CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Virginia freshman Lori Lindsey (Indianapolis, Ind./Pike) had two goals today and classmates Ashley Meeker (Zanoni, Va./Hampton Roads Academy) and Darci Borski (Philadelphia, PA/Nazareth Academy) each added a goal while fellow freshman Laura Gaworecki (Houston, TX/Cypress Creek) assisted on the first goal to help the Cavaliers turn back the Green Wave today at Klockner Stadium. With the win, the Cavaliers break a two-game losing streak and improve to 8-4-2 on the season.
Virginia went up 1-0 when Gaworeckis corner kick found Borski on the near post and Borski flicked it in the net just 12:19 into the game. The Cavaliers used a pair of unassisted goals just 97 seconds apart starting at the 30:01 mark to take a 3-0 lead. Lindsey hit from outside the goal box in the center of the net to the lower right corner at 30:01, and 97 seconds later Meekers kick from the right side of the goal box found the same lower corner to give the Cavaliers a three-goal advantage.
Virginia went up 4-0 just before the half when senior Jill Maxwell (Duxbury, Mass./ Duxbury) was taken down in the box and Lindsey converted the penalty kick to the top shelf.
Maxwell was also involved with both goals in the second half. Just 2:34 into the second period she dribbled through a triumvirate of defenders on the left flank and sent a cross into Angela Hucles (Virginia Beach, VA/Norfolk Academy) , who hit from the top left corner of the box to put the Cavaliers up 5-0. Nine minutes later Hucles returned the favor, taking a through ball down the right flank and slotting it into the center past the Tulane keeper to Maxwells feet, who scored Virginias final goal of the day.
Tulane avoided the shutout as the Green Wave got on the board with 3:52 to play when Jessica Schwartz took the ball down the left flank and got past her defender and sent a cross into Jaclyn Scalzo, who slammed the ball in the net.
Virginia returns to action this weekend as they face a pair of Tigers. The Clemson version comes to town in an ACC matchup on Friday, October 16 at 7:00 pm and the Princeton variety comes to Charlottesville for a Sunday tilt with the Cavaliers at 1:00 pm.
