Women's Soccer Wins ACC Tournament Opener

Alexandra Beier

The Cavalier women's soccer team took down Maryland 6-1 at Klockner Stadium in the quarterfinals of the ACC Tournament.

You get a goal. Now you get a goal. Now you get a goal.

That's about how the match between the top-ranked Virginia women's soccer team and the visiting Maryland Terrapins on Sunday afternoon at Klockner Stadium. The Cavaliers took a 4-1 lead into the half and coasted to a 6-1 win.

Five different Virginia players scored on the day, including three named Morgan (what?!?). Junior all-everything Morgan Brian had two goals and an assist. Fellow junior Mary Morgan had a goal and an assist. Freshman Morgan Reuther had her first career goal.

The players-not-named-Morgan that scored were junior Danielle Colaprico and senior Amber Fry. The latter also had an assist.

Considering coach Steve Swanson just got a commitment from a high school player named Morgan, I'm wondering if there's something to that name. For the record, it's also the name of my cat. But I don't think she can play soccer.

Virginia takes their 20-game winning streak to the semifinals of the ACC Tournament against rival Virginia Tech. The Hokies - #4 seed in the tournament - defeated #5 seed Notre Dame in double-overtime on Sunday in Blacksburg. The match will start at 5:30pm and is being broadcast on ESPN3 if you're into such things on a Friday night (I know I am).
