Top-five Stanford, Maryland end in tie
Roundup: No. 3 UNC scores in OT to top No. 1 Notre Dame
COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- No. 2 Stanford was unable to convert several early chances and played No. 5 Maryland to a 0-0 draw in a double-overtime nonconference women's soccer match Friday night.
Stanford (2-0-1) forced three strong saves from Maryland goalkeeper Yewande Balogun in the first 10 minutes and held the Terrapins without a shot for the first 19 minutes. But Maryland (2-0-1) rallied with some strong chances of its own in the 110-minute stalemate before a crowd of 1,527 fans in what was billed as the biggest nonconference match in Ludwig Field history.
No. 3 North Carolina 2, No. 1 Notre Dame 0 (OT) -- Full Recap
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- Senior forward Courtney Jones' 20-yard shot from the top of the box in the 96th minute found the lower left corner of the goal, lifting third-ranked North Carolina to a 2-1 overtime victory against top-ranked and defending NCAA champion Notre Dame Friday night before 5,236 fans, the fourth largest crowd to watch the Tar Heels play at Fetzer Field. It was Carolina's first win against the Fighting Irish at Fetzer Field since 1998 as UNC broke a three-game losing streak to Notre Dame on its home pitch.
Jones' goal was set up with a pair of brilliant assists by Kealia Ohai and Amber Brooks. And Carolina would probably not have even found itself in overtime in the first place were it not for the play of junior goalkeeper Hannah Daly who made a career-high seven saves, including one on a shot by Adrianna Leon in the 86th minute that seem destined to find the back of the net and lift the Irish to victory.
No. 4 Portland 1, Washington State 0
PORTLAND, Ore. -- Amanda Frisbee’s second half goal was the difference as No. 4 Portland defeated visiting Washington State 1-0 on Friday night. Early in the 65th minute, Micaela Capelle created a turnover for the Pilots near midfield and sent a pass ahead to Frisbee who beat Washington State goalkeeper Gurveen Clair from 12 yards out inside the near left post.
In the fourth minute of the match, Portland missed a chance to take the lead when Danielle Foxhoven’s shot from the top of the box hit the crossbar. For the remainder of the half, Washington State was the more aggressive team as the Cougars outshot the Pilots 3-0, including two on net, and generated both of the half’s corner kicks. Washington State’s best chance to net the equalizer was in the 69th minute, when a shot from the top of the box by freshman Jocelyn Jeffers was just wide of the near right post. The Cougars were outshot in the match 13-6, but held a 5-1 advantage in corner kicks.
No. 6 Virginia 9, Liberty 1
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- No. 6 Virginia had its biggest offensive explosion in six years as it downed Liberty 9-1 Friday night in front of 1,183 fans at Klöckner Stadium.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Ninth-ranked Florida State (2-1-0) used an early first-half goal by Kassey Kallman and held off a pesky New Mexico (1-1-1) squad to win its eighth consecutive home opener 1-0 Friday night at the Seminole Soccer Complex.

The game went back-and-forth throughout the night. Rutgers controlled much of the first half. The Scarlet Knights struck early attacking right off the kick-off and earned the first of four corner kicks in the first half.
