Sept. 30, 1998
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — Virginia freshman Darci Borski (Philadelphia, PA/Nazareth Academy) stuck in an Angela Hucles (Virginia Beach, VA/Norfolk Academy) cross fifteen minutes into the second half, but it was the only time in 30 shots that the tenth-ranked Cavaliers were able to stick the ball in the cage and Virginia settled for the 1-1 tie against in-state rival Virginia Commonwealth tonight in Richmond.
After a scoreless first half that saw the Cavaliers take eight shots and have seven corner kicks while allowing the Rams only two shots on goal, Borski finally put the ball past the VCU keeper on a breakaway with Hucles with 29:50 to go in regulation.
But the Rams answered six minutes later as Holly O’Hora handled a missed clear on the turf and slotted the ball to Rebecca Ruth, who chipped the ball in over Cavalier keeper Julie Harris (Ridgefield, Conn./Ridgefield) in what would prove to be the Rams’ final shot of the evening.
The Cavaliers outshot the Rams 30-5 and had 20 corner kicks while denying the Rams any corner kicks. Ram keeper Lindy Brown made 13 saves on the evening.
The Cavaliers, now 6-2-2 on the season, travel to Knoxville to participate in the Lady Vol Soccer Classic. The Cavaliers will play host Tennessee on Friday at 8:00 pm and will play #17 Vanderbilt in the tournament finale on Sunday. Virginia will not return home until Monday, October 12 as the Cavaliers face the Green Wave of Tulane at 4:00 pm.
