MOST COMMENTED

[VIRGINIA-ST. JOHN'S] No. 14 Virginia posted its second come-from-behind win of the season when Molly Menchel and Gloria Douglas scored goals over the final 20 minutes to rally the Cavaliers to a 2-1 victory over St. John’s in a game postponed from Sunday because of Hurricane Irene.

“I am happy to get a result,” said Virginia coach Steve Swanson. “To come back and win is a tribute to the heart of this team. But we made this game a lot more difficult than it needed it to be. We missed some chances early and that gave them some life. We gave up a soft goal early in the second half and it gave them more life. We can learn a lot from this game, and when you can learn important lessons and still win, that’s a positive.”

The Red Storm was outshot 35-3 but took the lead in the 48th minute when Chelsey Martino got a ball in the midfield, dribbled to the edge of the box and floated a shot just inside the far post.

The Cavaliers finally drew even in the 73rd minute. A Morgan Brian header was saved off the line, but the rebound came right to Menchel, who scored her second goal of the year.

The same scenario produced the winner in the 86th minute, Caroline Miller’s shot towards the far post was saved off the line by a defender, but the rebound went to Douglas, who knocked in the game-winner for her third goal in five games.
