Women's Soccer remains perfect with 3-1 win

No. 1 Cavaliers handle Pittsburgh, improve to 9-0 for first time since 2004

The No. 1 Virginia women’s soccer kept its hot start to the season alive in Pittsburgh Sunday afternoon, downing the Panthers 3-1 to move to 9-0 for the first time since 2004.

For the second time in as many games, the Cavaliers (9-0, 3-0 ACC) found themselves in a 1-0 hole and were forced to rally. Pittsburgh (4-5-1, 0-4 ACC) grabbed the lead in the 11th minute when senior forward Dana DelleFemine took advantage of a through ball and beat Cavalier senior goalkeeper Danielle DeLisle in the lower left corner.

Virginia was able to respond in the 27th minute when star junior midfielder Morgan Brian finished a cross from junior midfielder Danielle Colaprico for her sixth goal of the season. From there, it was all Virginia as the Panthers did not record another shot in the first half.

Sophomore forward Makenzy Doniak got her seventh and eighth goals of the season in the second half, which put Pittsburgh away for good. Aside from the lone goal early, Doniak and the rest of the Cavaliers dominated the match, outshooting the Panthers 37-3 and not allowing a single corner kick.

Virginia will finish a three-game road trip Thursday when it travels to Durham, N.C. to take on No. 18 Duke.
