Watch the best goals from Week 10

  Virginia's Edward Opoku scored his eighth goal of the season in UVA's win over Boston College.

It's that time of the year where each soccer match means more than the last. For some teams, their next lost will mark the end of their season, while others are still jostling for NCAA tournament positioning. Week 10 began in exciting fashion with Michigan winning its first Big Ten regular season title in double overtime, as well as the release of the Division I men's soccer committee's top 10 teams. The week ended with ACC tournament action, which is home to the top four teams in the RPI.

Here are the best goals from Week 10 in men's soccer:

Sam Gainford – Akron

On Akron's senior night, senior Sam Gainford scored his sixth goal of the season, which doubled as the game-winner, with a left-footed strike from outside the box in the 19th minute that deflected off the crossbar and into the goal.

Edward Opoku – Virginia

Virginia junior forward Edward Opoku scored his team-best eighth goal of the season in the Cavaliers' 4-0 win over Boston College, when he sent a pretty back-heel flick into the net.

Francis Atuahene – Michigan

The Wolverines brought some hardware home to Ann Arbor as Francis Atuahene's game-winning goal in the 104th minute against Maryland locked up the Big Ten regular season title for Michigan.

Foster Langsdorf, Sam Werner – Stanford

Stanford won its fourth consecutive Pac-12 title thanks to a 5-1 win over UCLA. Foster Langsdorf's goal in the eighth minute tied the Pac-12 career record and Sam Werner later added to the Cardinal's lead with a blast from the top of the box.

Garrett McLaughlin – SMU

SMU won the American Athletic Conference regular season title with a 1-0 win over UConn. Garrett McLaughlin scored his 13th goal of the season after settling a deflected pass with one touch, then taking a shot just over the Huskies' keeper's head that barely crossed the goal line.

Eric Leonard – Butler

The Bulldogs finished their regular season schedule with a dramatic come-from-behind victory against Xavier. Eric Leonard's bouncing header proved to be the game-winner.

Ryan Sierakowski – Michigan State

The Spartans needed a penalty kick in the 61st minute to tie No. 2 Indiana 1-1 in East Lansing, as Ryan Sierakowski's stutter step and strong placement were enough to beat Indiana keeper Trey Muse.
