Top Ranked UVa Women's Soccer Blanks Clemson 3-0

Posted: Updated:


The top ranked Virginia Women's soccer team blanked ACC rival Clemson 3-0 Sunday at Klockner to remain unbeaten on the season.

The Cavaliers (12-0-0) are 6-0-0 in the ACC for the first time in school history.

Junior Midfielder Danielle Colaprico had a goal and assist to lead Virginia, while junior midfielder Morgan Brian and sophomore forward Makenzy Doniak also scored for the Cavaliers.

Brian scored on a header just three minutes into the game off a free kick from Colaprico. Brian said, "We had practiced those in practice all week and I knew that the back post would be open somewhat so Danni played a great ball to me. She was tugging at my jersey a little bit but I got the biggest surface of my head on it and it went in."

"I thought we did a good job in the first half of doing what we wanted to do but we didn't finish our chances very well," said head coach Steve Swanson. He added, "We had some good opportunities to put some good distance between us and them at halftime and we didn't really do it so that was a little disappointing but I think they're a good team. They're much better. They're organized and well coached. They'll beat some teams down the stretch here so we're happy to get the win and looking forward to our next game on Thursday against Notre Dame."

The Cavaliers outshot Clemson 22-4.

The 'Hoos will return home Thursday to face #3 Notre Dame at 7 p.m. at Klockner Stadium.
