[COLLEGE WOMEN: Weekend] No. 1 North Carolina beat a pair of Top 10 teams, No. 2 UCLA and No. 9 West Virginia, to confirm its status as the top team in women's soccer.

Crystal Dunn scored her fifth goal in five games to break scoreless deadlock and lead the Tar Heels past UCLA, 1-0, on the first day of the Duke Nike Classic. Carolina outshot the Bruins, 23-6, but Katelyn Rowland was brilliant in goal for UCLA with seven saves, including top-class stops on Dunn and Alex Newfield in the first half.
 
On Sunday, the Tar Heels jumped out a 4-0 lead in the opening 47 minutes and then held off a second-half rally by West Virginia to win, 4-2. Dunn was one of four different players to score for North Carolina, while Newfield assisted on two goals.

-- Rowland came up big again on Sunday with clutch first-half saves on Kim DeCesare and Toni Payne as UCLA beat  No. 12 Duke, 2-1. The Bruins got goals by Rosie White in the eighth minute and freshman Darian Jenkins in the 78th minute.

IMPRESSIVE CAVS. One of the most impressive performances of the weekend was No. 4 Virginia's 6-0 demolition of previously unbeaten and untied Rutgers, 6-0, on Friday night. Junior Danielle Colaprico scored twice, and Morgan Brian, returning from national team duty, Amber Fry and Alexis Shaffer each had a goal and an assist for the Cavaliers. On Sunday, Brian had two goals and an assist to lead Virginia to a 3-0 win over Rutgers. Makenzy Doniak added a goal and an assist.

Top 25 Action ...

-- No. 5 Stanford extended its home unbeaten streak to 70 -- the second longest in NCAA Division I history -- with a 3-0 win over No 17 Maryland Sunday. Transfer Taylor Uhl headed in two goals off Courtney Verloo corner kicks and freshman Ryan Walker-Hartshorn scored in her first collegiate start at forward.

GOALIE HITS WINNING PK. Goalkeeper Megan Kinneman made seven saves and buried the deciding penalty kick herself in the 65th minute of play to lead LSU to a 1-0 win over USC, handing the No. 13 Women of Troy their first loss in five games.

Crowd Count ...

For the second time in a week, BYU has broken its attendance record at South Field. A crowd of 5,402 fans watched the No. 7 Cougars beat Utah, 1-0, on a penalty kick by freshman Ashley Hatch in the 88th minute to capture the Deseret First Duel.
