No. 1 Virginia defeated Boston College 2-1 on the road Thursday in ACC play to improve to 8-0-0 on the season. Sophomore Makenzy Doniak and senior Molly Menchel scored four minutes apart for the Cavaliers.

Stephanie McCaffrey gave Boston College the lead in the 47th minute, but Doniak hit the equalizer 11 minutes later before Menchel’s winner.

The win was the first for Virginia at Boston College in the Cavaliers’ fifth all-time try. It was also coach Steve Swanson’s 300th career victory.

“I got into coaching because I love soccer and I thought I could help people along the way,” Swanson told “The thing I have learned over the years is that I am the one who has really been helped. I have been fortunate to have a lot of players, assistant coaches and staff that have been very good to me. This milestone is just a reflection of all those people, past and present. This game is all about the players, so have have to give them the credit.”
