Box Score No. 19 Virginia Tech 3, Oral Roberts 1
TULSA, Okla. - Freshman forward Terry Boland registered the Hokies' first multiple-goal match of the season with the first two tallies of his career as the Virginia Tech men's soccer team earned its fifth consecutive win with a 3-1 victory against Oral Roberts in the second day of the Level 3 Golden Hurricane Classic on Sunday at the Tulsa Track and Soccer Stadium.

The Hokies have not lost since the season opener at VCU on Aug. 31. The program has had two other extended win streaks under head coach Oliver Weiss, recording streaks of at least five consecutive victories between Sept. 27-Oct. 18, 2005 and Oct. 3-17, 2006. Tech set a school record by winning seven consecutive matches during that span in 2005.

Boland and four other Hokies are tied for the team lead in goals at two apiece. His performance was the third multiple-point effort for Tech this season.

Tech (5-1, 1-0 ACC) established control of the match midway through the first half when first-year junior Stefan Hock scored his second goal of the season after corralling a rebounded Alexander Baden shot attempt to give the Hokies a 1-0 advantage at 27:10.

Boland added to the Hokie lead with his first career goal a little more than 14 minutes later at 41:33 to give Tech a two-goal cushion.

Oral Roberts (2-4) made things interesting at 79:43 by firing a loose ball in front of the net to allow the Golden Eagles back into the match.

The Hokies put the contest out of reach in the 88th minute with another Boland goal. The freshman from Brentwood, Pa., retained a pass from Robert Edmans, beat a Golden Eagle defender in a one-on-one situation, then fired a shot with just 2:01 remaining.

Tech went 2-0 at Tulsa's Level 3 Golden Hurricane Classic, the second consecutive tournament in which they did not suffer a defeat.

The Hokies hope to tie the 1980 and 1996 squads for the second-longest winning streaks in school history by earning their sixth consecutive victory at William & Mary on Saturday in Williamsburg, Va. The match will kick off at 7 p.m.
