Aug. 27, 2006
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – – Junior midfielder Jeremy Barlow (Herndon, Va.) scored one minute into the second half and No. 3 Virginia held off some late attacks by No. 21 UC Santa Barbara as the Cavaliers shut out the Gauchos, 1-0, Sunday evening in front of 2,640 fans in the final game of the Virginia Soccer Classic. Virginia improved to 2-0-0 on the season while UCSB fell to 1-1-0.
“We knew this was going to be a battle on the field,” UVa head coach George Gelnovatch said. “Our guys stayed focus, and we kept the pressure on them, which resulted in a goal. This was a big win. We’re going to take this momentum and carry it over into next weekend.”
Barlow started the second half for the Cavaliers. After a foul at the top of 18 gave the Cavaliers a free kick, Yannick Reyering (Mettingen, Germany) drilled a shot into the wall that rebounded to Barlow about six yards outs. Barlow chipped in a shot for his first goal of the season putting UVa ahead, 1-0, in the 46th minute.
Virginia had three more scoring threats in the second half as Adam Cristman (Glen Allen, Va.) missed wide on a shot in the 59th minute and headers by Matt Mitchell (Tariffville, Conn.) and Sean Hinkle (Fredericksburg, Va.) were both saved.
UCSB took eight corner kicks in the last 18 minutes, but came away empty. Their last attempt came with 10 seconds remaining, which resulted in a goal kick.
Both teams battled to a scoreless tie in the first half as Virginia missed on chances in the 23rd minute. Nico Colaluca (Coventry, R.I.) had a free kick from the top of the 18 blocked. After the ball bounced back to Colaluca, he missed wide right on the rebound shot.
UCSB had to play a man down after a second yellow card was issued to a Gaucho defender in the 41st minute.
Virginia out-shot UCSB, 10-8, in the game while the Gauchos held a 14-3 advantage on corner kicks, including 11 in the second half.
Ryan Burke (Cumberland Foreside, Maine) played all 90 minutes in goal for Virginia and recorded two saves in picking up his second shutout. Kyle Reynish had four saves for UCSB.
No. 7 Akron 2, Davidson 0
Freshman Stefan Ostergren scored in the first half, and No. 7 Akron added another goal in the second half to defeat Davidson Sunday afternoon in the third game of the Virginia Soccer Classic. Ostergren scored his first goal 15 seconds after entering game at the 26-minute mark. Sinisa Ubiparipovic made a run up the middle and dished the ball off to Ostergren who scored for the 1-0 Akron lead.
The Zips did take advantage of another opportunity with Steve Kalan (Highland Heights, Ohio/Mayfield) netting a goal at 63:15 for a 2-0 lead.
