CHARLOTTESVILLE — The Virginia women’s soccer team concludes its regular season this weekend when it hosts a pair of crucial ACC games at Klöckner Stadium. The Cavaliers host No. 4 Florida State, the ACC leader, Friday night at 7 p.m. and Miami on Sunday at 2 p.m.

Virginia (7-5-4, 2-4-2 ACC) enters the week in ninth place in the ACC and needs to win both games to guarantee a place a top-eight finish and a place in next week’s ACC Tournament. The Seminoles (13-2-1) lead the conference with a 6-1-1 record and are looking to wrap up the No. 1 seed for the ACC Tournament. Miami (8-8-1) currently sits in eighth place, the final place to make the ACC Tournament, with a 3-4-1 conference mark.

The Cavaliers got a pair of key road results last week. On Thursday, Virginia won 1-0 at Duke on a goal by Jess Rostedt (Kent, Ohio). They followed that win with a 0-0 tie at No. 5 Wake Forest on Sunday. Those games ended a four-game road trip for the ‘Hoos.

On Friday, Virginia will look to continue their success against the Seminoles. The Cavaliers are 14-0-3 all-time against Florida State, including a 6-0-1 mark at Klöckner Stadium. Virginia leads the all-time series with Miami 4-1-1, including a 3-0-0 record in Charlottesville.

Sunday’s game will also be Senior Day for the Cavaliers. Caitlin Miskel (Boca Raton, Fla.), Rostedt, Amanda Stewart (West Chester, Pa.) and Blair Weymouth (Holderness, N.H.) will be honored prior to the game.
