The Cavalier women's soccer team defeated William & Mary Sunday afternoon, 1-0. The Cavaliers advance to the third round of the NCAA tournament for the third consecutive season.
"It is hard that there had to be a winner and a loser in this game," said Virginia head coach Steve Swanson. "I have tremendous respect for the William & Mary program and John Daly is a legend in our sport. Their players fought hard and we have been on the other side of these outcomes before. On the other side, I am so proud of our team. We had a shaky start but gained momentum as the game went along. How fitting was it that it was our two center backs were involved in the game-winning goal"
Nikki Krzysik scored the the winning goal with just 14 seconds left in regulation. The Cavaliers outshot the Tribe 21-9. UVa goalkeeper had five saves and posted her 13th shutout of the season, tying Christina de Vries school record for shutouts in a season set in 2004.
The Cavaliers will play the winner of Sunday's UCLA/Oklahoma State game.
