CHARLOTTESVILLE – The second-ranked Virginia women’s soccer team continues a five-game homestand Sunday afternoon as it hosts Hofstra on the final day of the 2014 Virginia Nike Soccer Classic. Game time at Klöckner Stadium is 2:30 p.m.

The final day of the Virginia Nike Soccer Classic features a pair of games. The first game of the day features Tennessee and Richmond and kicks off at noon. Tickets are $7 for adults and $5 for youth, seniors and faculty/staff; one ticket is good for admission into both matches of the doubleheader. Group ticket orders of 20 or more tickets are $4.

Virginia (6-0-0) moved up to No. 2 this week in all three polls (Soccer America, NSCAA, Top Drawer Soccer) and is one of 11 remaining unbeaten/untied teams in Division I. The Cavaliers rallied for a 2-1 victory over Tennessee Friday night on the first day of the tournament. Sophomore Kristen McNabb (Montville, N.J.) and senior Danielle Colaprico (Freehold, N.J.) scored second half goals to give Virginia its first come-from-behind victory of the season.

The Pride (4-2-0) enters the game on a two-game win streak after it downed Duke 2-1 in its first game of the Virginia Nike Soccer Classic. Hofstra is led by Sam Scolarici, who ranks second nationally with eight goals this season.

Sunday’s game is the second all-time meeting between the schools. Virginia won the only previous meeting, posting a 7-0 victory in 2009 at Klöckner Stadium. That game featured the fastest three-goal span in Cavalier history, as Caroline Miller (two goals) and Meghan Lenczyk (one goal) scored in a span of 1:50.

The Virginia Nike Soccer Classic is in its 27th year and the Cavaliers have won the title 16 times, including six of the past seven years. Virginia would post its 17th title with a victory over Hofstra.
