MORNING BRIEFING: Hanks sets Notre Dame record
by Paul Kennedy, October 20th, 2008 8AM



Kerri Hanks scored twice in top-ranked Notre Dame's 2-0 win at Connecticut on Sunday to extend her goal-scoring streak to 10 games and give her 81 career goals, topping Jenny Heft's old school record of 80 tallies.

The Irish have matched their best single-season start in history with 16 wins, originally set back in 2000 by Coach Randy Waldrum's second Irish team.

Other top performances:

-- No. 2 Kelley O'Hara netted two goals and assisted twice on Friday in Stanford's 5-0 win over Washington and followed that up with an insurance goal in the Cardinal's 3-0 win over Washington State on Sunday.

-- No. 5 Casey Nogueira exploded for four goals Friday night, the most by a Tar Heel player in over five years, as visiting North Carolina defeated N.C. State 5-0 at Method Road Soccer Stadium. Nogueira's four goals gave her 17 for the season -- 11 in the past six matches.

-- Princeton has won nine times this year and Sarah Peteraf has had the game-winning goal six times. Her sixth game-winning goal of the season came in the 107th minute of Saturday evening's 2-1 win over Columbia, putting Princeton alone in first place in the Ivy League.

SUN DEVIL UPSET. Karin Volpe scored in the 16th minute and Arizona State held off USC the rest of the way to knock off the Women of Troy, 1-0. USC had run its undefeated streak end at 11 games.

AGGIES SLUMP. Texas A&M lost back-to-back Big 12 games -- its first losses of the seasons -- falling at Kansas, 1-0, on Shannon McCabe's goal on Friday and slumping to Missouri, 3-0, on Sunday on goals by Ashley Hamblin, Kari Adam and Krista Kruse.

SEMINOLES FIND TEMPO. Florida State wrapped up an offensive-powered week scoring five goals for the second straight game in defeating Duke, 5-2, in a battle of Top 25 ACC teams. Freshman Tiffany McCarty led the offensive attack for the Seminoles as she tied a career-high with five points on two goals and an assist. "We came out and established a good tempo to today's game," said FSU coach Mark Krikorian. "Duke is a good team. For us to come away and get a quality win here at home is great for us."

HAGEN RECORD. Freshman Sarah Hagen set a school record with her 17th goal of the season in Wisconsin-Milwaukee's 5-0 victory over Butler Friday night.
