Recap: Virginia vs. Wake Forest

Charlottesville, VA (Sports Network) - Chad Hedlund kicked three field goals and the Wake Forest Demon Deacons notched a 16-10 win over the Virginia Cavaliers in an ACC clash at Scott Stadium.

Josh Harris ran for 55 yards and a touchdown to help the Demon Deacons (4-3, 2-3 ACC) get back into the win column after dropping three of their previous four contests. Sophomore cornerback Kevin Johnson had a fumble recovery and a key fourth-quarter interception near the end zone.

Phillip Sims threw 253 yards for Virginia (2-6, 0-4) but could not keep the Cavaliers from suffering their sixth straight loss.

Wake Forest took a 7-0 lead on Harris' 16-yard touchdown scamper at the 12:02 mark of the first quarter. The TD was set up by Lovell Jackson's 60-yard punt return on the previous play.

The score would remain that way until the final 20 seconds of the half, when Sims capped a 13-play, 72-yard drive with a 13-yard touchdown pass to Tim Smith to tie the score.

However, Wake Forest started its next drive at the UVA 45-yard line, and Tanner Price completed a 41-yard pass to Brandon Terry down to the 4. After a timeout, Hedlund kicked a 22-yard field goal as time expired to send the Demon Deacons to the locker room with a 10-7 lead.

The Deacs added to their lead with two more field goals by Hedlund in the third quarter (44, 24). A 30-yard field goal by UVA's Ian Frye made cut the deficit to 16-10 with less than a minute to play in the third quarter. The Cavaliers' comeback hopes ended when punt returner Khalek Shepherd lost a fumble with less than two minutes remaining, after the defense had come up with a big stop.

The Demon Deacons entered the game allowing 206 rushing yards per game, but they were able to hold UVA to 48 yards on 32 carries.
