Braver than the average man:

If the kick were just a few feet shorter, the latest chapter in the saga of Todd Braverman's Virginia career could have been entitled "Gone with the Wind." Thankfully for the third-year kicker and for the Cavalier fans, the plot took a bit of a twist. When Braverman's 50-yard, wind-aided field goal cleared the crossbar with 27 seconds left to beat North Carolina, all of the misfortune of the third year's roller-coaster career virtually was erased. "It's very redeeming," Braverman said.

Braverman, who nailed a 50-yard field goal in the final minute of the game to lift Virginia to the victory, received a nod as Specialist of the Week for his late-game heroics.

Women's soccer flies through No.3-ranked Pilots

With a final score of 2-0, the No. 18 Virginia women's soccer team (1-1) defeated No. 3 Portland (1-1) Sunday, with goals by third-year midfielder Katie Tracy and fourth-year forward Jill Maxwell. In the seventh minute, Tracy regained control of a misplayed clear and knocked the ball past the Pilot goalkeeper into the upper left hand corner. In the 53rd minute, Maxwell seized the opportunity of second-year forward Darci Borski's deflected shot and scored to give Virginia a 2-0 lead. The Pilots outshot the Cavaliers 11-4 in the first half and 8-6 in the second but Virginia obtained four corner kicks in the first half and third-year goalie Julie Maxwell had three saves overall to protect the Cavaliers' 2-0 shutout. Virginia travels to play James Madison Thursday at 7 p.m.
