WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – The Virginia women’s soccer team concluded the road portion of its 2009 regular season with a 0-0 tie at No. 5 Wake Forest. The Cavaliers move to 7-5-4 overall and 2-4-2 in the ACC with the draw, while the Demon Deacons go to 12-3-2 overall and 4-2-2 in the ACC.
“This has been traditionally a tough place for us to get a result, so while we would have liked to get three points, we will take the tie,” said head coach Steve Swanson. “I was pleased with the effort and we had chances to get a goal to win this game. There were enough positives from this game that we can take into next week when we have a pair of key home games to close out the regular season.”
Overall, the Demon Deacons outshot the Cavaliers 12-9, while each team had six corner kicks. Chantel Jones (Midlothian, Va.) made four saves in net for the Cavaliers to post her second consecutive shutout and her sixth of the season. Amanda Barasha made two saves for Wake Forest.
The Cavaliers return home next week to conclude the regular season with a pair of home games. Virginia hosts Florida State on Friday night and Miami on Sunday afternoon.
