No. 1 Virginia stayed perfect (13-0-0) with a 3-2, double overtime win over No. 9 Notre Dame in the ACC, while No. 2 UCLA handed No. 5 Stanford a second straight home defeat, winning 2-1.
Gloria Douglas put Virginia ahead early, but Elizabeth Tucker’s goal tied things up for Notre Dame in the 25th minute. A Notre Dame own goal just after halftime saw the Irish go down once again, but Tucker’s second goal in 73rd minute evened the match at 2-2.
In star-studded game, though, it was MAC Hermann Trophy hopeful Morgan Brian who delivered the game-winner for Virginia, heading in Danielle Colaprico’s corner kick one minute into the second overtime for her ninth goal of the season.
In Palo Alto, Calif., UCLA freshman Lauren Kaskie’s first goal couldn’t have come at a better time. It snapped the Bruins’ seven-game losing streak to the Cardinal and asserted UCLA once more as a legitimate national championship contender.
Jenna Richmond opened the scoring for UCLA in the 62nd minute, but Stanford’s Lo’eau LaBonta scored with 93 seconds left in regulation to force overtime. Kaskie’s goal give UCLA their first win at Stanford in five years and puts the Bruins in the driver’s seat in the Pac-12.
