RALEIGH, N.C. - Virginia took an early 1-0 lead but couldn't hold on losing to ACC rival North Carolina State 2-1 in Double Overtime. Freshman forward NIck Olivencia had both goals for the Pack, including the game-winner in the second sudden-death overtime period.

The Wolfpack knotted the score at 1-1 on Nick Olivencia's first goal with 5:11 to play in the first half. Olivencia took a cross form sophomore Sebastian Rodriguez, attempted a shot, then headed in the deflection of his first shot-attempt.

The Wolfpack defense was able to keep the 'Hoos from scoring again despite 18 shots-on-goal in the second half and overtime periods. N.C. State's senior goalkeeper Dan Alexander recorded 14 saves in the game, including 10 aftr the half.
