There was no shortage of enticing women's soccer matchups in Week 11. UCLA pulled off a comeback win against crosstown rival USC, North Carolina beat No. 1-seeded Duke for the ACC crown and Texas A&M knocked off every team in its path en route to its 13th straight win and the SEC title.

WATCH: Best men's soccer goals from Week 10

Here are the best goals from Week 11 of the women's soccer season:

Catarina Macario – Stanford

Stanford finished the regular season on a 16-game winning streak thanks to Catarina Macario's game-winner in the Cardinal's 1-0 victory over California.

Alessia Russo – North Carolina

Alessia Russo's game-winner in the 56th minute against NC State advanced the Tar Heels to the ACC championship. It was her ninth goal of the season.

Ella Stevens – Duke

Sometimes it's just easier to use your head. Duke's team chemistry and passing prowess was on full display in the setup for Ella Stevens' game-winner against Virginia.

Nicole Molen – USC

Senior captain Nicole Molen nearly produced enough offense for USC to take down UCLA, but the Bruins scored two goals late in the game — one in the 65th minute and one in overtime — to win. Her header in the 11th minute was the first goal of the game.

Ashley Sanchez – UCLA

Even though she's in her first year on campus, Ashley Sanchez is no stranger to scoring goals at the collegiate level. Her sixth goal of the season may have been her biggest so far — a golden goal against crosstown rival USC in overtime.

Sarah Roberts – Ohio State

Top-seeded Ohio State found itself deadlocked with No. 8 seed Iowa in the Big Ten tournament when Sarah Roberts launched a 30-yard blast into the back of the net in the 103rd minute to give the Buckeyes a 2-1 win over the Hawkeyes.

Heather Kaleiohi – West Virginia

Heather Kaleiohi scored the game-winner for the Mountaineers against Texas Tech in the Big 12 tournament quarterfinals as her shot from 15 yards out in the 68th minute found the upper 90 of the goal.

Stefanie Sanders – UCF
