CHARLOTTESVILLE — The Virginia women’s soccer team returns to action Saturday as it visits No. 2 North Carolina. Game time at Fetzer Field in Chapel Hill is slated for 1 p.m.

The Cavaliers (6-4-3, 1-3-1 ACC) are looking to snap a three-game winless streak. Last week they played a pair of overtime games against ranked opponents, tying No. 19 Maryland 2-2 on Thursday before falling 1-0 in overtime at No. 6 Boston College on Sunday.

The Tar Heels (11-1-1, 4-1-0 ACC) are coming off a 5-0 victory over NC State last week.

North Carolina leads the all-time series 33-0-2, with both ties coming in ACC Tournament play. The Cavaliers won the 2004 ACC title in penalty kicks over the Tar Heels, while in the 2007 semifinals, North Carolina advanced in penalty kicks.

Virginia will continue its four-match road stretch on October 22 when it makes another trip to Tobacco Road with a match at Duke.
