[ACC TOURNAMENT] Morgan Brian, the 2011 Soccer America Freshman of the Year, had two goals and added an assist to lead No. No. 8 Virginia to a 4-2 win over No. 2 Florida in the semifinals of the ACC Tournament Friday at the ACC Tournament at WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary, N.C. Virginia will meet No. 7 Maryland, a 2-0 winner over No. 6 Wake Forest, in Sunday's final.

Caroline Miller and Erica Hollenberg also scored for the Cavaliers, who took a 2-0 lead after 10 minutes, saw their lead evaporate and then put the game away with two goals a minute apart in the second half.

“We are absolutely excited to be moving on to the final,” said Virginia coach Steve Swanson. “That was a good team we beat tonight. It is not often they give up four goals. It was a great effort by our team and we are looking forward to the next one on Sunday.”

Miller's goal marked the fourth consecutive game she has found the back of the net as she became just the third Cavalier in history to reach the 40-career goal mark.
 
“We got beat by a better team today,” said FSU coach Mark Krikorian. “The University of Virginia was sharp as can be and we weren’t good enough.  I guess that is what happens when you play at this level; playing against a better team and on a day like today they will certainly beat you and then punish you for your mistakes; hats off to them.”

Tiffany McCarty paced the Seminole offense with the tying goal and an assist, while Dagny Brynjarsdottir was credited with the first Florida State goal of the match in the 12th minute

MARYLAND-WAKE FOREST.  Hayley Brock scored in the fifth minute and the Terrapins never looked back against Wake Forest. Maryland added a Becky Kaplan goal in the 53rd minute.
