Play-by-play recap

The Virginia defense held Boston College off the boards for the opening 24:20 of the contest, and at the other end of the field Blair Weymouth notched a hat trick and Kate Breslin added two goals to help UVa open up a 7-0 lead en route to a 15-7 victory in the ACC quarterfinals today (April 26) in Chapel Hill. The No. 6 Cavaliers were paced offensively by four goals by both Weymouth and Breslin and a one-goal, three-assist performance from Marye Kellerman; Kendall McBrearty made seven saves to lead the Cavaliers defensively.

After Breslin scored the first two for the Cavaliers, Weymouth scored three of the next five goals to help UVa open up a 7-0 lead 19 minutes into the game. The Virginia defense did not allow the Eagles a shot during that period. BC finally got on the board at 5:40 when Jenna McCabe scored an unassisted goal for the Eagles. A McBrearty save led to an outlet pass to Kellerman at the restraining line; the first year took the ball 70 yards to score her first career goal at 4:20. BC got the final two goals of the half, including a bizarre play in which the ball went off a Virginia defender into the cage on an attempted clear. The Cavaliers led 8-3 at the break.

Boston College scored the opening goal of the second half as Maura Mahoney scored on a drive 1:45 into the period to pull within four at 8-4, but a pair of strikes by Breslin and Weymouth two minutes apart pushed the margin back to six at 10-4. Breslin’s fourth goal of the game gave her 119 career goals, which moved her into sole possession of tenth place on the all-time career goals list, passing current UNC head coach Jenny Slingluff Levy. A BC goal a minute later stopped the brief run, but a quickstick goal by Kaitlin Duff from Ashley McCulloch started a five-goal run that saw the Cavaliers take a 15-5 lead, the largest of the game. Kellerman assisted on the last three goals, including the final two that came 22 seconds apart. Caity Whitely won the draw, led Kellerman with a pass, who in turn led Kaitlin Swagart, who scored at 8:30 of the second half for Virginia’s final goal of the game. BC’s Lauren Costello scored a pair of goals 24 seconds apart to account for the final score of 15-7.

First-year phenom Brittany Kalkstein controlled four draws in the game, giving her 46 for the season. Her total sets the record for draw controls as a first-year, breaking the record set by Lauren Aumiller in 2001. Kalkstein also ranks sixth all-time in a single season for draw controls; the record is 57 set by Jamie Haas in 1999. Haas also had 120 career goals; Breslin now stands one behind her with 119.

Virginia advances to play Maryland tomorrow (April 27) in ACC semifinal action. The Terps and the Cavaliers will draw at 5:30 in the second game; host UNC will face Duke after the Tar Heels defeated Virginia Tech 18-7 in the opening game of the tournament.
