ANGELA HUCLES TIES VIRGINIA ALL-TIME SCORING RECORD: Angela Hucles’ goal 21:22 into the Princeton game gave her 45 career goals and 12 career assists, which places her in a tie for the all-time career points record at the University of Virginia. Andrea Rubio (1989-92) had 36 goals and 30 assists in her career, setting the standard six years ago.
GAME 15: #22 Virginia 1, #13 Clemson 0 — Forward Katie Tracy (Richmond, Va./James River) ripped a shot through the hands of Clemson goalie Katie Carson to score the game-winning goal which helped the University of Virginia defeat Clemson University 1-0 today at Klockner Stadium. The Cavaliers improve their record to 9-4-2 (4-1 ACC) while the Tigers drop to 10-4 (3-2 ACC). In the 28th minute, Tracy received the ball at the top of the penalty box and blasted it towards the goal. The ball flew over the head of the keeper and through her outstretched hands where it sailed into the upper righthand corner of the net. The score put Virginia up 1-0, where it remained for the duration of the game. The Cavaliers had 13 shots and 6 corner kicks while the Tigers had 14 shots and 3 corner kicks. Goalkeeper Megan Boehm (Centennial, Md./Howard), who started in her first game of the season, made 10 saves while Carson made 6.
The Virginia win stops Clemson’s eight game winning streak. The Cavaliers have not scored against the Tigers since 1996, including a 1-0 loss in the first round of the ACC Tournament in 1997.
GAME 16–#22 Virginia 2, Princeton 1 — Virginia freshman Lori Lindsey’s (Indianapolis, Ind./Pike) shot careened off the goalpost and into the net in the second half, giving the Cavaliers a 2-0 lead, which the Hoos would need to hold off Princeton 2-1 today in Klockner Stadium. Lindsey’s goal, which came off a cross from senior Jill Maxwell (Duxbury, Mass./Duxbury) would stand up for the winning goal as the Cavaliers improve to 10-4-2 on the season.
Virginia went up 1-0 halfway through the first stanza as Angela Hucles (Virginia Beach, VA/Norfolk Academy) toe-poked a mishandled Darci Borski Philadelphia, PA/Nazareth Academy) shot into the net. Hucles took advantage of a loose ball on the goal line and simply tucked it into the net, just over the line to give the Cavaliers the early lead. Hucles’ goal give her 45 goals and 12 assists for her career, which ties the Virginia all-time record held by Andrea Rubio (1989-92). Lindsey’s goal just 8:25 into the second half would prove to be all the scoring the Cavaliers would need, as the Tigers’ leading scorer Amee Reyes scored on a breakaway with 25:45 to play. But Cavalier keeper Megan Boehm (Howard, Md./Centennial), playing in her second consecutive start, held on for the victory.
Boehm is back: All-ACC performer Megan Boehm has returned to the starting lineup after suffering through injuries for the first part of the season. In her two starts over the weekend, Boehm tallied a pair of wins as she allowed only one goal. In the Clemson game, Boehm shut down the conference’s second-highest scoring offense, helping the Cavaliers to the win.
Maxwell tames Tigers again: Jill Maxwell recorded the game-winning assist against Princeton for the second consecutive year. Last year Maxwell hit Hucles for the game-winner; on Sunday Max fed Lori Lindsey to help the Cavaliers to the win.
Shades of things to come: Two freshmen are ranked second and third in this year’s scoring on the team as Darci Borski and Lori Lindsey have 20 and 16 points respectively. Laura Gaworecki is in fifth with eight points.
On the Horizon Travelling Down Tobacco Road
Riding the Wake: Virginia leads the all-time series with Wake Forest 4-0, holding a 15-3 advantage in goals. The Cavaliers have defeated the Demon Deacons each year the conference rival has fielded a varsity team. Although the goal differential seems large, each of the last three contests has been a one-goal game. Virginia’s 9-0 win in 1994 is t he second-largest margin of victory in school history and second-most goals scored in a game (UMBC, 11-0, 1988).
Hanging with the Heels: Sunday’s game against North Carolina is somewhat of a reunion for April Heinrichs, who was one of the true stars at North Carolina during her playing career. Her jersey has since been retired by the Tar Heels, where she was a member of three national championship teams and amassed 225 career points, which at the time of her graduation was the highest in collegiate history. Virginia has never defeated the Tar Heels, going 0-20 against their ACC rivals. In fact, the Cavaliers have managed only four goals against the Tar Heels, but two of those came in the 1996 ACC second-round matchup when the Cavaliers led 1-0 at the 16:30 mark for 3:48. That is the only time in the series that the Cavaliers have led the Tar Heels at any point.
