Friday: No. 1 North Carolina 2, New Mexico 1
Top-ranked North Carolina surrendered a goal to New Mexico in the 10th minute but rallied past the Lobos on second-half goals by Crystal Dunn and Caroline Lindquist to triumph 2-1 before 3,242 fans at Fetzer Field.
The game was second contest of the day in the Carolina Nike Classic, following a 1-0 win by No. 12 Duke against Kennesaw State in the opener. The Tar Heels improved to 3-0 with the win against the Lobos while New Mexico fell to 1-2 with the loss.
UNC outshot the Lobos 21-3 on the game and had a 7-2 edge in corner kicks. Ulrich finished with seven saves for UNM while Carolina had two saves. Anna Sieloff played the first 45 minutes in goal for UNC, making one save. Bryane Heaberlin played the second 45 minutes in goal and also made one save. Heaberlin earned the win in goal to improve to 3-0 on the season.
Friday: No. 3 Florida State 3, No. 8 Florida
Three opening-half goals gave No. 3 Florida State a 3-0 win against No. 8 Florida Friday evening in front of a crowd of 4,279 — the fifth largest ever at James G. Pressly Stadium in Gainesville, Fla.
Dagny Brynjarsdottir scored two goals in a span of two minutes and nine seconds in the first half for her first career multi-goal game, while Michaela Hahn tallied her first career multi-point game with a goal and an assist as the Seminoles defeated the Gators for the third year in a row.
The win for Florida State marked its second consecutive shutout victory against Florida and its third shutout in the last five meetings. It also marked FSU’s first three-game winning streak in the series, while the three-goal margin for the Seminoles was their largest in 21 all-time meetings against the Gators.
“Every time we play the University of Florida, it’s a hard fought game between two good teams,” head coach Mark Krikorian said. “We capitalized on some opportunities in the first half and we were able to separate the game a little bit. In the second half we gave up a little bit of territory trying to protect the game, but Florida is a good team and they’re going to win a lot of games.
Friday: No. 4 UCLA 2, No. 20 Marquette 1
The Golden Eagles struck first when freshman Ashley Handwork netted her first collegiate goal just 45 seconds into the contest, but No. 4 UCLA ultimately prevailed 2-1. The Bruins (3-0) evened the score at 1-1 at the 4:27 mark when Darian Jenkins scored an unassisted goal from the right wing.
The 1-1 score carried into halftime and until 60:59 when Sam Mewis took the ball from the top corner of the box and found the back of the net. It was a third consecutive shot for UCLA and gave the Bruins a 2-1 advantage.
UCLA outshot Marquette 19-13 in the game and 15-5 in the second half. Bruin goalkeeper Katelyn Rowland recorded four saves while earning the victory, including three stops in the second half.
Friday: No. 5 Virginia 5, No. 9 Penn State 1
The No. 5 Virginia women’s soccer team recorded a four-goal victory against a top-10 opponent for second consecutive game, downing No. 7 Penn State 5-1 on Friday night in front of 2,609 fans at Klöckner Stadium. Five different Cavaliers scored as Virginia, which improved to 3-0 on the season.
Sophomore forward Makenzy Doniak led the Cavaliers with a goal and an assist, while senior forward Gloria Douglas and junior midfielder Danielle Colaprico each had a pair of assists.
Penn State (1-1-1) took an early lead in the seventh minute of play. Mallory Weber’s cross found Maya Hayes inside the six-yard box, who tapped in her third goal of the season. It marked the first time this season that the Cavaliers have trailed. The Cavaliers responded well, scoring three goals in the ensuing eight minutes.
Virginia outshot Penn State 27-9 and had a 5-2 corner kick advantage. First-year goalkeeper Morgan Stearns made two saves for Virginia, while the Nittany Lions’ Brett Eckerstrom made eight saves at the other end.
Saturday: No. 6 BYU 3, Nebraska 0
The Cougars improved to 2-0 on the season with a 3-0 victory against Nebaska at home.
Elena Medeiros started the scoring in the 42nd minute off an assist from Niki Fernandes and the squads went into halftime with BYU up 1-0.
BYU’s lead doubled when Cloee Colohan scored in the 52nd minute, assisted by Colett Jepson Smith’s free kick. Marissa Nimmer finished out the scoring off an assist from Kyleigh Royall in the 86th minute. All three goals were the scorers’ first of the season.
Senior goalkeeper Erica Owens saved all four shots on goal she saw.
The win was BYU’s first against Nebraska in program history.
Friday: No. 7 Notre Dame 4, Oakland 0
The Fighting Irish shut out the Golden Grizzlies as a part of the Notre Dame adidas Invitational.
Lauren Bohaboy scored her fourth goal of the season just 2:06 into the game from 10 yards out on the right wing of the box, off an assist from Crystal Thomas. Thomas then assisted Karin Simonian in the 48th minute, followed by a Morgan Andrews goal assisted by Lauren Bohaboy seven minutes later. Anna Gilbertson finished off the scoring in the 69th minute, assisted by Mandy Laddish.
Notre Dame out-shot Oakland 19-9 and Irish goalkeeper Kaela Little made four saves.
Friday: No. 10 Wake Forest 2, North Texas 1, 2OT
Just when it looked like North Texas might steal a point against No. 10 Wake Forest at Spry Stadium, Katie Stengel dashed the Mean Green’s hopes.
Wake Forest’s all-time leading scorer blasted a free kick from 23 yards into the back of the net in the 106th minute to give the Deacons (3-0) a 2-1 double overtime win against the visiting Mean Green (2-1).
The Demon Deacons controlled the first half and got on the board in the 32nd minute courtesy of a goal by Jackie McSally, but the Mean Green equalized just after halftime on a Karla Pineda goal in the 46th minute.
A languid second half and first overtime period followed in the stifling humidity at Spry Stadium, with neither team seriously threatening to go in front until the Demon Deacons drew a foul at the top of the box and Stengel’s shot found twine.
Stengel’s hot start to the season continued Friday night. The three-time All-American netted her third goal of the season, and second game-winner, to go with three assists tallied in the season opener against Kentucky. McSally, a defender, once again contributed on the offensive end by scoring the opening goal.
