Virginia Women's Soccer Defeats Kansas 4-0
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Sophomore forward Angela Hucles (Virginia Beach, Va.) had a hat trick as the No. 5-ranked University of Virginia women's soccer team posted a 4-0 victory over Kansas on the first day of the Coca-Cola Classic at Klckner Stadium. With the hat trick, Hucles becomes only the fourth player in school history to score three goals in one game. Virginia improves to 5-0-1 with the win, while Kansas falls to 2-5-0.
"It was great that we were able to capitalize on our opportunities early in the game," said Hucles. "Sometimes we dominate a game but don't finish our scoring chances. Coach Heinrichs told us that since we are ranked highly, it is important for us to come out and put games away early."
The Cavaliers opened the scoring only 2:30 into the game on Hucles' first goal. Freshman forward Jill Maxwell (Duxbury, Mass.) played the ball to Hucles in the right side of the penalty box, where she sent a cross that was deflected in by a Kansas defender for the score. Hucles increased the lead to 2-0 with her second goal just over four minutes later. Maxwell had the ball in the center of the field and played it ahead to Hucles in the right center of the box, where she hit the net from eight yards out.
At the 15:10 mark, Hucles completed the hat trick with her third goal of the game. Senior defender Kelly McLaughlin (Scotch Plains, N.J.) pushed the ball forward before passing to senior midfielder Jennifer Rawlings (Fayetteville, Ga.) above the top of the box. Rawlings then found Hucles in the upper left corner of the box, where she scored from 12 yards away. Freshman midfielder Tammy Westinghouse (Seattle, Wash.) concluded the scoring with the first goal of her career at 85:14. Westinghouse took a pass from freshman midfielder Katie Tracy (Richmond, Va.) above the right side of the box and blasted in a shot from 20 yards out.
In the first game of the day, Princeton posted a 4-0 win over Virginia Commonwealth. Sophomore forward Julie Garrison had a hat trick for the Tigers, while Andrea Herschmann scored the other goal. Princeton now stands 2-0-1, while VCU is 2-3-0.
The Coca-Cola Classic will conclude with two games tomorrow, Sept. 20. VCU will take on Kansas in the opener at 5:00 p.m., while Virginia will face Princeton in the finale at 7:00 p.m.
