GAME 20: #13 Virginia 2, Florida State 0
Virginia’s all-time leading scorer Angela Hucles (Norfolk, Va./Norfolk Academy) scored off a cross from frosh Laura Gaworecki (Houston, Tex/Cypress Creek) halfway through the first period to help the second-seeded Cavaliers defeat the seventh-seeded Florida State Seminoles 2-0 in Orlando, Florida. It was the second triumph over the Seminoles this year in Florida for the Cavaliers, who also defeated Florida State 4-3 in overtime in Tallahassee during the regular season.

Hucles, who now has 109 career points on 48 goals and 13 assists, put the Hoos up 1-0 in the first period. Freshman Darci Borski (Philadelphia, Pa./Nazareth Academy), who scored the game-winner in the first Virginia-Florida State game, added an insurance goal 17 minutes into the second period as she stuck back a rebound to put Virginia up 2-0.

The Cavalier defense limited the Seminoles to three shots on the game, and starting keeper Megan Boehm (Howard, Md./Centennial) stopped all three shots. The Cavaliers outshot the Seminoles 11-3 and had a 5-1 advantage in corner kicks.

GAME 21: #14 Clemson 2, #13 Virginia 1
Clemson’s Beth Keller scored once in each half to help the third-seeded Clemson Tigers defeat the second-seeded Virginia Cavaliers 2-1 in the ACC Women’s Soccer semifinals in Orlando, Fla. Clemson got on the board first as Keller launched a 15-yard shot into the far corner in the 27th minute of play. The Tigers held the lead at halftime 1-0. Keller scored again in the second half off an assist from Sara Burkett in the 78th minute. Her shot went over the hands of Virginia keeper Megan Boehm to give the Tigers the 2-0 lead. Virginia avoided the shutout with a goal just 16 seconds before the end of regulation as sophomore Katie Tracy (Richmond, VA/James River) put the Cavaliers on the board in the as she hit from 15 yards out. She was assisted on the play by a pair of freshmen, Darci Borski and Laura Gaworecki.

Individual Notes:

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 23 and 18 points respectively. Laura Gaworecki is in fifth with 11 points. These three have accounted for five game-winning goals and two game-winning assists. Ashley Meeker in the backfield has been a fast and steady presence for the Hoos, logging 1697 minutes, which is fifth on the team and is leading the freshmen performers. Lindsay and Borski were also the only Cavaliers named to the All-Tournament team this past weekend. Lori Lindsay was also named to the second-team All-ACC squad.

Ang garners the ACColades: Angela Hucles was named a first-team All-Conference selection for the third consecutive year. Hucles, the all-time leading scorer at Virginia, has now been named to the first-team All-Conference squad in each of her three years.

Tammy heads in the right direction: Tammy Westinghouse was named to the All-ACC second team for the first time in her career this season.

On the Horizon

NCAA Tournament
Scouting Wake Forest and Georgia: The Cavaliers have a perfect 5-0 record against Wake Forest, but they have never met in the post season, either in the ACC Tournament or in the NCAA Tournament. Although Virginia has outscored the Deacs 16-3 all-time, the Demon Deacons took the Cavaliers into overtime this year where junior All-American Angela Hucles scored the game-winner just five minutes into the extra period. The Cavaliers have never faced Georgia before.

In the NCAA Tournament: The Cavaliers have gone 2-10 in the NCAA Tournament over the past 11 years. Virginia has been invited to the tournament every year since 1987 with the exception of 1993. The second round game in Charlottesville will mark the fourth time in six years that the Cavaliers are hosting a game in the tournament. Virginia under April Heinrichs has a record of 1-2 in the NCAA Tournament following last year’s 3-1 defeat of James Madison in the first round and a 1-0 loss to William and Mary in the second round in Charlottesville.
