FRISCO, Texas (AP) -- This time, North Carolina finished the job. Brian Shriver scored less than four minutes in, and goalkeeper Brooks Haggerty held off a Wake Forest flurry down the stretch to put the Tar Heels in the championship of the NCAA men's College Cup with a 1-0 win over defending national champion Wake Forest on Friday night. When the teams met during the ACC regular season on Nov. 1, the Tar Heels blew a 1-0 halftime lead and lost 4-2 victory, giving the Demon Deacons the regular-season title. "We didn't let what happened before get into our heads," Shriver said. "We were going to play hard the entire 90 minutes. We were the better team today." The 13th-seeded Tar Heels (15-7-1) moved on to Sunday's title game against the winner of Friday's second semifinal between Maryland and St. John's. Wake Forest (21-2-1), which included former Newtown High star Marcus Tracy, was the defending NCAA champion and top seed. But the Tar Heels grabbed early momentum when Zach Loyd charged down the right side and crossed to Shriver, who headed a shot past goalkeeper Akira Fitzgerald from 6 yards out 3:56 into the game. Wake Forest has reached the College Cup in each of the last three years, and the Deacons were heavy favorites to get back to the final. But Wake Forest got off to a shaky start and couldn't find an offensive rhythm until the final half-hour.
