SBI No. 23 Wake Forest dropped No. 1 Maryland from the ranks of the unbeaten on Thursday night, posting a 4-2 victory over the Terrapins in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
The Demon Deacons rode a three-goal second-half rally to overwhelm Maryland, as Ross Tommaselli, Luca Gimenez and Danny Wenzel rattled off three unanswered goals to erase a 2-1 deficit.
The victory helped Wake Forest secure the No. 3 seed in the ACC Tournament. Maryland had already secured the No. 1 seed heading into Thursday’s regular season finale.
Out West, senior Fernando Monge delivered a game-winning goal in overtime to lift UCLA to a 2-1 victory over Stanford. The win pushed the Bruins to within three points of securing the Pac-12 title with two matches remaining.
