[ACC TOURNAMENT; Quarterfinals] Caroline Miller scored in the 11th minute and No. 10 Virginia held on for 1 -0 win at No. 8 North Carolina in the ACC Tournament quarterfinals at Fetzer Field on Sunday afternoon. The Cavaliers limited Carolina to four shots -- the fewest in its 34-year history. No. 1 Florida State, No. 6 Wake Forest and No. 7 Maryland also won to move into Friday's semifinals in Cary, N.C.
 
Miller's goal, her 14th goal of the season and her third this year against the Tar Heels, came after she took a through ball from Morgan Brian, eluded UNC goalkeeper Adelaide Gay and finished into an empty net.

UNC failed to put a show on goal in the game as Virginia goalkeeper Danielle DeLisle was not forced to make a save.
 
“Anytime you play Carolina you have to solve their pressure,” said Virginia coach Steve Swanson. “I thought we did a good job of that. They squeeze the field and if you can get out of those pockets of pressure you can find some open space. The goal was certainly a result of that. We also were able to limit their chances. When you can hold Carolina to just four shots, that is a credit to how well we played defensively.”

--  Top-seeded Florida State took the first step in defending its ACC championship Sunday with a 4-0 win over No. 22 Boston College to gain revenge for its first loss of the season to the Eagles 10 days earlier. Tiffany McCarty had two goals and Dagny Brynjarsdottir scored a goal and two assists.
 
-- Senior Danielle Hubka scored in the fifth minute of the first overtime to send Maryland into the ACC semifinals with a 2-1 victory over Miami (Fla.). Alex Reed had given Maryland a 1-0 lead in the 36th minute, but the Hurricanes pulled even on a penalty kick by Tara Schwitter in the 73rd minute.

-- Marisa Park scored just 52 seconds into overtime to keep Wake Forest with a 1-0 win over Duke. The Blue Devils now have only one ACC Tournament win over the last eight contests.
