MORNING BRIEFING: Notre Dame is only perfect team
by Paul Kennedy, September 29th, 2008 8AM



Top-ranked Notre Dame is the only remaining unbeaten and untied team in the NCAA Division I women's ranks after its 6-0 win over Cincinnati on Sunday.

LSU fell at Mississippi, 1-0, while Oklahoma State tied Colorado, 1-1, in Boulder on Sunday.

Freshman forward Melissa Henderson collected her first career hat trick for Notre Dame, which improved to 10-0-0.

BRONCOS SLUMP. Two days after playing then-No. 2 to a 0-0 tie, Santa Clara fell to Cal, 1-0, on Nikki Schrey's golden goal to fall to 3-6-2.

The game should have been long over. The Bears outshot Santa Clara, 26-3.

"Overall Cal was on the offensive attack more than we were," said SCU coach Jerry Smith. "We were able to stay in the game until the last minutes of the second overtime. It is disappointing, but I thought [goalie] Meagan McCray played well and deserved a better result."
CAVS SWEEP IN FLORIDA. Virginia earned back-to-back wins on the road in the ACC with a 1-0 win at Florida State on Thursday night and a 2-0 win at Miami (Fla.) on Sunday.

The Cavaliers used two first half-goals from Meghan Lenczyk and Alli Fries and another strong defensive performance to improve to 8-1-1 overall.

"This was a great result for us," said Cavs coach Steve Swanson. "To come back after a tough game at Florida State on Thursday and jump out and get some early goals and take control of this game was important. We knew Miami was going to fight hard and we did a good job of battling with them."
