[ACC: Women] No. 1 Virginia became the first ACC school to have a undefeated and untied regular season in a decade as it downed No. 5 Virginia Tech, 2-0, at Kloeckner Stadium to finish 19-0-0 (13-0-0 in ACC play) with four wins against top five teams. The Cavaliers set a school record for wins in a season with the victory, while the Hokies (14-3-2) suffered just their third defeat of the season, all to top-five opponents.

Senior Amber Fry and sophomore Makenzy Doniak scored, both off assists from senior Annie Steinlage.

The Cavaliers are the first team to post a perfect regular season since Stanford in 2009. They are the first ACC team to accomplish the feat since North Carolina in 2003.

“Just the cumulative effect of the league, going undefeated is really tough,” said UVa coach Steve Swanson. “It is amazing accomplishment. The caliber of the competition, playing every Thursday and Sunday, this league is so tough. I don’t think it has set in yet that we were able to go through the league undefeated. We still haven’t accomplished all our goals for the season, so I know our team is still hungry for more.”

The crowd of 2,252 for Thursday night’s game was the fourth largest in Cavalier women’s history. All four of the largest crowds have come this season.

Virginia will be the No. 1 seed for the 2013 ACC Tournament, which begins with quarterfinal play on Sunday. The Cavaliers will host No. 8 seed Maryland. The four quarterfinal winners will advance to the semifinals Friday at the WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary, N.C.   

-- Marta Bakowska-Mathews’ diving header gave No. 3 Florida State a 2-1 overtime victory over No. 10 Notre Dame inside the Seminole Soccer Complex. The Fighting Irish clung to a one-goal lead before Bakowska-Mathews broke through with the equalizer with 155 seconds left in regulation. The Englishwoman has a career-high six goals.

-- Freshman Cameron Castleberry and junior Brooke Elby scored their first goals of the season and Summer Green scored from the penalty spot as No. 4 North Carolina defeated No. 25 Duke, 3-0, in front of a Halloween night crowd of 1,222. The Tar Heels improved to 16-3-0 overall with three straight wins. They have now exceeded their win total from last year when they won the NCAA championship with a record of 15-5-3.
