    Wake looked good tonight. UCF had trouble putting 4 passes together before turning it over for most of the match. Tough one for Marcus to come back to campus and get shelled. Thought UCF was supposed to be a decent team, pretty disappointed in them.

    from the press:

    WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - Senior Steven Curfman dished out three assists and redshirt junior goalkeeper Brian Edwards picked up his school record 19th career shutout as the No. 16 Demon Deacons dissected Central Florida, 5-0, in their season-opener at Spry Stadium Friday night. In the opening match from the 2006 Wake Forest adidas Classic, top-ranked North Carolina shutout William & Mary, 2-0.

    Edwards recorded a save on the only shot he faced the entire evening. The netminder eclipsed the previous career mark of 18.5 held by Mike McGinty (1991-94). The Charlotte, N.C. native has started each of the Demon Deacons last 45 matches between the pipes.

    Curfman and junior defender Julian Valentin opened the scoring for Wake Forest in the 11th minute. After Curfman was awarded a free kick just outside the penalty area, the midfielder whipped in a curling ball that Valentin headed past a diving UCF goalkeeper Marcus Rein.

    The Golden Knights kept the deficit a single goal until the Demon Deacons exploded with four goals in the second-half.

    Curfman was right in the middle of the next two Wake Forest tallies. He received sophomore Michael Lahoud's cross and found freshman Zack Schilawski streaking across the six-yard box. The rookie buried the one-timer past a charging Rein to make the score, 2-0, at 55:09. Curfman struck just moments later when we found sophomore Lyle Adams alone on the back post. Adams headed home his first career goal giving Wake Forest a 3-0 advantage.

    Sophomore Sam Cronin pushed the Wake Forest lead to 4-0 with his first career goal. The defender hammered a shot from just outside the box past Rein at 64:18. Sophomore Jamie Franks picked up the assist.

    Freshman Eric Hummel closed the offensive onslaught with a goal in the 86th minute. Sophomore Cline Beam's service found Hummel in the penalty area and the freshman beat Rein to the upper far corner.

    The Demon Deacons outshot UCF, 21-1. In fact, the Golden Knights did not pick up their first shot of the match until the 83rd minute of action. Rein, who spent two years at Wake Forest, registered four saves on the night
