#1 UVa Women's Soccer Beats Miami; Makes History with 17-0 Record
The top-ranked Virginia women's soccer team beat Miami 4-0 Thursday night at Klockner Stadium to improve to 17-0 on the season, Virginia's best start ever.
UVa (17-0, 11-0 ACC) has won a school-record 17 straight games, besting the previous mark set by the 1990 team (16-0).
Coach Steve Swanson said, "There was a chance to make history and when you have that chance you want to make the most of that and I just reminded them of that. We just talked about the chance to put our stamp on this 2013 team, to put a stamp on some Virginia soccer history for all the great teams that have played here that says something."
Morgan Brian and Molly Menchel each scored first half goals for the Cavaliers. Makenzy Doniak and Amber Fry scored in the second half. Alexis Shaffer and Emily Sonnett each had two assists.
Brian said, "I think right now we're playing 45-60 minutes of soccer and I think for us to do what we want to do this season we have to put more than that together and I think we're headed toward 90 minute games and playing good soccer all the way throughout defending better as a team, and tonight you saw putting our chances away."
The Wahoos outshot the Hurricanes 28-3 in the victory. #1 Virginia will host #3 Florida State Sunday at 2pm.
The game will be the first time Klockner Stadium has hosted a match-up of two teams ranked in the Top 3.
