Virginia Tech advances to College Cup

BLACKSBURG, Va. -- After defeating Duke 3-0 at Thompson Field on Friday night, Virginia Tech advanced to the NCAA College Cup for the first time in school history.

Junior Katie Yensen started the scoring for Tech in the 45th minute. Sophomore Morgan Conklin whipped in a ball from the right side of the box to the head of Yensen, who placed it past Duke’s keeper for the 1-0 lead heading into halftime.

The Hokies continued their quality play in the 65th minute when senior Shannon Mayrose connected on a Taylor Antolino pass to make the score 2-0.

Tech would put away one more insurance goal in the 82nd minute after senior Jazmine Reeves used her speed to blow by the Duke defense and slot home a breakaway for the 3-0 lead.

Senior goalkeeper Dayle Colpitts made five saves in the match to preserve the shutout for Tech.

The Hokies will travel to Cary, N.C. on Dec. 6 to take on Florida State for the third time this season in the semifinal of the 2013 NCAA College Cup.
