[NORTH CAROLINA-VIRGINIA] No. 14 Virginia beat No. 4 North Carolina, 1-0, in Chapel Hill on Caroline Miller's golden goal. It was the Cavaliers’ first ever win over the Tar Heels in 38 meetings between the teams (1-35-2).

Freshman Morgan Brian played a ball behind the defense that found the run of Miller, who fired it into the corner of the net for her team-leading 10th goal of the season in the 105th minute.

“That win is as good as it gets,” said Virginia coach Steve Swanson. “I am just so proud of the players, they played terrific. We were prepared and did all the little things during the week to get ready for this game. It was great to see them get rewarded in the end. We had a couple chances to win it in the second half and in the first overtime, but we kept on pushing and got the goal in the second overtime. This is a great ACC road win for us.”

Virginia goalie Chantel Jones, who extended her school record to 38 career shutouts, had come up with several big stops, saving a header by Brooke Elby off the crossbar in the 67th minute and making a key save later in the first overtime after Emmalie Pfankuch had gotten in behind the UVa defense.

The Cavaliers improved to 8-2-1 overall and 2-1-0 in the ACC, while the Tar Heels fell to 6-2-0 overall and 1-1-0 in the ACC.

In the past two seasons, UNC has suffered its first defeats ever against three ACC opponents: Boston College, Maryland and Virginia -- all at Fetzer Field.
