Thursday night's 2-1 win at Boston College was a milestone victory for Virginia women's soccer, on a number of levels.
The Cavaliers improved to 8-0 with the win, in their first game away from Klöckner Stadium this season. It was also the program's first-ever win at Boston College, and career win No. 300 for UVa coach Steve Swanson.
And Virginia was victorious in its first match as the top-ranked team of the country since October of 1990. UVa moved into the No. 1 spot in all four major women's soccer polls earlier this week.
Makenzy Doniak and Molly Menchel each scored second-half goals for the Cavaliers, who had never scored in four previous visits to Newton Campus Field. Stephanie McCaffrey scored the Eagles' goal, the first scored against UVa since August 30.
With the win, the Cavaliers improved to 2-0 in the ACC, while Boston College fell to 4-4 overall and 1-2 in the conference.
