Demon Deacons deliver

BLACKSBURG, Va. -- Wake Forest ended its five-game winless streak by upsetting No. 10 Virginia Tech 1-0 on the road at Thompson Field on Saturday night.

The victory was Wake Forest's (4-8-2, 2-4-1 Atlantic Coastal Conference) first against a top-10 opponent since topping No. 10 North Carolina 2-1 on Oct. 21, 2012.

Kim Marshall notched her second goal of the season in the 73rd minute, when she fired a shot from 35 yards, which went over the Virginia Tech (12-4, 3-4 ACC) keeper's head and into the net.

Marshall, playing just her fourth game at center forward after spending her first three seasons as a defender, led the Demon Deacon offense with five shots, including all four of Wake Forest's shots on goal.

"The kids responded well. They played a great 90 minutes with a lot of pride. This is what they're capable of and what we've known they were capable of," head coach Tony da Luz said. "I'm really happy for Kim, being able to net the game-winner against a great team as a senior."

Wake Forest blanked the high-powered Hokie offense, which averages three goals per game, the fifth-highest in the NCAA. Virginia Tech took just 10 shots, two on goal, and were shut out for just the second time all year.

Demon Deacon goalkeeper Lindsay Preston earned her fourth career shutout, saving both of Virginia Tech's shots on goal.
