 am, May 18, 2021

No. 3 Indiana 0, Marshall 0 | Half

Indiana and Marshall are scoreless through 45 minutes of the national championship game. Cary, North Carolina is hosting two of college soccer's top five defensive teams in tonight's matchup, but both have generated a number of quality scoring chances.

The Thundering Herd have continually tested IU's Roman Celentano to the tune of four shots on goal and four corners. Midfielder Vinicius Fernandes had the most threatening of those opportunities when he fired a right-footed shot in from the top of the box, forcing Celentano to go post-to-post quickly for the diving stop.

Indiana started out with a high press before Marshall figured out to break it using the wings. The Hoosiers were put on the defensive for much of the period. IU broke through a bit with Marshall's Gabriel Alves receiving an early yellow card. Indiana's mustered six shots, though none have been on goal. Victor Bezerra and Daniel Munie each had chances in the final minutes of the half in the box. Munie's been close on a few headers now and will continue to be someone to watch as the match progresses.

1:36 am, May 18, 2021

No. 3 Indiana 0, Marshall 0 | 23rd minute

Marshall left back Gabriel Alves was given a yellow card following a challenge on Herbert Endeley. Alves is a physical back and Endeley often looks for one-on-one matchups given his pace. This could drastically change that matchup over the course of the match.

IU's Daniel Munie nearly made Marshall pay for the foul when he hit the post on the ensuing free kick. A few minutes later, IU keeper Roman Celentano had to lay out to deny a shot to his right. Both he and Oliver Semmle have been kept busy in the first half.

 

1:26 am, May 18, 2021

No. 3 Indiana 0, Marshall 0 | 15th minute

Both Indiana and Marshall started off slow in their semifinal victories, but each side has come out sharp to start this championship game. Pressure appears to be a big part of the strategy tonight. Indiana is looking to press in Marshall's final third while the Thundering Herd have been buzzing around the middle third.

Marshall's already got two shots in this contest after registering one — for a goal — in their semifinal match. The Herd have done a nice job breaking out against the IU press and are finding space in the Hoosiers' final third. Herbert Endeley has the lone shot attempt for Indiana.

No. 3 Indiana vs. Marshall | Pregame – Match to start at 9:15 ET

It's almost time for the final game of the college soccer season. No. 3 Indiana and Marshall battle for the College Cup title in Cary, North Carolina. The 2020-21 title game starts at 9:15 p.m. ET, airing on ESPN2 and WatchESPN. We’ll be providing live updates all throughout the match.

Click or tap here for live stats

The Hoosiers are looking for their ninth championship in program history and first since 2012. IU comes into tonight’s title game on the heels of back-to-back clean sheet victories, including an impressive 1-0 win over Pittsburgh in the national semifinals. Indiana’s bread and butter is its defense, which ranks second nationally in goals allowed average at .321. IU’s posted twice as many shutouts (10) as goals allowed (5). Don’t overlook the offense though. Midfielder Victor Bezerra is a Hermann Trophy finalist with his 12 goals and ability to take over the game in every third of the pitch.

And then there’s Marshall. It seems like just a season ago the Thundering Herd were picking up their first postseason win. That’s because it was only a year ago. Head coach Chris Grassie has transformed the program in just four short years from a sub-.500 club to 90 minutes away from a national title. Like IU, Marshall is a top 5 defensive team in college soccer with eight goals allowed all season. The Herd conceded just once in its past three games, which was a win over No. 1 Clemson before blanking Georgetown and North Carolina.

Indiana vs. Marshall: Score, live updates from College Cup final

Indiana Athletics Indiana defeated No. 2 seed Pittsburgh 1-0.

Tonight, history is on the line in the DI men's College Cup final between No. 3 seed Indiana and Marshall, which airs at 8 p.m. EDT on ESPN2.

Indiana is pursuing its ninth national championship, which would tie St. Louis for the most all-time. The Hoosiers came close to doing so in 2017, when they fell to the Stanford Cardinal in double overtime in the College Cup final.

Meanwhile, Marshall has the opportunity to not only win its first-ever national championship, but to do so in historic fashion, if it's able to defeat No. 1 seed Clemson, No. 8 seed Georgetown, North Carolina (which has appeared in three College Cup finals in the 2000s) and No. 3 seed Indiana in succession.

Indiana has the second-best goals-allowed average in the country, surrendering just .321 goals per game, while Victor Bezerra is fourth nationally with 12 goals this season, giving the Hoosiers an elite combination of offense and defense. Most recently, Indiana held scoreless No. 2 seed Pittsburgh, one of the top scoring offenses in the country, after the Panthers scored 13 goals in their three previous tournament matches.

Marshall's top goal-scorer is Vitor Dias, who has six goals in 16 games, and the Thundering Herd's defense is also among the stingiest in the country, allowing just .448 goals per game, which ranks fourth nationally.

No. 3 Indiana, Marshall to meet in College Cup final

The College Cup final is set. No. 3 seed Indiana will battle Marshall on Monday, May 17 at 8 p.m. ET for the national championship. Both teams advanced to the title game following 1-0 wins in the semifinals. IU defeated No. 2 Pittsburgh while Marshall took down North Carolina, marking the first time an ACC team will not play in a championship game held in Cary, N.C.

Marshall Athletics Marshall men's soccer

Monday's meeting will be the first time Indiana and Marshall share the pitch in a postseason game as these two come from vastly different soccer backgrounds. The Thundering Herd won their first-ever NCAA tournament game in 2019 and are now 90 minutes away from a championship. They're only the fourth unseeded team to reach the national final and are looking to become the first to finish the job. Here's a look at Marshall's path to this point:

  • Second round: Marshall 2, Fordham 1 (OT) 
  • Third round: Marshall 1, No. 1 Clemson 1 (7-6 on PKs)
  • Quarterfinals: Marshall 1, No. 8 Georgetown 0
  • Semifinals: Marshall 1, North Carolina 0

On the other hand, Indiana has been here before. Fifteen times to be exact. The Hoosiers have won eight championships — second most in NCAA soccer history — and are gearing up for their 16th title game appearance. That experience can certainly be an X-factor against Marshall. But the big number to take away from the Hoosiers' first 15 matches this season is five, the number of goals they've allowed, which is also half the number of shutouts they've posted. IU has been a defensive juggernaut this season. See for yourself in their path to the championship:

  • Second round: No. 3 Indiana 1, St. Francis Brooklyn 1 (3-1 on PKs)
  • Third round: No. 3 Indiana 2, Marquette 1
  • Quarterfinals: No. 3 Indiana 2, No. 6 Seton Hall 0
  • Semifinals: No. 3 Indiana 1, No. 2 Pittsburgh 0

Now that the stage is set, the only thing left to do is make sure you're in front of the television on Monday night. And, of course, also following along right here with NCAA.com during the national championship game.

No. 3 Indiana downs No. 2 Pittsburgh to reach championship game

Indiana defeats Pittsburgh 1-0

One goal was more than enough for the top defense in college soccer as No. 3 Indiana blanked No. 2 Pittsburgh 1-0 in the second semifinal of this year's College Cup. Herbert Endeley's blast in the 79th minute was the difference after the sophomore split a double team and beat the keeper near post. 

Although the match was tied most of the way, it seemed like IU was chasing a goal at times. The Hoosiers were unable to generate scoring opportunities or meaningful possessions in the opening half. Hermann Trophy finalist Victor Bezerra sparked the offense out of the break with a couple of quality chances in the second half. Even so, IU went more than 20 minutes without a shot before Endeley's winner. Goalkeeper Roman Celentano played a strong game and helped out the Hoosier back line when Pitt was getting chance after chance. His willingness to come off his line may have had an impact on Pitt's second-half strategy in the final third. Celentano picked up his 10th shutout of the season in the win.

The Panthers had plenty of chances to take this one. Filip Mirkovic rung the bar and even drew a review in the 59th minute while Luke Mort sailed a shot over the near post to end a three on one opportunity. Hermann finalist Valentin Noel took three shots, but was held relatively in check as he had to rely on his aerial game for two of those. Pitt finished with 14 shots in the loss.

2:26 am, May 15, 2021

No. 3 Indiana 1, No. 2 Pittsburgh 0 | 79th minute

And just like that Indiana leads. The No. 3 Hoosiers pull ahead in the 79th behind an absolute missile from Herbert Endeley. The sophomore forward started the sequence by grabbing a rebound of a blocked shot. After IU cycled the ball through once, it came to Endeley on the right wing before splitting two defenders and rifling a shot near-post past Nico Campuzano. Endeley's strike also ended a 20-plus minute stretch for IU without a shot and it couldn't have come at a better time.

2:04 am, May 15, 2021

No. 2 Pittsburgh 0, No. 3 Indiana 0 | 58th minute

Both Pittsburgh and Indiana are now fully engaged in this match on the offensive end with each team producing their top chance of the match in the last few minutes. Bezerra nearly struck first, utilizing a cut in to his right foot beyond the Pitt 18 before launching a curler just wide of the far post. 

But the best chance of the night belongs to Filip Mirkovic (so far). Jasper Loeffelsend created space with a nice right to left stepover move before finding the freshman at the top of the box. Mirkovic cracked a one-timer that beat Celentano and went bar-down without crossing the line. The officials even stopped play to review the play but it was ruled no goal.

1:53 am, May 15, 2021

No. 2 Pittsburgh 0, No. 3 Indiana 0 | 48th minute

We mentioned Victor Bezerra as a player to watch in the second half after the Hoosiers' leading goalscorer was relegated to a defensive role in the first half. IU head coach Todd Yeagley mentioned his name as well on the halftime interview with ESPNU, so it's only fitting Bezerra gets Indiana's first shot on goal out of the break. The sophomore helped force a takeaway near midfield and challenged Pitt keeper Nico Campuzano with a bullet on the ground but Campuzano was able to handle it. 
1:23 am, May 15, 2021

No. 2 Pittsburgh 0, No. 3 Indiana 0 | Half

The second semifinal of the evening is a scoreless draw at the half between No. 2 Pittsburgh and No. 3 Indiana. Offensive chances were limited on both sides, though Pitt was beginning to find cracks in Indiana's defense in the final five minutes of the period. Veljko Petkovic sailed a breakaway chance in the 41st minute and Valentin Noel's header in the closing minute was met by a brilliant save from IU keeper Roman Celentano.

Both teams were also nearly punished for error in the first half. Pitt's Jasper Loeffelsend turned the ball over in his own box before recovering to block a shot while IU's Nyk Sessock nearly cleared a shot right into his own net. Pitt leads 6-3 on shots at the break.

The big thing to watch in the second half is whether or not Indiana can win the middle third when it has possession. The Hoosiers need some meaningful possession to take the pressure off of their back line. Celentano was very active in the first half, having to vacate his line multiple times. That's not a trend IU would like to continue seeing. If IU is to settle down, look to Hermann Trophy finalist Victor Bezerra to be the catalyst after a strong defensive half from the sophomore midfielder.

1:09 am, May 15, 2021

No. 2 Pittsburgh 0, No. 3 Indiana 0 | 26th minute

Both sides have now narrowly avoided disaster in this opening half. After Jasper Loeffelsend gave up dangerous position to Indiana inside the Pittsburgh 18, IU defender Nyk Sessock nearly redirected a ball into his own net after Alexander Dexter's shot came across the goal mouth with some serious speed on it. These close calls have been the best scoring opportunities so far as each side has done a good job controlling the middle third while on defense.

12:50 am, May 15, 2021

No. 2 Pittsburgh 0, No. 3 Indiana 0 | 7th minute

Indiana nearly struck first with a dangerous chance in what's otherwise been a clean open to the match. An IU cross whipped into the box and deflected off of Pitt defender Jasper Loeffelsend to an open Thomas Warr. Loeffelsend recovered in time for a huge block on Warr to keep a potentially disastrous turnover out of the net. 

12:20 am, May 15, 2021

No. 2 Pittsburgh vs. No. 3 Indiana | Pregame

Marshall just defeated North Carolina for the first spot in this year’s national championship. Now we’ll see if Pitt can make it two first-timers in the finals or if Indiana — the program with the most College Cup appearances in NCAA history — has something to say about it when these two battle in the second semifinal at 8:30 p.m. ET on ESPNU.

Click or tap for live stats | Follow the game on WatchESPN

The Panthers might be the hottest team coming into the College Cup. They’re 8-1-0 in their past nine games and breezed through the first three rounds of the postseason, outscoring opponents 13-1 in wins over Monmouth, UCF and Washington. While No. 2 Pitt is making its College Cup debut, head coach Jay Vidovich knows what it takes to win this tournament. He won the 2007 national title at Wake Forest — in Cary. That experience goes a long way in this environment.

And then there’s No. 3 seed Indiana. If there’s a defense capable of slowing down the red-hot attack of Pitt, it’s the Hoosiers. IU has allowed five goals all season with some offensive potency of its own. What really makes IU so dangerous is its experience. Nearly every upperclassman on the team was on the roster for at least one College Cup appearance. After all, the Hoosiers have been 21 times in the program’s storied history. If experience reigns supreme, maybe this is the year the crimson and cream earn its ninth star.

Marshall blanks North Carolina for first national final berth

Marshall Athletics Marshall men's soccer

Marshall has done it. A 1-0 win over North Carolina books the Thundering Herd a spot in the national championship game. Jamil Roberts notched the game's lone goal in the 60th minute before keeper Oliver Semmle and the defense withstood several high-danger chances from the Tar Heels in the final half hour.

Carolina momentarily appeared to draw level on a Jonathan Jimenez rebound in the 88th minute before the official ruled that the ball went out on the corner kick leading up to his touch. UNC controlled most of the match with a high press extending two thirds of the field, registering 11 shots with five on net. Marshall took advantage of a 15-minute stretch with Giovanni Montesdeoca on the bench, leaving UNC without as much midfield pressure from its forwards. 

Roberts' tally was the only shot of the game for the Thundering Herd, but it is enough for the program to have a shot at their first national championship on Monday night. 

Marshall defeats UNC 1-0 to advance to the national championship
11:42 pm, May 14, 2021

Marshall 1, North Carolina 0 | 71st minute

Carolina may be down, but the final third pressure hasn't let up and it nearly led to and equalizer in the 71st minute. A lackadaisical turnover by Marshall's Max Schneider put Montesdeoca in front with only Semmle to beat. The shot attempt never reached the net though as Pedro Dolabella's recovery was perfectly timed for a possible game-saving deflection.
11:26 pm, May 14, 2021

Marshall 1, North Carolina 0 | 65th minute

Marshall came out of the gate far more composed in the second half and Jamil Roberts capped that stretch with the go-ahead goal in the 60th minute. His fourth tally of the season — a push past keeper Alec Smir — came on the Thundering Herd's first shot attempt of the match. Quick touches throughout the final third set up the play but it was Milo Yosef's entry pass into the box and Vitor Dias' dummy that left Roberts in front with only Smir to beat. Watch the replay below:

Marshall really started to find itself with Giovanni Montesdeoca on the bench for UNC to start the second half. The Carolina striker returned just before the Roberts goal and nearly leveled things up in the 65th minute with a tally of his own, but his ball rung the crossbar to keep Marshall in front.

10:47 pm, May 14, 2021

North Carolina 0, Marshall 0 | Half

We're scoreless through 45 minutes of tonight's first semifinal as North Carolina and Marshall head to the locker rooms tied. While a goal hasn't been scored yet, the Tar Heels controlled most of the opening period. UNC took six shots and put four on goal, keeping Oliver Semmle busy in net. Giovanni Montesdeoca and Santiago Herrera have been persistent with pressure in the Thundering Herd third of the field. Marshall was held without a shot in the first half and struggled to generate possession. We started to see Marshall flip the field and use the long ball more over the final 10 minutes to create space, which proved effective at times. 

10:31 pm, May 14, 2021

North Carolina 0, Marshall 0 | 25th minute

Three quick shots for North Carolina have the Tar Heels finding their rhythm offensively. Santiago Herrera continues to be a catalyst for UNC in the early goings of the match. The senior spotted Oliver Semmle off his line and challenged the keeper from just inside of midfield, forcing the netminder to make a diving stop. On the ensuing set piece, Riley Thomas got his head on a cross and Tim Schels nearly redirected the shot for a goal before Semmle swallowed it up. Marshall has not yet registered a shot attempt.
10:17 pm, May 14, 2021

North Carolina 0, Marshall 0 | 11th minute

UNC's Giovanni Montesdeoca recorded the first shot attempt of the match by either side with a low-rolling look that was corralled by Marshall keeper Oliver Semmle. It was also the first long possession of the evening, which began after it looked like Santiago Herrera may have not been called for a hand ball while receiving a goal kick. 

Marshall's had a tough time generating possession outside of its own third early. UNC is working in a 4-4-2 formation and has Montesdeoca dropping down to simulate a fifth midfielder when pressuring the Thundering Herd. Marshall's maintained its 4-3-3 shape through the press and remained precise in its passing to avoid giving up a high-danger chance.

North Carolina vs. Marshall | Pregame

No more waiting, the College Cup is here. This year's tournament began with 36 teams and now we're down to just four in Cary, N.C. North Carolina and Marshall are playing in the first semifinal match at 6 p.m. ET on ESPNU. Here's what you need to know before kickoff:

Click or tap here for live stats | Follow the game on WatchESPN

The College Cup is unfamiliar territory for Marshall soccer as they make their first-ever appearance in the national semifinals. But this is no ordinary Cinderella. The Thundering Herd finished ninth in the United Soccer Coaches poll, looking every bit like a top 10 team when it sent No. 1 seed Clemson packing in the third round and put an end to Georgetown's title defense in the quarterfinals. Goalkeeper Oliver Semmle has been huge for the Herd all season, posting more shutouts (9) than goals allowed (7) in 15 starts. Tonight is also the first-ever meeting between Marshall and North Carolina.

Speaking of the Tar Heels, the ACC loves WakeMed Soccer Park and has the track record to prove it. The conference has had a representative in the title game all five times Cary has hosted the championship, with wins in four of those. North Carolina has two titles in program history and is looking to add a third in its backyard, some 20-plus miles from Chapel Hill. UNC makes its ninth College Cup appearance after defeating a pair of 2019 semifinalists in No. 4 Stanford and No. 5 Wake Forest.

Here's the schedule for Friday's College Cup

Pittsburgh Athletics Pitt in the DI men's soccer championship

Four teams will compete in the 2020-21 College Cup tonight for a spot in Monday's national championship game. The only two unseeded teams left — North Carolina and Marshall — lead off the semifinals at 6 p.m. ET. No. 2 seed Pitt and No. 3 seed Indiana face off in the nightcap at 8:30 ET.

Here's the schedule for Friday's semifinals from Cary, North Carolina.

The most recent champion of the four teams left is Indiana. The Hoosiers shut out (1-0) Georgetown for the 2012 title. North Carolina last won in 2011, defeating Charlotte 1-0. The Hoosiers have eight titles and the Tar Heels have two, while the Panthers and the Herd have never won the championship.

Today marks the ninth time — seventh since 2008 — North Carolina has appeared in the College Cup. Over the last 13 seasons, the Tar Heels lead all NCAA Division I programs in NCAA tournament wins (26) and third round (10) and quarterfinal appearances (nine). North Carolina advanced to the semifinals this season after beating No. 5 seed Wake Forest via a 2-1 come-from-behind win. The Tar Heels have outscored their opponents 20-10 this season, while 13 different players have scored at least one goal.

Now to the Cinderella team. Marshall is on a record-breaking program run right now. After defeating No. 1 seed Clemson via penalty kicks in the third round and handing the defending champion Georgetown a clean sheet in the quarterfinals, the Herd will now compete in their first College Cup. Marshall has outscored its opponents 28-8 and 12 different players have scored at least one goal this season.

The Indiana program is a powerhouse. The Hoosiers have appeared in 21 College Cups, 2020 being their third in four years.

For the second time in program history, Pitt will face Indiana. The Hoosiers won the most recent battle, beating the Panthers 3-2 in double overtime. Indiana has allowed just five goal this season, and its MAC Hermann Trophy Finalist sophomore Victor Bezerra leads the team with 12 goals and four assists on the season. 

Pitt, however, has its own MAC Hermann Trophy Finalist in sophomore midfielder Valentin Noel. He ranks second in the country in goals (14) and third in total points (30). During the fall season, Noel broke a school record by scoring at least one goal in six consecutive games.

The national title game will be played at 8 p.m. ET on Monday, May 17.

College Cup semis set after No. 3 Indiana, North Carolina post wins

Indiana Athletics IU men's soccer

The College Cup semifinals are set after No. 3 Indiana and North Carolina locked up the final two spots. The Hoosiers advanced with a 2-0 win over Seton Hall while the Tar Heels scored two straight goals for a 2-1 upset of No. 5 Wake Forest.

Below are the final stats from each match. Click or tap here to view the updated interactive bracket.

IU spent much of the first half in a scoreless tie before a weather delay sidelined the match for nearly an hour. Out of the break the Hoosiers played with pace and pressure and Ryan Wittenbrink capitalized with a 44th-minute screamer through traffic into the bottom right corner of the net. Thomas Warr added the insurance goal in the 58th minute. Maouloune Goumballe made a nice run off a through ball and found Warr running the far post and all he had to do was tap in the ball to put the match out of reach. This is Indiana's first College Cup appearance since 2017. 

North Carolina found itself down 1-0 after 10 minutes of play, but that deficit was erased 32 seconds later. Giovanni Montesdeoca was left unmarked in the box, burying an 11th-minute, first-touch rebound for the Tar Heels after their initial cross was headed down right to the senior. UNC went ahead for good in the 58th minute when Santiago Herrera anticipated a blocked free kick and ripped a left-footed shot into the top left corner. Carolina also returns to the College Cup for the first time since 2017.

While Pittsburgh and Marshall locked up their first-ever College Cup berths earlier in the day, UNC and IU have a bit more experience. The Tar Heels will make their ninth College Cup appearance. Indiana adds to its NCAA record with a 21st trip to the College Cup semifinals.

Here are the 2020-21 College Cup matchups:

Make it two straight goals for North Carolina After Giovanni Montesdeoca pulled UNC level in the 11th minute, Santiago Herrera put the Tar Heels up 2-1 in the 68th minute with a left-footed strike from inside the box. Herrera showed great awareness in the sequence, tracking Milo Garvanian's blocked free-kick perfectly, which gave him an open lane to the net. The senior took one touch off the rebound before rocketing his shot into the upper left corner.

No. 3 Indiana doubles lead against No. 6 Seton Hall

Indiana extended its lead over Seton to 2-0 on Thomas Warr's goal in the 58th minute. The Hoosiers senior made his run at the far post, tapping in a low cross from Maouloune Goumballe. IU began the possession on its own goal line. After a goal kick sent the ball to midfield, Goumballe was the recipient of a through-ball and found Warr streaking through the box.

No. 3 Indiana leads No. 6 Seton Hall 1-0 at the break

There was some early scoring in Wake Forest-UNC, but defense was the story for much of  first half story between Seton Hall and Indiana, at least for the first 43-plus minutes before Ryan Wittenbrink broke the scoreless tie with a beautiful strike in the 44th minute. The redshirt sophomore cut to his right foot below the 18-yard box and dribbled past a sliding defender before firing a right-footed blast into the lower right corner. Check out his strike below.

Seton Hall outshot Indiana 5-2 with the Pirates getting only one attempt on net while IU put both of its shots on target.  A weather delay put the game on hold in the 42nd minute for nearly an hour. The pitch conditions have visibly changed and played a part in the Wittenbrink goal. We’ll see how that  affects strategies in the second half.

10:46 pm, May 10, 2021

No. 5 Wake Forest, UNC tied 1-1 at half

Two early goals were the first half story in Wake Forest-North Carolina. Kyle Holcomb found the back of the net first for the Demon Deacons with a close-range volley but Giovanni Montesdeoca pull the Tar Heels level 32 seconds later with a one-timer from six yards out.

Shots are 8-2  in favor of UNC. Three Tar Heel shots were on net as were both of Wake Forest's attempts. The two quick goals were a product of an up-tempo pace set early on. A rain delay in the 38th kept these two off the field for nearly 45 minutes. Water on the field could definitely play a factor in the styles we see coming out of halftime.

Session 2 quarterfinals in weather delay

A weather delay has gone into effect in Cary, North Carolina during the second pair of quarterfinal matches. All four teams have exited the field as games will be paused for a minimum of 30 minutes. Once play resumes, here's how things currently look:

No. 5 Wake Forest, North Carolina trade early goals

The first two goals of the late quarterfinal session came from the in-state showdown of Wake Forest-North Carolina and under a minute apart.

The No. 5 Demon Deacons got on the board first with Kyle Holcomb's point-blank shot.  A dangerous ball played in from Hosei Kijima along the end line was deflected by UNC, leaving Holcomb alone in front to volley home his ninth goal of the year in the 10th minute. Watch the play below.

Carolina needed just 32 seconds to pull level, getting the equalizer from Giovanni Montesdeoca in the 11the minute. Carolina used a quick build up out of the Wake Forest goal. An initial cross attempt was headed down right to an unmarked Montesdeoca at the the six-yard spot, who slotted the equalizer into the bottom right corner.

No. 2 seed Pittsburgh, Marshall clinch spots in College Cup

Pittsburgh Athletics Pittsburgh defeated Washington 3-0.

The first pair of quarterfinal matches on Monday saw a pair of matches enter halftime with scoreless ties. The floodgates opened in the second halves, as No. 2 seed Pittsburgh scored three goals against No. 7 seed Washington, including two from long range in the final three minutes, while unseeded Marshall advanced thanks to a 70th-minute goal.

Pittsburgh took the lead on a beauty of a header from Valentin Noel, who was assisted by Jasper Loeffelsend, then Bertin Jacquesson scored on a sliding strike from about 40 yards out when Washington keeper Sam Fowler had pushed out of the box. A minute later, Veljko Petkovic's try from midfield was good, putting Pitt up 3-0.

The Marshall-Georgetown match was scoreless for nearly 70 minutes, until Marshall's Vitor Dias snaked through the box and down the end line and until his pass found Jamil Roberts open near the back post, who finished the job. Georgetown was unable to answer and the reigning national champions were sent home by Marshall.

In the College Cup, Marshall will face the winner of No. 5 seed Wake Forest-North Carolina on May 14, while Pittsburgh will face the winner of No. 3 seed Indiana-No. 6 seed Seton Hall.

6:15 pm, May 10, 2021

No. 2 seed Pittsburgh scores first on Valentin Noel's header in the 52nd minute

Following a beautiful, right-footed cross by Jasper Loeffelsend, No. 2 seed Pittsburgh midfielder Valentin Noel leapt from inside the box and beat Washington keeper Sam Fowler for the first goal of the game in the 52nd minute. It was Noel's 14th goal of the season and it continued the midfielder's streak of scoring in every DI Men's Soccer Championship game in which Pittsburgh has played this spring.

It took eight shots and five shots on goal, but Pittsburgh's attack was finally able to find the back of the net.

Both sides had a very good scoring opportunity that hit the crossbar as Pittsburgh's Veljko Petkovic launched a shot in the 26th minute that hit the crossbar, then eight minutes later, Washington defender Ryan Sailor tried to clean up a broken play after a corner kick, but it too hit the crossbar.

It was Washington's only recorded shot in the first half, while Pittsburgh had six shots, including two from Petkovic and two from Jasper Loeffelsend. Washington keeper Sam Fowler had three saves in the half.
