Virginia Women's Soccer Defeats Maryland 2-1

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Freshman midfielder Tammy Westinghouse (Seattle, Wash.) scored the game-winning goal with less than 18 minutes remaining to give No. 9-ranked University of Virginia women's soccer team a 2-1 victory over No. 17 Maryland. The Cavaliers dominated play in the offensive end, taking 15 shots to the Terrapins five. Virginia improves to 13-2-2 overall and 4-2-0 in the Atlantic Coast Conference, while Maryland falls to 9-6-2 overall and 3-3-0 in the ACC.

Westinghouse's goal came at the 72:15 mark, breaking a 1-1 tie. Senior forward Tania Jovanovic (Colesvile, Md.) played a free kick to senior midfielder Jennifer Rawlings (Fayetteville, Ga.) near midfield. Rawlings then sent the ball ahead to Westinghouse, who dribbled into the box and scored from 14 yards out.

The Cavaliers had opened the scoring at the 10:29 mark on a goal by sophomore forward Angela Hucles (Virginia Beach, Va.), her 15th goal of the season. Freshman midfielder Tracey Lache (Littleton, Colo.) played the ball from the right side to Hucles at the top of the penalty box. Hucles then dribbled around Maryland goalkeeper Rikki-Ann Serrins before scoring from 12 yards out in the left center. The Terrapins tied up the game at 67:36 on a goal by junior midfielder Abby Bausman. Sophomore midfielder Jackie Mynarski played the ball to Bausman in the left side of the box, where she scored from 16 yards away.

The Cavaliers will return to action on Sunday, Nov. 2, when they play host to No. 1 North Carolina at 1:00 p.m.
