Deacon Dump 12/12: Deacs fall in College Cup

The soccer loss last night was certainly difficult to swallow, especially considering the fact that Wake pretty much dominated the entire game.  Soccer is definitely a frustrating sport.  On a brighter note, I am finished with exams and will now enjoy a month of no accounting and a lot of basketball and football.  As always, click through for a couple links...

Dominant Downing a terror for Titans -
Though the offense excelled, the defense might have won the game, as the Titans held West Charlotte star J.T. Terrell, who was averaging more than 30 points per game, to a season-low 15. Junior guard Jacoby Davis also had 15 for the Lions. Hopewell took turns guarding Terell, who will play at Wake Forest next season, with each player taking two-minute shifts. Seniors Adrian Addie, Earl McLaurin, Justin Avery and Michael Russell all took hounded Terrell. "We knew a huge key to this game was to stop Terrell from going off," Davis said. "I think we were able to make him take a lot of difficult shots."

Lambert’s name has emerged recently. He just wrapped up his second season as defensive coordinator for Wake Forest coach Jim Grobe, a Huntington native. He has coached the linebackers there for nine seasons. Lambert was an assistant coach at Marshall from 1990-95 before heading to Georgia with former Herd coach Jim Donnan.

Cavs stop Deacs
"Looking back at it, I don't remember the play developing too much," Arena said. "One of the midfielders just got a ball and we know they like to hit the ball over the top and run under it. I think, me personally, I underestimated Ownby's speed and he got a head start on it and I got behind." Ownby, who is suffering from a sports hernia and was limited in his minutes, said: "I saw I was behind the player so I ran past him. He ran backward toward the goal and I just got there first and put it in the net."

WFU's Tucker leaves team
"I just think it's a matter with him of playing time, and maybe coming off Gonzaga, where he sees C.J. shooting the ball well and Ari shooting the ball well, and Gary comes in and shoots the ball and gives us a big lift," Gaudio said. "I just think it all comes down, with young kids, (to) wanting to play and wanting to play right now."
