Game #17
#11 Virginia (9-5-2, 4-3-1) at Maryland (4-8-4, 0-5-3)
October 22, 2006
6 p.m.
Ludwig Field
College Park, Md.

The Cavaliers look to get back in the win column Sunday as they visit Maryland. Virginia is looking for its first win College Park since 2000, and a win would also mark the 20th consecutive season the Cavaliers have posted a double-digit win total.

Virginia enters the game with a 9-5-2 record, 4-3-1 in the ACC, following the 1-0 loss to Boston College on Friday night. Jess Rostedt leads the Cavaliers in scoring with six goals and three assists for 15 points this season. Christina de Vries has a 0.57 goals against average, while posting six shutouts in net this season.

Maryland enters the game with a 4-8-4 record on the season, 0-5-3 in the ACC, following a scoreless draw at Virginia Tech Friday. The Terps are the only ACC team without a conference win. Maryland has been shutout in each of its last six games, but have played to scoreless draws in three of their past four games. Goalkeeper Nikki Resnick has made 112 saves on the season, which leads the ACC.

Sunday’s game is the 28th all-time meeting between the schools with Virginia holding a 22-2-3 advantage in the series. The 22 wins over the Terps are the most for Virginia against any opponent. Despite the overall advantage in the series, the Cavaliers are 0-1-1 in their last two trips to College Park. The Cavaliers have posted shutouts in the last four games of the series, including a 2-0 win at Klockner Stadium last season.

In ACC play, the Cavaliers have struggled offensively, scoring just six goals in eight conference games. Virginia has also been shutout four times in conference play, which is more than they were shutout the previous three years (2003-05) combined, in which they were shutout just three times in ACC play during that span.
