Virginia Women's Soccer Downs Princeton
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Sophomore forward Angela Hucles (Virginia Beach, Va.) had two goals and an assist as the University of Virginia women's soccer team posted a 3-0 victory over Princeton to claim the championship of Coca-Cola Classic at Kloeckner Stadium. The Cavaliers outshot the Tigers 19-1 in the game, while holding a 20-2 advantage in corner kicks. Virginia improves to 6-0-1 with the win, while Princeton falls to 2-1-1.
The Cavaliers opened the scoring at the 42:32 mark on Hucles' first goal. The play began when junior forward Jill Maxwell (Duxbury, Mass.) had the ball in the center of the field and played it to freshman defender Breanne Smith (Rochester, N.Y.), who was all alone on the right wing. Smith dribbled down to outside the penalty box where she sent a cross to Hucles, who volleyed the ball in from six yards away.
Shortly after the intermission, Virginia increased its lead to 2-0. Hucles had the ball above the top of the box and passed to freshman midfielder Tracey Lache (Littleton, Colo.) on the right side. Lache then centered the ball to Maxwell, who slid a shot past Tiger goalkeeper Jordan Rettig from eight yards out. The final goal came at 65:25, when Hucles took a pass from Lache in the right corner and and sent a long ball that hooked into the goal from 30 yards away.
In the first game of the day, Virginia Commonwealth posted a 4-2 win over Kansas. Sophomore forward Annie Sullivan scored two goals for the Rams, with junior midfielder Pascale Lecuire and junior midfielder Rebecca Ruth also adding goals. Freshman midfielder Katie Lentz and freshman forward Christy Clark scored for Kansas.
Hucles was named the Offensive MVP of the tournament, while Virginia junior defender Carryn Weigand (Burke, Va.) won Defensive MVP honors. Maxwell was also selected to the all-tournament team for the Cavaliers.
The Cavaliers will be back in action next Friday, Sept. 26, when they travel to Duke for a 7:00 p.m. contest. The Coca-Cola Classic all-tournament team follows.
