[VIRGINIA-NORTH CAROLINA: Women] No. 1 Virginia improved to 16-0-0 with a 2-0 win over defending champion North Carolina on goals by sophomores Brittany Ratcliffe and Makenzy Doniak Sunday at Fetzer Field.

The Cavaliers tied a school record with their 16th consecutive victory. They handed Carolina just its second multi-goal loss since 1986, a span of 690 games.

"North Carolina has always been a great team and we always know this is going to be a good game," said head coach Steve Swanson. "It was a different kind of game. They do some different things, so we have to prepare for that. There weren't many chances out there for both teams, but we took our chances well. It was a tough game today, but I was proud with how we competed and we tried to put some pieces of good soccer together at times."

Ratcliffe gave the Cavs the lead in the 13th minute on a tap-in off a cross from junior Danielle Colaprico.

Virginia put the game away in the 84th minute when sophomore defender Emily Sonnett won a ball in the midfield and threaded a pass to Doniak, who scored off the breakaway for her team-leading 12th goal of the season.
 
The Cavaliers became the first team to ever win at North Carolina in three consecutive seasons and at all four Tobacco Road schools in the same season.

Virginia's Morgan Brian and North Carolina's Crystal Dunn were with the United States in its 4-0 friendly win over Australia in San Antonio.

"It was difficult not having both Crystal and Morgan here," said Swanson. "I think the game lost something because of that. But we both understand that that is their future and we support that."

The game produced just 10 shots.
