[VIRGINIA-MARYLAND] No. 7 Maryland went into its ACC opener at No. 17 Virginia having allowed only one goal in eight games, but the Cavaliers ran all over the Terrapins, handing them their first loss of the season with a 4-1 victory.

Caroline Miller scored twice -- both on rebounds of her own shots -- to lead the Cavaliers, who outshot Maryland, 18-6.

“That was a terrific win against a great Maryland team,” said Virginia coach Steve Swa nson. “That was a team that had only given up one goal all year and we put four on them. Our attack deserves credit for creating a lot of chances and finishing them. I thought this was our most consistent game of the season and we learned a lot from our mistakes last weekend. We can take a lot of confidence from this type of performance.”

Virginia took the lead in the 14th minute when Gloria Douglas scored from six yards. The Cavaliers doubled their lead in the 49th minute when Miller had her shot from the top of the 18-yard box blocked by a defender but the rebound came right back to her, and she curled her rebound effort just inside the far post.

Maryland cut the lead in half in the 56th minute when Olivia Wagner’s free kick from just outside the penalty area pinballed off a defender for her fifth goal of the season, but Virginia answered four minutes later with Miller’s second of the night and team-leading ninth of the season. She headed a shot off the crossbar, but for the second time on the night took her own rebound and scored on the second effort.

The Cavaliers closed out the scoring in the 77th minute on first-year player Kaili Torres' her first collegiate goal.

"This was an eye-opener tonight," admitted Maryland coach Brian Pensky. "Virginia played with an edge, as if they had something to prove. And we didn't play with that same edge. It starts with me, as the coach of this team. We'll all learn from this, fix some things, and get better in a hurry, before Sunday."
