[ACC: Women] No. 1 Virginia, the nation’s lone unbeaten and untied team, improved to 14-0-0 with a 2-0 win at No. 11 Wake Forest on goals by sophomore forward Brittany Ratcliffe and freshman midfielder Alexis Shaffer. No. 12 Virginia Tech handed No. 5 Notre Dame its second loss in four days and third straight ACC loss. No. 3 Florida State and No. 6 North Carolina both earned shutout wins, while Duke won its first game since Sept. 12.

Virginia dominated the Demon Deacons, outshooting them, 15-3.  First-year goalkeeper Morgan Stearns needed to make only one save to record her fifth shutout of the season.

“This has always been a tough place for us to get a result, so we are happy to get the win,” said Virginia coach Steve Swanson. “We started a little slow today as there was a little residual effects from Thursday night. We moved the ball well at times a created some chances, especially in the second half. The only thing we could have done better was finish a few more of the chances we created. Wake is a good team and we knew this was going to be a good test for us. It was also good for our team to get the shutout.”

-- No. 12 Virginia Tech handed No. 5 Notre Dame its second loss in four days with a 1-0 decision on a goal from second-half substitute Ellie Zoepfl with less than four minutes remaining in regulation. Notre Dame now has lost three consecutive matches and is winless in four in a row for the first time since 1989, the program’s second season.

-- Anna McClung, Dagny Brynjarsdottir, Marta Bakowska-Mathews and Carson Pickett all scored as No. 3 Florida State handed Pittsburgh its ninth straight loss in its first ACC season with a 4-0 decision. FSU finished with a 31-0 advantage in shots and 14-0 margin in corners.
 
-- Kelly McFarlane took a great pass from Crystal Dunn and scored the far corner in the 65th minute to give No. 6 North Carolina a 1-0 win at Boston College. The Tar Heels improved to 12-2-0 and 5-2-0 in the ACC.

-- Duke won for the the first time since Sept. 12 when it knocked off Maryland, 2-1, in College Park. The Blue Devils got goals from Toni Payne and Kelly Cobb to take a 2-0 lead before the hour mark, and they effectively shut down a late Terrapin effort after Cory Ryan's goal cut the lead in half in the 69th minute.
