[ACC]Tiffany McCarty’s goal in the 86th minute proved to be the difference Sunday afternoon as No. 1 Florida State defeated No. 5 Maryland, 1-0, at Ludwig Field and clinched the 2012 ACC regular-season title.
 
Frenchwoman Ines Jaurena sent a beautiful cross into the box that McCarty one-timed into the back of the net for the goal.
 
“We have shown to be consistent over my eight years which is really important for us,” said said FSU coach Mark Krikorian on the Seminoles clinching the regular-season title. “We don’t want to be a one-year wonder and we have proven that with a conference tournament championship last year, a regular-season championship in 2009 and now again this year.  I think that is a fairly strong statement about the health of our program.  We are going to continue to fight and hopefully get better after every game.”

-- No. 12 Wake Forest moved into second place in the ACC with a 2-1 win over No. 7 North Carolina, the Demon Deacons' first win over Carolina since 2000. Goals by Katie Stengelin the 25th minute and Annick McBryar in the 48th minute proved enough for the Demon Deacons to hold off a late charge by the Tar Heels.

-- No. 11 Virginia clinched a spot in the ACC Tournament in emphatic fashion, downing Virginia Tech 5-0 on Sunday night at Thompson Field. Senior forward Caroline Miller led the Cavaliers with three goals and an assist, tying the school record for points in a game with seven. The loss left the Hokies in ninth place in the ACC with one game to play. Only the top eight teams make the playoffs.
