Notre Damemoved into the top spot in the Soccer America Women's Top 25 with a 2-0 victory over previously unbeaten Louisville on Sunday.

The Irish (9-0-0) got late goals from defenders Carrie Dew and Ashley Jones to subdue Louisville in the Big East match. Notre Dame's game against Cincinnation Friday had been called off because of lightning. The Irish were leading, 1-0, in the 50th minute. Louisville also had its game at DePaulcalled off because of lightning.

Notre Dame's ascension to the top spot followed then-No. 1 Florida State's first loss of the season Thursday night at North Carolina. The Seminoles bounced back Sunday afternoon with a 2-0 win over ACC rival N.C. State. Selin Kuralay and India Trotter each scored a goal.

North Carolina improved to 10-1-0 with a 6-1 win over Miami (Fla.) on Sunday. Six different players scored for the Heels, who recovered from an early 1-0 deficit to put the game away with four goals in a span of 23 minutes early in the second half.

The big women's game of the weekend took place Friday night on the West Coast, where Santa Clara came out firing from all cylinders and ran all over UCLA, defeating the Bruins, 3-0, in front of 3,471 fans at Buck Shaw Stadium. Meagan Snell scored a pair of goals in the match, while Kiki Bosio netted her first collegiate goal.

Of the six teams that began the weekend with unbeaten and untied records, only Notre Dame and Navy (10-0-0) remain perfect. Villanova's 10-game winning streak was snapped when the Wildcats were held to a 0-0 tie by Rutgers on Sunday. Central Michiganlost for the first time Friday when it fell to Ohio, 2-1. The Chippewas turned around two days later and knocked Akron from the unbeaten and untied ranks with a 1-0 victory. Old Dominion lost its first game, falling to Delaware, 3-1, in CAA action.
