CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - Laura Janssen scored the game-winning goal with 1:24 remaining in the match, and the Virginia field hockey team beat Syracuse 1-0 on Friday on the Blue Turf.

The goal came off a penalty corner, where Janssen cut to the cage to deflect in a shot from junior back Amber Ezechiels following the stick stop at the top of the circle.

Sophomore goalkeeper Taylor Henriksen made four saves for her second consecutive shutout.

UVA (2-1, 2-0 ACC) and Syracuse will be back in action for a non-conference match on Sunday at noon.
