Wake Forest Men's Soccer Team Defeats VMI 7-0

The title is not a typo.

The Wake Forest men's soccer team was absolutely dominant on a chilly Tuesday night at Spry Stadium. Star midfield/forward Michael Gamble was sensational tallied 4 goals and 1 assist on the evening. The Keydets did not take their first shot until there was 8:40 left in the contest. It was simply one of the most dominant performances I have seen in any sport.

The picture you see above was taken at halftime. The Deacs were out-shooting VMI 21-0 and had already taken 7 corner kicks. At one point in the second half, Wake Forest had out-shot VMI 33-0. VMI was packing the middle, but leaving back corners wide open, and our forwards were mostly toying with VMI's left and right backs. The Deacs need to work on finishing, as 7 goals was probably the fewest amount of goals they should have scored given their chances, but Wake is excellent in the midfield. I don't know what possession was, but it was at least 80% to 20%, and was probably even more lopsided than that. Hayden Partain, Sam Fink and Tane Gent also scored goals for Wake Forest.

Wake Forest (4-3,1-1) will take on Clemson this Friday night in a pivotal ACC contest. They return to Spry Stadium next Tuesday when they host Akron. That game promises to be excellent.
