CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – The University of Virginia men’s soccer team defeated the Liberty Flames by the score of 3-1 in a scrimmage this afternoon at Perry Field. The contest is one of five scrimmages UVa has scheduled on its spring schedule.

The Cavaliers received its offense output from three different players after Jonathan Cole (Annapolis, Md./McDonogh), Alecko Eskandarian (Montvale, N.J./Bergen Catholic) and Matt Oliver (Waldorf, Md./Dematha Catholic) each scored a goal. Virginia’s goalkeeping duo of David Comfort (Richmond, Va./Monacan) and Brett Mayer-Aschhoff (Charlottesville, Va./Albemarle) gathered three and two saves, respectively.
