No. 12 VT Rolls Past Georgetown

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

The No. 12 Virginia Tech women's soccer team defeated Georgetown on Sunday with a 2-1 victory. With this win, the Hokies have improved their record 8-0-1 for the season.

Both goals were scored near the end of each half, one by Candace Cephers and the second by Laila Gray. Goalie Kaylyn Smith recorded five saves in the win. The Hokies were without Murielle Tiernan for the second consecutive game, who is out with an injury. However with their leading scorer out, the Hokies have seemed to have no problem as they also defeated Davidson at home on Thursday night. Jordan Coburn, a key defensive player for the Hokies returned to play in the game against Georgetown after missing the last two matches due to an injury.

"I was very pleased with the result today," coach Chugger Adair said. "It was a hard-fought match that could have gone either way. I think we had some quality chances to score, especially in the first half, but they did, too. The late goal for us was really exciting. The girls really grinded and gritted out a good, quality win today."

The victory closes out the Hokies' non-conference schedule. They return home on Saturday to host No. 3 North Carolina at 7 p.m.
