[ACC WOMEN] It took more than three and a half hours to complete, but North Carolina prevailed over Florida State, 2-1, Thursday in overtime in a battle of ACC women's powerhouses before 1,925 fans at the Seminole Soccer Complex.

Freshman Meghan Klingenberg had the game-winning goal for the Tar Heels in the 95th minute after the game was delayed in each half -- 109 minutes in all -- because of the weather. Klingenberg scored when FSU freshman Erin McNulty let a ball from Allie Long slip through her hands and it went right to Klingenberg, who scored from eight yards out.

Dutchwoman Kirsten van de Ven had given the 'Noles the lead in the 47th minute, but UNC pulled even 10 minutes later when sophomore Casey Nogueira scored on a 30-yard blast that deflected into the FSU goal.

DUKE-VIRGINIA (0-2). Virginia, the top-ranked ACC team at No. 4, opened conference play Thursday night with a 2-0 victory at Duke on goals by Kelly Quinn and Julia Falk, the Cavaliers' fifth consecutive win.

"We are pleased with the result," said Virginia coach Steve Swanson. "Anytime you can get a win on the road in the ACC, it is a positive. However, I thought we weren't as sharp as we normally are and our work ethic wasn't where it normally is."

The goals came 80 seconds apart in the second half when Quinn scored on a clip for her fourth goal of the year and then Falk one-timed Quinn's cross into the net for her third goal of the season.

The Cavaliers extended their shutout streak to over 656 minutes, now the longest in school history.

CLEMSON-MARYLAND (1-0). No. 14  Clemson defeated Maryland, 1-0, in double overtime on junior Molly Johnson's header.

"We were not as sharp as we should have been," said Clemson coach Todd Bramble. "We did not have a great week in practice. There was not enough urgency or focus in training and we played that way tonight."

WAKE FOREST-VIRGINIA TECH (3-1). Sophomore Allie Sadow scored twice and set up the third goal by Jill Hutchinson to lead No. 23 Wake Forest past Virginia Tech.
