West Virginia repeats as champ

[BIG EAST] Host West Virginia beat Louisville, 2-0, to win the Big East  championship for the second consecutive year before a capacity crowd of more than 1,550 at Dick Dlesk Soccer Stadium.
 
“Special teams do special things, and it takes a special team to win back-to-back championships in this league,” said WVU coach Nikki Izzo-Brown. “You’ll never be disappointed by the hard work these women put on the field.”
 
Senior Blake Miller scored on a penalty kick off the left post in the 28th minute to extend her scoring streak to eighth straight games.
