Top-ranked Wake Forest won the ACC Championship with a 2-1 win over No. 5 Clemson thanks to Jon Bakero's game-winner in the 79th minute. Bakero capitalized on a failed clearance by Clemson's goalkeeper and sent a one-timer into the goal from roughly 30 yards out.

Francesco Moore added the team's third goal with an incredible volley on a corner kick.

Joe Moulden – Butler

Butler and Xavier faced each other twice, one week apart. The Bulldogs won the first match but the Musketeers took the second one in penalty kicks. Butler's Joe Moulden, however, kept his team's hopes alive by forcing overtime with his impressive header in the 84th minute.
