[COLLEGE WOMEN: Thursday]Anson Dorrance picked up the 750th win of his women's coaching career as No. 1 North Carolina held off No. 22 Virginia Tech, 2-1, in the ACC opener for both teams.

The Tar Heels had lost on their last two trips to Blacksburg, but they won this time on goals from Paige Nielsen and Kealia Ohai.

Jazmine Reeves scored off a corner kick for the Hokies in the 87th minute, but UNC goalkeeper Bryane Heaberlin preserved the win a save on a header in the box by Murielle Tiernan with just 18 seconds left in the game.

Dorrance's record is 750-49-29 in 35 seasons at the helm of the women's program he started in 1979. What was the significance of the win?

“What that means is I’m hellaciously old,” Dorrance, 62, told the Roanoke Times.

He also won 172 games with the men's program.

ACC openers ...

-- No. 2 Virginia opened ACC play with a 3-0 victory over newcomer Syracuse to complete a perfect seven-game homestand. Sophomore forwards Makenzy Doniakand Brittany Ratcliffe each had a goal and an assist, and U.S. international Morgan Brianhas two assists.

-- No. 4 Wake Forest and No. 7 Florida State played to a 0-0 tie. The Seminoles outshot Wake, 10-3, but neither team could score in a match that featured two of the nation's top goalies, Kelsey Wys (Florida State) and Aubrey Bledsoe (Wake Forest).

-- Sophomore forward Crystal Thomas collected a goal and an assist, while juniors Karin Simonian and Sammy Scofield also scored goals as No. 8 Notre Dame beat N.C. State, 3-1, in its ACC debut in muggy Raleigh.

-- After scoring only five goals the first six matches, No. 12 Duke's attack came alive with three second-half goals from Toni Payne, Kaitlyn Kerrand Kelly Cobb, her first of the season. in a 3-0 win over previously unbeaten and untied Miami. Redshirt sophomore Ali Kershnerstopped a penalty kick in the first half to keep Miami off the scoreboard.
 
-- Ashley Spivey broke a 1-1 tie in the 96th minute with a golden goal to give No. 24 Maryland a 2-1 win over Clemson. Hayley Brockput Maryland ahead in the 35th minute, but Clemson responded just five minutes into the second half on a goal from freshman Catrina Atanda.

MARLBOROUGH BACK TO OLD SELF.Morgan Marlborough, who had 59 goals in three seasons for Nebraska but just one in her first five games after transferring to Santa Clara, broke out of her slump with a hat trick to lead the No. 18 Broncos to a 5-1 win over Iowa State.

After falling behind in the first two minutes, Santa Clara roared back for its fourth win in a row.  Julie Johnston added a goal and two assists.

“I felt like I was back to my old self out there today,” said Marlborough. “I had very high expectations of myself and what I could bring to the team. The first few games I felt like I wasn’t doing my job. I’m a forward, I’m supposed to score goals. I feel really good because I feel like I did my job. This gives me another boost forward and I feel like I’m a better player now than I used to be. Obviously without the good passes, though, I wouldn’t have scored so a ton of credit goes to my teammates.”

Top 25 action ...

-- No. 14 Michigan improved to 6-0-0 -- its best start ever -- with a 2-0 win over Detroit. The Wolverines held a 27-2 shooting advantage, but didn't get goals from senior co-captains Shelina Zadorsky and Nkem Ezurike until the second half.

-- Oregon held No. 5 BYU to a 0-0 tie in Eugene. Junior goalkeeper Abby Steele made eight saves, while the Ducks had a flurry of chances to nearly find a golden goal in the first overtime period.
