No. 1 Virginia women’s soccer top-ten clash with tenth-ranked Duke ended in a scoreless draw, on Sunday. Junior goalkeeper Laurel Ivory’s stop in a one-on-one situation during the first overtime session helped preserve the tie for the Cavaliers.

The Wahoos weren’t entirely unsuccessful in South Bend this weekend, as men’s soccer bested the No. 21 Fighting Irish behind a goal from junior midfielder Joe Bell. With the win, the men’s team moved to 8-0-0, marking their best start since 2006.
