No. 3 Virginia extended its unbeaten streak to 12 games with a 2-0 win over Virginia Tech on Thursday night.
The game drew a
record women's crowd of 2,011 and was televised nationally on Fox Soccer Channel. Jen Redmond
set up both Cav goals, feeding Sinead Farrelly
in the 35th minute with a though ball and finding Nikki Krzysik
with a free kick in the 81st minute.
Chantel Jones, who went into the game with a 0.27 goals-against average, the lowest in the nation, posted her 10th shutout of the season.
"You could feel the atmosphere
tonight, which was a combination of the rivalry and the TV cameras," said Cavs coach Steve Swanson
. "To get the first goal was huge because it made them
have to chase the game. The second one was important to get to close out the game."
