[VIRGINIA-BOSTON COLLEGE] No. 6 Virginia knocked off Boston College, 3-2, for its first win ever over a top-ranked team on Meghan Lenczyk’s golden goal in the 97th minute.

Lenczyk’s goal, her ninth goal of the year, completed the Cavs' comeback from a 2-1 deficit on a pair of BC goals by Victoria DiMartino, the second with a rocket from 30 yards for her ACC-leading 11th goal of the year.

Virginia equalized in the 77th minute whenLauren Alwine’s corner kick foundColleen Flanagan, who headed home for just her second career goal.

The Cavs scored the winner when Sinead Farrelly sent a cross toward the corner of the six-yard box and Lenczyk beat BC keeperJillian Mastroiannito the ball and lifted it over her and into the net.

“It is one thing to come back to get a tie in a game like this, but to come back and get the win shows that this team has the intangibles you want to see in your team,” said Virginia coach Steve Swanson, who earned his 250th career win. “Those are the things you need in order to succeed at this level. Boston College is a very good team and they are going to be tough to beat in the league. This win, especially coming back in the second half, says a lot about our team.”

Next up for the Cavs at Klockner Stadium: No. 3 North Carolina, the two-time defending national champion.
