3. WOMEN: No. 1 Irish extend unbeaten streak
October 23rd, 2006 8:24AM



No. 1 Notre Dame (16-0-1) extended its unbeaten streak to 17 games with wins over Villanova (4-2) and Georgetown (1-0),

The game against Villanova was a matchup of the nation's top defenses, but each squad allowed its most goals in a game this season. Sophomore star Kerri Hanks scored the first two Notre Dame goals and added an assist. Villanova freshman Erin Byrnes tied the game in the 49th minute, halting Notre Dame's shutout streak at 492 minutes.

The Irish, who play Cincinnati Tuesday in a makeup game before heading into the Big Tournament next weekend, rested two of its top starters, sophomore forward Brittany Bock and senior center back Kim Lorenzen, against the Hoyas. Carrie Dew scored the only goal on a header off a Hanks free kick.

Surging Connecticut, which tied Notre Dame last week, upset West Virginia, 1-0, Friday night, and beat Pittsburgh, 4-2, to its unbeaten streak to six games. Sophomore forward Brittany Tegeler had the only goal in the win over the Mountaineers and scored two goals and added an assist in the come-from-behind victory over Pitt. West Virginia had been unbeaten in its last 15 games at Dick Dlesk Soccer Stadium.

NAVAL BLOCKADE. Navy extended the nation's longest winning streak to 18 games with Patriot League wins over Lehigh (4-0) and Lafayette (4-0).

The Mids have played more than 851 minutes since last giving up a goal. Navy has set school season records for wins (18) and shutouts (15).

REGULAR-SEASON CHAMPIONS. Navy puts its perfect season on the line Thursday when it hosts Penn State, which captured its ninth consecutive Big Ten title with a 2-1 win over Northwestern on Sunday.

William & Mary clinched the CAA regular-season championship with a 2-0 victory over UNC Wilmington and improved its unbeaten streak to 14 matches, establishing a program record. Hartford earned the America East regular-season crown with a 1-0 victory over Boston University and will be the No. 1 seed in the conference championship that begins this week.

ACC UPSETS. North Carolina, which has the second longest winning streak at 17 games, was idle. Elsewhere in the ACC, Duke upset Florida State, 3-1, on Sunday. Rebecca Moros, Darby Kroyer and Lorraine Quinn scored for the Blue Devils as FSU allowed one more than in the second half than it had in its first 15 games.

Boston College beat Virginia, 1-0,  Friday night at Klockner Stadium. Gina DiMartino's goal in the 15th minute was all the Eagles needed to win, despite the Cavaliers outshooting them, 13-3. Two days later, Virginia had more bad luck as it lost to Maryland, 1-0, after having Alli Fries sent off in the 10th minute.

BIG 12'S BIG THREE. Texas A&M clinched its third straight Big 12 regular-season championship with a 4-2 win over Missouri in front of 3,285 fans at the Aggie Soccer Stadium.

Oklahoma State finished second with a 2-0 win over Nebraska. Last year, the Cowgirls finished ninth and missed out on the Big 12 Tournament. Their previous highest finish was seventh place. Third-place Texas tied the school record for most regular-season wins (14) with a 4-1 victory over Iowa State.
