    Official Wake website begs to differ slightly. Loyola (MD) listed as an exhibition game.

    "Wake Forest returns home for another exhibition against Loyola Maryland on Aug. 18 before opening the regular season against No. 2 Indiana on Aug. 24. "

    Correction appreciated. BTW, any reason for concern with the 4-4 result at Furman or are college exhibitions games meaningless?

    Preseason, particularly for a team like Wake, is about getting a look at players in game situations, not necessarily about winning. Wake noted that they played 21! guys, including 3 goal keepers. Not likely to see three keepers in a game that counts, barring a really unusual set of injuries.

    Muuss commented, "Everyone who was healthy played at least 30 minutes," Muuss added. "We have a lot to figure out in terms of having our best players in the best spots at the right time of the match."

    Wake probably got something close to Furman's best shot.

    Freshman Isaiah Parente scored twice. That seems like a good sign.

    Dunwell, Cases-Mundet and several other probably starters didn't start.

    Cases Mundet
    DeShields
    DeZart
    Dunwell

    Gdula
    Holcomb
    Lapa
    McMaster
    Raben

    Staring XI tonight. I would guess this right now is strongest XI, which obviously a different XI from Furman.

    Deacs up early. If teams think they’re going to come in and by physical and disrupt our game, I think this team might not be one that’s going to struggle with physicality.

    Indiana defense dominating pace of play, we have 0 shots this half. Definitely not the Wake soccer i'm used to.

    D1 college soccer might be the only major sport where a live game can be slowed down by a little confused kid running around with the game ball.
