UNCG falls to No. 6 Wake Forest, 3-0; unbeaten streak snapped at four
GREENSBORO, N.C. - Coren Bone and Zack Schilawski each had a goal and an assist as sixth-ranked Wake Forest snapped UNC Greensboro's four-game unbeaten streak, 3-0, in men's soccer action at UNCG Soccer Stadium Tuesday night.
Bone assisted on the first goal of the match at the 7:12 mark. Bone played a ball thru the Spartan defensive line and Zack Schilawski caught up to it and popped it into the upper righthand corner for his fifth goal of the season and a 1-0 lead.
Schilawski had a hand in making it 2-0 late in the first half. He found Nick Courtney, who had a one-touch pass to Austin daLuz. daLuz went to the same top corner from 13 yards out for his second goal of the season.
Bone closed the scoring at 81:39 when he stole an errant pass by the Spartan defense, dribbled just inside of the 18 and hit a blast into the lower left side of the goal.
UNCG had several one-on-one chances with Wake Forest goalkeeper Akira Fitzgerald, but couldn't get the one that might have turned the momentum. Fitzgerald finished with four saves before being lifted with 1:11 to play. UNCG redshirt freshman goalkeeper Peyton Ford finished with four saves.
Wake Forest, which dropped to No. 6 in the NSCAA poll earlier in the day, is now 7-2-1 on the season. UNCG is 3-5-3 after having its four-game (2-0-2) unbeaten streak halted.
UNCG returns to action on Saturday night when it hosts College of Charleston in a big Saturday night match. Game time is set for 7 p.m.
