The No. 1 Virginia women’s soccer team remained unbeaten on the season, posting a 3-1 victory at Pittsburgh Sunday. The Cavaliers moved to 9-0 on the season, matching their best start to a season since 2004.
Sophomore forward Makenzy Doniak had two goals and junior midfielder Morgan Brian had a goal and an assist to lead the Cavaliers.
“You always have to feel good about getting a result on the road in this league,” said head coach Steve Swanson. “Give Pitt a lot of credit, they played very hard and were very determined in the final third.”
After the Panthers got on the scoreboard first, the Cavaliers answered in the 27th minute to tie the game. Junior midfielder Danielle Colaprico’s cross found Brian in the box, who took a turn and fired in her sixth goal of the season.
The Cavaliers took the lead in the 57th minute on Doniak’s first goal of the afternoon. She struck again five minutes later for her team-leading eighth goal of the season.
Senior Danielle DeLisle made one save for Virginia to post her second victory of the season.
The Cavaliers conclude their three-game road trip Thursday as they visit No. 16 Duke.
