[WOMEN'S ROUNDUP: Friday] Two days after playing for the USA in its 4-1 win over Switzerland, 2013 Soccer America Women's Player of the Year Morgan Brian opened her senior season with a pair of assists as No. 3 Virginia beat Marshall, 3-0.

Brian found Makenzy Doniak, just back from the U-20 Women's World Cup, and Kaili Torres. Alexis Shaffer had the third goal for the Cavaliers on the hour mark.

“We feel good about the win, but we left a lot out there in terms of the performance,” said UVA coach Steve Swanson. “I think we can be a lot better. We had 26 shots tonight, but not many in goal. We got into good positions, but didn’t create many quality chances.

Elsewhere ...

-- No. 1 UCLA began its NCAA title defense with a 3-0 win over Maryland in a match it finished with a 22-0 edge in shots. UCLA scored its first two goals 30 seconds apart in the 27th minute from Megan Oyster on a header and Sam Mewis with a shot from about 30 yards out. Rosie White finished the scoring in the 33rd minute. U.S. U-20 goalkeeper Katelyn Rowland picked up her 37th career shutout, leaving her just one away from tying the all-time school record held by Valerie Henderson.
 
-- No. 10 Duke fell 1-0 to Ohio State on Alexis Degler's goal in the 67th minute. Blue Devils started a record five freshmen -- Casey Martinez, Imani Dorsey, Ashton Miller, Morgan Reid and Schuyler DeBree -- and had a 22-7 edge in shots and hit the crossbar three times.

-- Michigan State knocked off No. 24 San Diego State, 3-1, scoring on its only three shots on goal by Mary Kathryn Fiebernitz, Rachel Van Poppelin and Jamie Cheslik in a match otherwise dominated by the Aztecs, who outshot the Spartans by a 32-10 margin.

-- No. 6 Florida got two goals from senior Jillian Graff and a third goal by 2013 Soccer America Freshman of the Year Savannah Jordan as the Gators neat Miami, Fla., 3-0.

-- Kelley Monogue scored two goals and set up Shea Groom for the late winner No. 8 Texas A&M a 4-3 win over Dayton before 2,876 fans in College Station. Nicole Waters led the Flyers with two goals.

-- Preseason All-American Stephanie McCaffrey had a goal and an assist as No. 13 Boston College beat Colgate, 3-1.

-- Center back Taylor Leach was the difference for No. 25 South Carolina with a pair of second-half goals in its 2-0 win at East Carolina.

WEATHER REPORT. Bad weather wrecked havoc across the country. The start of Duke's match in North Carolina was delayed 59 minutes because of bad weather ... The FCGU-UCF match in Fort Myers, Florida, was canceled due to inclement weather ... Lightning caused Washington State's opener with TCU in Pullman, Washington, to be delayed 2 hours, 49 minutes.
