Our goal of the week scuffle takes us from the Big East to the ACC, as we go Battle of the Sexes on two of the best goals from last week.
The first tally comes from Duke’s Kaitlyn Kerr, who flicked on a brilliant goal in an eventual 3-2 loss to No. 1 Virginia. Kerr’s tally in the 23rd minute gave Duke a 2-0 edge on the Cavs, but the Blue Devils couldn’t hold on as Virginia mounted a furious comeback with three goals in the second half to keep its perfect record.
Our men’s representative is Marquette’s C. Nortey, whose movement (which starts at about the 20 second mark in the second video) took him from a smooth chest-down around the halfway line, past two defenders and into a rocket shot in traffic across the keeper’s face. It proved to be the game-winner in Marquette’s 1-0 victory over Xavier that moved the Golden Eagles to 1-0 in the Big East.
Let the Battle of the Sexes commence. Who you got?
