CHARLOTTESVILLE — The Virginia women’s soccer team returns to action Thursday night as they welcome No. 19 Maryland to Klöckner Stadium. Game time is set for 7 p.m. The game is an important ACC matchup as both teams enter with 1-2 league records and look to climb the conference standings.
The Cavaliers enter the game with a 6-3-2 overall record and haven’t played since a 2-1 loss to Virginia Tech at Klöckner Stadium on Sept. 30. Lauren Alwine (Elizabethtown, Pa.) scored for the Cavaliers and the goal was assisted by Sinead Farrelly (Havertown, Pa.), who extended her point streak to six games.
The Terrapins (9-2-0) is concluding a four-game road trip to open ACC play. After losses at Florida State and Miami, they rebounded for a 4-0 win at Duke on Sunday.
Virginia and Maryland are meeting for the 31st time, with the Cavaliers holding a 24-3-3 edge in the series. The Cavaliers have more wins over the Terrapins than any other opponent. Virginia has won all 11 previous meetings against Maryland in Charlottesville. Last season, the Cavaliers scored a 3-2 overtime win in College Park on Colleen Flanagan’s golden goal.
Following the game, Virginia will begin a four-game road trip Sunday at No. 6 Boston College.
