CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va.--The Cavaliers got the treat, not the trick, as Jess
Coleman's (Oceanport, N.J./Shore Regional) corner shot rocketed into the
cage in overtime, giving the #12 Cavaliers a 3-2 decision over #10 Duke. It
was Coleman's second goal of the game, both coming on corner shots and both
assisted by Carrie Goodloe (St. Louis, Mo./John Burroughs) and Laura
Lindsay (Deerfield, Mass./Deerfield Academy).
Coleman put the Cavaliers ahead with 14:12 remaining in the first
half as she connected on a corner. Virginia went ahead 2-0 as Meredith
Elwell (Moorestown, N.J./Moorestown) poked the ball to Lorraine Vizzuso
(Fairfield, N.J./West Essex) just 90 seconds before halftime. The Cavaliers
took a 2-0 lead into halftime after holding the Blue Devils to just one
shot in the half.
In the second half the Blue Devils tied the game with a two-goal
barrage in a five minute span. Corey Ceccolini connected on a corner with
assists from Angie North and Courtney Sommer at the 24:58 mark, and five
minutes later Chrissy Ashley chipped in a loose ball in front ot the cage
to tie the game.
With just over a minute to play, Duke had a corner and Ceccolini's
shot hit the post and went out of play. The teams ended regulation with a
In the overtime period, the Cavaliers had a breakaway with a 2v1
but got the ball trapped in their feet to nullify that chance. They were
awarded a corner two minutes later but were not able to get off a clean
shot. Duke also was awarded a corner in the overtime period but they were
not able to control the pass and the Cavaliers were able to clear the ball.
On Virginia's second corner of the period Coleman connected for the
game-winner, her fifth of the season.
Virginia's Becky Worthington (Fairview Village, Pa./Methacton)
played the entire time in goal and recorded three saves on the day.
Goodloe's two assists on the day give her 18 for the season, the
second-highest total for a sophomore in school history, behind Lindsay's 19
in 1997. She also now has 23 in her career, which is ninth all-time at
Virginia. Lindsay now has 43 career assists, which ranks second at Virginia
and eighth in the ACC in history.
The Cavaliers improve to 12-6 on the season and are the #4 seed in
the 1999 ACC Championships this weekend. They will take on #5 Duke on
