CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Virginia freshman Lori Lindsey’s (Indianapolis, Ind./Pike) shot careened off the goalpost and into the net in the second half, giving the Cavaliers a 2-0 lead, which the Hoos would need to hold off Princeton 2-1 today in Klockner Stadium. Lindsey’s goal, which came off a cross from senior Jill Maxwell (Duxbury, Mass./Duxbury) would stand up for the winning goal as the Cavaliers improve to 10-4-2 on the season.
Virginia went up 1-0 halfway through the first stanza as Angela Hucles (Virginia Beach, VA/Norfolk Academy) toe-poked a mishandled Darci Borski (Philadelphia, PA/Nazareth Academy) shot into the net. Hucles took advantage of a loose ball on the goal line and simply tucked it into the net, just over the line to give the Cavaliers the early lead. Hucles’ goal give her 45 goals and 12 assists for her career, which ties the Virginia all-time record held by Andrea Rubio (1989-92). Lindsey’s goal just 8:25 into the second half would prove to be all the scoring the Cavaliers would need, as the Tigers’ leading scorer Amee Reyes scored on a breakaway with 25:45 to play. But Cavalier keeper Megan Boehm (Howard, Md./Centennial), playing in her second consecutive start, held on for the victory.
With the win, the Cavaliers improve to 10-4-2 overall and are 4-1 in conference play. They complete their conference schedule with a pair of games on the road this weekend, at Wake Forest on Friday, October 23 and at top-ranked North Carolina on Sunday, Oct. 25. Princeton falls to 9-3 overall and breaks a six-game winning streak for the Tigers.
