CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – The Virginia men’s lacrosse team hits the road on Tuesday as the Cavaliers (4-0) head to Emmitsburg, Md., to take on the Mount St. Mary’s Mountaineers (0-3). Faceoff is set for 4 p.m. at Waldron Family Stadium. UVa is ranked No. 4 this week in the USILA coaches and Warrior/Inside Lacrosse media polls.
Live stats of the game will be available at VirginiaSports.com. There will be a free live video webcast available through NECFrontRow.
The Cavaliers own an 11-0 all-time record against the Mountaineers and 2014 is the 10th straight season the two programs have met in a series that started in 2003. Tuesday’s contest will be the fourth time that UVa has made the journey north to Waldron Family Stadium.
Mark Cockerton scored six goals and dished one assist in pouring rain as UVa won 18-11 the last time these teams met in 2013. The game was moved to the University Hall Turf Field because heavy rains submerged the grass field at Klöckner Stadium. Rob Emery added four goals and Nick O’Reilly had four assists.
This season, Cockerton leads UVa with 17 points with 11 goals and six assists. James Pannell leads UVa with 13 goals and is second with 16 points. Owen Van Arsdale has a team-best 10 assists. Mick Parks leads UVa with 20 ground balls and Matt Barrett is saving 45.3 percent of shots against him in the cage, while posting an 11.67 goals-against average.
Tom Gravante is in his 20th season at the helm of the Mount St. Mary’s program. Mark Hojnoski, Ryan Lamon and Clayton Wainer all share the team lead with two goals. Chris Klaiber is saving 54.5 percent of shots against him between the pipes and is posting a 14.39 goals-against average.
Virginia returns home on March 1 to host Syracuse in the Cavaliers’ ACC opener. Faceoff against the Orange is slated for 7:30 p.m. The game will be broadcast live on ESPN3 and a replay of it will air on Sunday morning at 9 a.m. on ESPNU.
