Update: …..against Akron who play for the title after a pk win over UNC.
As TSG commented on Twitter, a gorgeous SportsCenter top 10, Brady-to-Moss pitch and catch goal for the Cavs to put them through to Sunday.
See the replay here: (Start at the :35 mark)
• That was a great assist with perfect pace. The keeper doesn’t know if his defenders get there OR if Ownby’s going to keep it on the floor so he has to come out–Ownby sees this and volleys–keeper is caught in no man’s land.
• Wake Forest dominated most of the possession in this one, but Virginia who had not given up a goal in more than 1,000 minutes of play was stoic in defense.
• The best word I can use to describe that Virginia defense is “relaxed.” They never look rattled or even panicked on Wake Forest attacks. The goal the Cavs gave up was flukey, although it came after a blown defensive assignment.
• WF must of hit the crossbar 3 times in the game; they are ruing those misses now.
• Virginia’s counterattacking was sublime and the Cavs’ Ownby around the wingfulls was nearly a done deal everytime.
Great game…if you’re so inclined check out the replay on the 360.
