She scored from where? The best goals from Week 9

  Schuyler DeBree scored the first goal of her career in impressive fashion.

UCLA has established itself as one of the top teams in the country and the Bruins made a push to finish the regular season undefeated. However, Washington State had other plans, handing UCLA a 1-0 loss in Pullman, Wash., for the Bruins' first defeat of the season. That loss should cause some movement in the next United Soccer Coaches poll, but for now, the top six teams are from either California, North Carolina or South Carolina.

Here are the best goals from Week 9 of women's soccer action.

Schuyler DeBree – Duke

Schuyler DeBree's first-career goal came in impressive fashion as she blasted a free kick from near midfield over Boston College's goalie's head and into the net for the game-winner.

Catarina Macario – Stanford

The Cardinal didn't let the ball touch the ground from essentially midfield to the back of the net as Catarina Macario scored this ridiculous volley goal with assists from Mariah Lee and Tegan McGrady.

Amandine Pierre-Louis – West Virginia

The Mountaineers struck first in a 1-1 draw with Texas Tech as Amandine Pierre-Louis sent a bending blast into the goal from almost 30 yards out.

Savannah McCaskill, Elexa Bahr – South Carolina

The Gamecocks scored two goals in the first eight minutes of their 3-0 win against Vanderbilt. McCaskill's strike was a rocket from outside the box into the upper left-hand corner of the goal.

Julia Ashley, Abby Elinsky, Bridgette Andrzejewski, Alea Hyatt – North Carolina

The Tar Heels finished their ACC regular season schedule undefeated with an 8-0 record after defeating Virgina Tech 4-0. North Carolina's first two goals were a pair of beautiful headers, the third was on an impressive run through the Hokies' defense and the fourth was a redirect in the box.

Ashleigh Plumptre – USC

Ashleigh Plumptre's first-career goal couldn't have come at a better time as the sophomore midfielder's bouncing volley proved to be the game-winner in USC's 2-1 victory over Washington State.

Haley Berg – Texas

Texas won on the road against Kansas State as Haley Berg scored in the 93rd minute for the first golden goal of her career as she cut to her left, then sent a shot off the crossbar and into the goal.

Bridget Callahan – UCF

The Knights stayed undefeated in AAC play with a 2-0 win over UConn. Bridget Callahan provided an insurance goal for UCF in the 69th minute by finishing a cross on a corner kick.
