Here are the best goals from Week 10 of women's action.

Jordan DiBiasi – Stanford

Stanford won a major showdown against No. 6 UCLA on Thursday, when the Cardinal defeated the Bruins 1-0. Jordan DiBiasi scored the game's only goal in the 28th minute.

Kat McDonald – Duke

The Blue Devils clinched the ACC regular season championship after going undefeated during conference play. Duke's final ACC game was a 1-0 win against Virginia that wasn't decided until the 87th minute, when Kat McDonald made a run into the box and beat the Cavaliers' keeper.

Bridgette Andrzejewski – North Carolina

North Carolina had a flair for the dramatic on Thursday, when the Tar Heels tied Notre Dame in the 90th minute of their ACC regular season finale. The game ended in a 1-1 draw after two overtime periods, but Bridgette Andrzejewski was the hero for UNC thanks to her late goal.

Ashleigh Plumptre – USC

USC sophomore Ashleigh Plumptre scored her second consecutive game-winner as she placed a long-distance strike into the upper 90 of the goal against California.

Jessie Fleming – UCLA

UCLA sophomore midfielder Jessie Fleming scored the game-winner in the Bruins' 3-0 win over Washington last Sunday. She blasted a shot from roughly 25 yards out that sailed over the keeper's head.

Dina Orschmann – UCF

Even though UCF's final regular season game was a 1-1 tie against South Florida, the result was enough for the Knights to win the AAC title. Dina Orschmann collected a cross and beat the opposing keeper to the left for her sixth goal of the year.
