NCAA Soccer: DI Mem’s College Cup-Virginia vs Wake Forest Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

The Wake Forest Demon Deacons fell short to the Virginia Cavaliers in the NCAA Semifinal. A rainy game, Wake Forest had key opportunities early but ultimately came up just a bit short, falling to Virginia, 2-1.

Consider the senior class, victors in 72 games over the last four years, helping keep the Deacs as a national powerhouse in NCAA Men’s Soccer. Like the article by Les Johns highlights here, the team has now reached the College Cup six times in the last 13 seasons, cementing Wake Forest as a team that is consistently in the elite.

Thank you to the coaches and players, especially the seniors such as Bruno Lapa, Allistar Johnston, Joey DeZart, for representing the university with “a lot of class and a lot of guts” like Coach Bobby Muuss said in the post-game conference. Wake Forest Soccer will only continue to build off of the strong postseason run and look to compete for years to come.
