October 7, 1998
GAME 11: #10 Virginia 4, Tennessee 3–
Virginia freshmen Darci Borski (Philadelphia, PA/Nazareth Academy) and Laura Gaworecki (Houston, TX/Cypress Creek) teamed up with just under three minutes to go in the game to get what would prove to be the game-winning goal for the Cavaliers as they defeated host Tennessee 4-3 in the Lady Vol Soccer Classic late tonight in Knoxville.
The Cavaliers battled back from a 3-2 deficit to score the last two goals of the game–both assisted by Gaworecki–for the win. Virginia career goals-leader Angela Hucles (Virginia Beach, VA/Norfolk Academy) scored her first goal of the night just five minutes into the game to send the Cavaliers to the early lead. The Lady Vols battled back with a goal in the 18th minute to tie the match at 1-1. Virginia took the lead a second time as sophomore Katie Tracy (Richmond, VA/James River) took a through ball from Borski to the cage 32 minutes into the match to give the Cavaliers the 2-1 lead, but the Lady Vols tied it up just before halftime with a goal by freshman Allison Campbell.
Tennessee took the lead 13 minutes into the second stanza as the Volunteers punched back a rebound into the cage. The Cavaliers tied it up themselves as Hucles scored her second goal of the evening off a corner kick service from Gaworecki in the 74th minute of play. Borski and Gaworecki connected in the 88th minute as Borski banged in the Gaworecki cross. The Cavaliers outshot the Volunteers 22-11, but Tennessee keeper Ellen Dean made eight saves as she went down to her first defeat of the year.
GAME 12: #17 Vanderbilt 4, #10 Virginia 0–
The 17th-ranked Vanderbilt Commodores scored twice in each half to life them to the 4-0 shutout of the Cavaliers in the second day of the Lady Vol Soccer Classic. The loss breaks a six-game unbeaten streak for the Cavaliers and it is the first time this season that the Cavaliers have been shutout.
Vanderbilt’s Kim Szurovy scored twice and assisted on the other two goals to pace the Commodore attack. She scored in the 14th minute on what would prove to be the game-winner. She assisted Laura Koerner in the 37th minute to send the Commodores to the 2-0 halftime lead. Virginia substituted goalies at that point, with Megan Boehm (Columbia, Md./Howard) coming in to replace Julie Harris (Ridgefield, Conn./Ridgefield). In the 57th minute of play, Cavalier keeper Megan Boehm was issued a red card for illegal usage of her hands. Frosh Ashley Mowrey (Alexandria, Va./West Potomac) came in for Harris . But Szurovy scored again in the 67th minute, with an assist again coming from Austa Helgadottir to put Vanderbilt up 3-0. Szurovy fed Jessie Wolfe with 30 seconds to go in the game for the final score of 4-0.
Borski is torching the nets: Freshman Darci Borski is leading the Cavaliers in assists with 5 and has scored in eight of the Cavaliers’ 12 games so far this season.
Lucky 13: Angela Hucles’ two goals Tennessee marks the 13th time that she has hit multiple goals in a single game. Hucles also has 13 game-winning goals, which is third all-time at Virginia (Andrea Rubio, 17 and Kim Smith, 16). Hucles is also a candidate for the Missouri Athletic Club Player of the Year Award. Earlier she was named a finalist for the Hermann Trophy, also awarded to the Player of the Year.
Maxwell maxes opportunity: Jill Maxwell returned to the starting lineup in Tennessee at the Lady Vol Soccer Classic. It was the first time she had been in the starting lineup after starting all 18 games that she played in 1997 before she retore her ACL.
On the Horizon
Tangling with the Terrapins: Virginia has never lost to the Terrapins, leading the series 17-0-2. Maryland’s ties have come in 1994, when April Heinrichs was the coach of the Terrapins, and in 1996, when Missy Price was the goalie for the Terps. In 1995, the Cavaliers played their first night game at Klockner Stadiusm against a Terrapin team ranked #6 in the nation and sporting an 8-0 record. The Cavaliers defeated the Terrapins 4-0 in one of Virginia’s finest games.
Riding the Green Wave: Monday’s tilt with Tulane will be the first time that the Cavaliers have met the
