DEACONS HEADED TO COLLEGE CUP FINAL

WAKE FOREST 2, VIRGINIA TECH 0

Despite inaccurate reports to the contrary from "happy" Hokies at Xmas Party #1 (thanks Howard, Morrison & Howard!) last night, Marcus Tracy led Wake Forest to the championship game in the NCAA Men's College Cup, scoring twice in the second half of the Demon Deacons' 2-0 semifinal victory over ACC rival Virginia Tech.

Tracy scored on a leaping header in the 51st minute and completed the scoring in the 83rd minute to send Wake Forest to the NCAA championship game for the first time in school history. The Demon Deacons (21-2-2) will play for the national title Sunday against Ohio State, a 1-0 winner over Massachusetts in the second semifinal.
