WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - The No. 20 Wake Forest women's soccer team posted a 1-0 shutout victory over No. 21 Maryland on a cold and rainy Friday night at Spry Stadium. Wake's Lindsey Griffin scored the game's only goal of the game, converting a penalty kick late in the first half.

The Deacs outshot the Terps 21-5, placing 10 shots on goal and allowing none. Stacy Roeck, Emily Taggart and Lindsey Griffin fired three shots apiece on frame for Wake Forest, but Maryland goalkeeper Riki-Ann Serrins (Mission Viejo, Calif.) proved resilient, making nine saves on the day.

With under nine minutes remaining in the first half, Roeck was dragged down inside the Terrapins' box, to set up a penalty kick for the Demon Deacons. Griffin cashed in the kick, her fifth goal on the season. Wake Forest goalkeeper Tracy Chao earned the shutout victory.

Wake Forest improved to 6-2 overall and 1-0 in the ACC while Maryland fell to 4-5 overall and 0-2 in the ACC.

Maryland opened a homestand on Wednesday night, when the Terps play host to George Mason at 7:30 p.m. to finish a men's-women's doubleheader.
