Stanford, CA — The Virginia women’s soccer team recorded its fourth shut out of the season as the Cavaliers held the #19 Santa Clara Broncos off the scoreboard today in the second day of the Stanford/Nike Invitational. Virginia’s Sarah Lane (Wheaton, IL/Wheaton North) scored her first collegiate goal today and it proved to be the game-winner as the Hoos improved to 4-3 overall.
After a scoreless first half, Lane hooked up with Laura Gaworecki (Houston, TX/Cypress Creek) in the 76th minute. Gaworecki passed the ball to the center and Lane beat her defender before putting the ball in the net to give Virginia the lead they would not relinquish.
The Cavalier defense held strong against the 1999 NCAA semifinalists, limiting the Broncos to nine shots on the game. It was the first time this season that the Cavaliers have been outshot. Julie Harris (Ridgefield, CT/Ridgefield) made her first start of the season in the cage and recorded a shutout, stopping three shots to pick up the win.
The Cavaliers will host the Virginia Soccer Classic this weekend, with George Mason, Hartford, and Florida coming to Charlottesville. On Friday, Sept. 22 Florida faces Hartford while the Cavaliers take on George Mason. On Sunday Hartford and George Mason play at 1 while the Cavaliers and Gators tangle at 3:30.
