No. 1 Virginia 11, No. 10 North Carolina 10

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. | Goalie Adam Ghitelman made two saves in the final 30 seconds Saturday as the Cavaliers (12-0, 2-0 ACC) turned back the Tar Heels (8-4, 0-3) in the Big City Classic.

Shamel Bratton and Danny Glading both scored three times for Virginia as the Cavaliers collected their third straight one-goal victory and its fourth on the season. Ghitelman finished with 11 saves.

Billy Bitter scored five goals for North Carolina, which lost its 21st straight game against ACC opponents — a stretch dating to an April 10, 2004, defeat of Virginia.

The Tar Heels also lost senior goalie Grant Zimmerman, who made seven saves before he left with a knee injury in the second quarter.

No. 20 Georgetown 11, No. 19 Fairfield 8

Dan Vinson collected 17 of 21 faceoff victories, and Dan D’Agnes and Jake Samperton both scored twice, lifting the Hoyas (5-5, 1-2 ECAC) past the Stags (6-3, 3-1) at the Multi-Sport Field.
