GREENSBORO, N.C. - Virginia Tech's Stefan Hock was named Atlantic Coast Conference Men's Soccer Player of the Week after scoring Tech's goal in a 1-1 tie at No. 4 Virginia Friday night in Klockner Stadium in order to extend the No. 12 Hokies' unbeaten streak to eight matches.

The Hokies' eight-match unbeaten streak is the second-longest streak in school history, trailing only a 9-0-1 stretch in 2005.

The honor is the first of Hock's career and he is the second Hokie to earn the ACC's weekly award as Robert Edmans was recongized on Sept. 10.

Hock had three quality scoring chances within the last 20 minutes of the first half and capitalized on his third and final opportunity in the 34th minute. Edmans nailed a cross at the top right of the box that found Hock in stride 10 yards from the net for his team-high fourth goal of the season at 11:18.

The Aschaffenburg, Germany, native is currently tied for fifth among ACC players for goals (4) and is ranked eighth for shots with 23 over Hock's nine games.

The Hokies play their second consecutive top five foe by hosting No. 1 Wake Forest at 7 p.m. on Friday at Tech Soccer Stadium.
