MT. PLEASANT, S.C. - Sophomore Erin Moore's (Poolesville, Md.) 59th minute tally lifted the Virginia Tech women's soccer team to a 1-0 triumph over Wofford, Sunday at the Quality Inn & Suites Classic at Patriot's Point Field.

Moore, who scored a pair of goals last season, took the ball down the left side of the field and beat the keeper with a shot that hit the back of the net on the right side. It was Moore's first points of the season."I was happy to see Erin play like this today," Tech head coach Kelly Cagle said. "She totally created the goal on her own."

This marked the second straight contest that Tech has held its opponent without a goal. The Hokies shut out the College of Charleston on Friday evening. Redshirt-freshman Ashley Owens (Greensboro, N.C.) played all 90 minutes to record her first collegiate shut out and first victory in net.

Tech outshot the Terriers 14-5 and held an 11-1 advantage in corner kicks. Redshirt-freshman Elizabeth Guise (Midlothian, Va.) led the charge with three shots, while Ashley Stinson (Acworth, Ga.), Molly McCall (Falls Church, Va.) and Ashley Kinser (Johnson City, Tenn.) were each credited with two.

"I was unhappy with the approach our team took today," Cagle said. "If you don't respect your opponents, and you don't respect the game, you're going to have a hard time being one of the best teams in the country. Since being one of the best teams in the country is this program's goal, we hope to be more prepared for each of our games, regardless of the opponent."

"All of that being said, teams need to find a way to win. And we found a way to win today."

The Hokies (3-2-1 overall) will look to continue their winning ways with a pair of home matches next weekend. Tech will host Colorado College Friday at 7:30 p.m., before facing UNC Greensboro at 4 p.m., Sunday.
