Virginia men's soccer made their second appearance in four years at the College Cup on Friday, looking for a better result then their last time out.
On Friday, Virginia's NCAA Semi-final match with Wake Forest started in favor of the Demon Deacons. Andy Lubahn's shot in the first half hit off the crossbar, but both teams ended up with seven shots in the first half.
Early in the start of the second half, Virginia got on the board as Tony Tchani notched his eighth goal of the season off a one-timer from a Jonathan Villanueva miss. The lead, however, was short lived. In the 70th minute, The Demon Deacons drew even as Diego Restrepo's shutout streak was ended at 1176 minutes at 51 seconds, as Corben Bone notched the equalizing score.
In extra time, Virginia's golden goal came from Brian Ownby, as he chipped in the winner while being double covered from 20 yards out.
Virginia will now face Akron, who won their semi final match up with UNC on Friday night on penalty kicks.
Kick off in the National Championship is set for 1 p.m. on Sunday.
