Four of the 16 teams still remaining in the 2010 Division I Women's Soccer Championship – North Carolina, Virginia, Notre Dame and Boston College – feature a pair of double-digit goalscorers leading the way for their potent offenses. Two of those "Dynamic Duos" will be on display in the same game this weekend, when ND resumes its rivalry with UNC on Saturday at Fetzer Field (Nov. 20; 5 ET).
There now are 21 teams with this rare Dynamic Duo distinction, as ND, BC and Maryland joined this exclusive list following Sunday's second-round NCAA games. The 21 teams include 14 that qualified for the 2010 NCAA tournament.
• North Carolina ... Kealia Ohai (14) and Courtney Jones (12)
• Virginia ... Meghan Lenczyk (12) and Sinead Farrelly (11)
• Notre Dame ... Melissa Henderson (16) and Rose Augustin (10)
• Boston College ... Victoria DiMartino (13) and Kristen Mewis (10)
Four other teams in the round-of-16 are close to joining the Dynamic Duos list: Stanford (Christen Press 23, Lindsay Taylor 9, Teresa Noyola 9) ... Georgetown (Camille Trujillo 13, Ingrid Wells 9) ... UC Irvine (Tanya Taylor 11, CoCo Goodson 9) .... and Duke (Laura Weinberg 10, Mollie Pathman 8).
In addition to UNC, ND, UVa and BC, there are 10 other NCAA participants with a pair of double-digit goalscorers: Siena (3), Florida, Boston Univ., Hofsta, South Florida, St. Francis (PA), Texas A&M, UNC Greensboro, Central Florida and Maryland. Seven teams that did not qualify for the 2010 NCAAs – most notably bubble teams Denver and Nebraska – finished their seasons with two double-digit goalscorers.
A full listing of the 21 teams follows at the bottom of this blog post.
