1999 Virginia Men's Soccer Season Review
Dec. 17, 1999
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — When the 1999 University of Virginia men’s soccer team began itsregular season, the Cavaliers knew they were in for a challenge. Loftyexpectations from previous teams starred the ’99 squad in the face, such as18 consecutive NCAA appearances, 18 consecutive winning seasons and 17consecutive winning season in the ACC just to name a few. All of thesescenarios surrounded the team before the season even began. There was noquestion that the ’99 squad was talented. The question that surrounded UVawas, just how good the team would actually be, and how far could the ‘Hoosclimb?
On paper, Virginia fielded a youthful team with only one senior onthe roster, Drew O’Donnell. With the loss of several key players tograduation and to the MLS, UVa had to turn to several returningletterwinners and a solid recruiting class to carry them to the top of thesoccer world again this season. With one of the nations toughest schedulesadded to the mix, the Cavaliers knew they had their work cut out for them.It would be a roller coaster ride for UVa in 1999, and this season will godown as one of the most exciting runs in Virginia men’s soccer history tonote. The road to the College Cup may have been bumpy at times, but the1999 Cavaliers made it look smooth when the team came together and endedthe season with a bang.
Virginia began the year ranked #6 by Soccer America and theNational Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) in the nationalpreseason polls and Ryan Trout was tabbed a Preseason Second TeamAll-American by Soccer America. These type of accolades were nothing newto the Cavaliers as they began preparation for the ’99 campaign.Virginia’s first step towards the new season began by competing in theMaryland/Fila Preseason Kickoff Classic at Ludwig Field in College Park,Maryland on August 27-28. UVa would look to access its young squad withtwo exhibition games, one against the Rutgers Scarlet Knights and anotheragainst the Connecticut Huskies. Virginia tied the Scarlet Knights andHuskies by the score of 1-0 in each contest and finishing the preseasonwith a 0-0-2 record. UVa proved that they would once again be acompetitive team this season by tying two strong opponents, but there werestill several question marks surrounding the team heading into the regularseason.
The Cavaliers kicked off the ’99 season by hosting the 1999 CocaCola Classic in Charlottesville, Virginia on September 3rd and 5th. UVa’sfirst opponent of the season and in the tournament was the Seton HallPirates. The two teams battled to a 3-3 tie before heading to overtime inthe season-opener for both squads. In the overtime period, Steve Tottenbecame UVa’s hero after he converted a penalty kick to give Virginia a 4-3victory. In the second game of the tournament for UVa, the Cavaliers facedthe Gonzaga Bulldogs. After UVa pulled out to an early 1-0 lead, Gonzagascored three unanswered goals and hung on for a 3-2 victory, handingVirginia its first loss of the season. The trio of Sheldon Barnes, MikeFeller and Ryan Trout were named to the All-Tournament team for UVa.
Coming off their first loss of the season, the 1-1-0 Cavalierslooked to rebound in their next contest. Virginia did just that, and didso with authority in an 8-1 blowout of Appalachian State on September 8th.Trout was a one man recking crew, as he recorded a first half hat trick enroute to scoring four goals in the game. Trout became only the eighthplayer in UVa men’s soccer history to score four goals in one game and hishat tricked marked the 44th time the feat was accomplished at Virginia.The win improved the Cavs record to 2-1-0.
UVa’s next contest on September 12th was with the MarylandTerrapins. Maryland was Virginia’s first Atlantic Coast Conferenceopponent of the season, and the contest was also the Cavaliers first roadgame of the year. After both teams played through a scoreless first halfof play, The Terrapins scored the games only goal and held on for a 1-0victory. The loss evened Virginia’s record to 2-2-0 overall, 0-1-0 in theACC.
The Cavaliers returned to Charlottesville after the Maryland lossand began a five-game homestand where they finished 4-0-1 during thestretch. Virginia defeated Mount St. Mary’s 3-0 before tying Wake Forestby a score of 1-1 in its second conference match of the season. CurtisBush nettled the game tying goal to erase a 1-0 Wake Forest lead and keptthe ‘Hoos from falling to 0-2-0 in the ACC. The tie to the Demon Deacons,coupled with the win over Mount St. Mary’s moved UVa’s record to 3-2-1overall, 0-1-1 in the conference.
On September 22nd, the Cavaliers defeated Virginia Tech by thescore of 2-1. The win marked the 27th consecutive time Virginia haddefeated Virginia Tech. UVa gathered its first ACC victory of the year onSeptember 25th when Virginia defeated North Carolina, 2-1. The win overthe Tar Heels would eventually be the only ACC victory the Cavs would claimin the conference race. Virginia ended its homestand with a 2-0 win overAmerican on September 29th to improve to 6-2-1 overall, 1-1-1 in the ACC.The three-game win streak was also UVa’s season high.
Virginia would hit a wall during its next eight games, as the ‘Hooswould drop five of their next eight contest. The Cavaliers droppedback-to-back games for the first time all season with a 2-1 loss to N.C.State (Oct. 3rd) and a 1-0 loss to William & Mary (Oct. 6th). In the NCSUloss, UVa fell to N.C. State at the game-ending horn when the Wolfpack’sNick Olivencia scored the game-winning goal as time expired.
However, the Cavaliers rebounded in their next outing as the ‘Hoosrecorded their first road win of the year with a 2-0 shutout victory overVirginia Commonwealth on October 9th. The Cavs returned home toCharlottesville on a high note a looked to post their second ACC win overseason over the Clemson Tigers on October 16th. However, Clemson ralliedto top UVa 2-1 and Virginia’s record fell to 7-5-1 overall, 1-3-1 in theconference.
In their next match on October 20th, the Cavaliers gathered a muchneeded victory with a 3-0 shutout over Marshall before falling heading offto Durham, N.C. to face the Duke Blue Devils. Virginia was upended by Dukeand lost their last ACC game of the regular season by the score of 3-0.The defeat put UVa at 8-6-1 overall, 1-4-1 in the ACC. The 1-4-1 mark inthe conference was Virginia’s lowest finish in the ACC since the Cavalierswent 0-5-0 in 1975.
UVa began to feel a sense of urgency and the Cavaliers felt thepressure to win several games with the NCAA Tournament on the horizon.With a tough trip to Westwood, California and the ACC Tournament lurkingahead, Virginia knew the wins would not be easy to come by. However, theCavaliers began to play some of their best soccer at an ideal time of theyear.
UVa began competition on October 29th in the Pacific Soccer ClassicTournament hosted by UCLA. In their first game of the tournament, theCavaliers rallied from a 1-0 deficit to defeat Cal State Fullerton by thescore of 2-1. The win improved Virginia’s record to 9-6-1 overall. UVathen advanced to play UCLA in the championship game of the tournament. TheCavaliers and Bruins last met on December 14, 1997 in Richmond, Va. in theNCAA Championship contest. UCLA won that game by the score of 2-0. TheBruins would defeat the Cavaliers by the identical score in the PacificSoccer Classic on October 31st, giving the Cavs a 9-7-1 mark on the year.Virginia’s Barnes, O’Donnell and Chad Prince were named to theAll-Tournament team after UVa posted a second place finish.
After its trip to California, Virginia returned home toCharlottesville to face the Ohio State Buckeyes on November 5th. UVa cameaway with a hard fought 1-0 win before heading off to compete in the ACCTournament with a 10-7-1 record. Prior to the conference tournament,Virginia’s Kyle Martino was named the ACC Rookie of the Year, and teammatesTrout and Totten gathered Second Team All-ACC honors.
In the ACC quarterfinals, the #7 seeded Cavaliers topped #2Maryland 2-0 and advanced to the ACC semifinals to beat #3 seeded WakeForest 2-1. With the two wins, the Cavaliers avenged 1-0 loss to theTerrapins earlier in the season and handed the Demon Deacons their firstloss at home in 1999. Virginia then advanced to the ACC Championship gameto meet the #1 seeded Duke Blue Devils. UVa was looking to become thefirst #7 seed to win the conference tournament. Virginia gave Duke all itcould handle in the championship game before dropping the contest by ascore of 2-1 in triple overtime. Virginia’s Barnes, Martino and Trout werechosen to the ACC All-Tournament team.
By winning three of their last four games to improve to 12-8-1 andperforming like one of the top teams in the nation, UVa earned an at-largebid from the NCAA on the evening of November 15 to compete in the 1999 NCAADivision I Men’s Soccer Championship. In fact, the Cavaliers were soimpressive, the were awarded the sixth seed in the tournament which securedUVa homefield advantage at least through the first two rounds of thetournament.
In the opening round of the NCAA Tournament, Virginia posted a 2-1triple-overtime win over Princeton in the first round on O’Donnell’sgame-winning goal on November 21st. UVa then recorded a 3-1 victory overBrown in the second round on November 28th to advance to the NCAAquarterfinals. After recording a 2-0 record after two rounds of tournamentplay, Virginia was the only ACC school remaining of the five conferenceteams that competed in the tournament through two rounds. In thequarterfinal round of the tournament, UVa hosted the UCLA Bruins and soughtrevenge for a 2-0 loss just a few weeks prior to this contest. However,Virginia fell to UCLA by the score of 2-0 to end their successful season at14-9-1 overall.
Although the Cavaliers would loved to have ended their 1999 seasonwith a National Championship, UVa knows it has nothing to hang its headabout after the competitive ’99 season. Virginia came into its own downthe stretch and finished the year as one of the top teams in the country,despite a a shaky ride throughout portions of the season.
With only one senior departing from this years squad, the futurelooks very, very bright for the 2000 Cavaliers. The diversity that wasovercome and the experience gained by the young players this season shouldprovide huge dividends next year for UVa. Couple next seasons returningcore of battled tested players with another solid recruiting class, andVirginia should once again be atop the soccer world as UVa heads into thenew millennium. The 1999 Cavaliers were truly something special. Aftershowing so much promise at the end of the year, the best may yet to comefor Virginia.
