There’s a new No. 1 in town.
The Tar Heels drop just one spot, however, as it took a great deal to knock them off. Morgan Andrews tallied for the Irish in the 22nd minute, and Notre Dame survived a second half onslaught. That included a Crystal Dunn shot that hit the cross bar, bounced over the line and then out of the goal, but the call was missed.
In its only game of the week, the No. 1 Cavaliers easily dispatched Syracuse 3-0 on Thursday. Makenzy Doniak and Brittany Ratcliffe each grabbed a goal and an assist for UVA.
Also keeping hold of its No. 5 spot is Florida State, which enjoyed a solid run of games. On Thursday the Seminoles drew 0-0 with Wake Forest, and wrapped up the weekend with a big 2-1 win against Duke.
