Cavaliers in Close Matches
All eight UVa matches have been determined by one goal or fewer. Six of the eight have been tied at the half.
Busy Stretch for Hoos
Virginia is in the midst of the busiest portion of its 2014 schedule. Beginning with the Sept. 21 game against Notre Dame, UVa will play seven matches in 21 days. The JMU match is the fourth game in that stretch. After its October 11 home match against Duke, UVa gets a six-day break prior an ACC match at Clemson; the Cavaliers have just one midweek match after that point.
UVa Looks to Snap Losing Skid
Virginia dropped a pair of one-goal games last week, falling 2-1 on Wednesday to unbeaten Davidson before suffering a 1-0 loss at No. 18 Syracuse. The Cavaliers have not lost three straight matches in nearly 10 years (Oct. 27 to Nov. 7, 2004).
Noting James Madison
James Madison is off to a 4-3-2 start and coming off a scoreless draw at No. 22 Furman last Friday. JMU has gone to double overtime in each of its last two matches, including a 4-3 win over West Virginia. JMU’s 11 goals this season have come from eight different players. The Dukes have rebounded nicely after an 0-2 start with a 4-1-2 record in their past seven games.
Virginia hits the road for a pair of matches before its next home game. The Cavaliers travel to Pitt on Saturday and head to unbeaten George Mason the following Tuesday (Oct. 7). UVa returns home Saturday, Oct. 11 to play Duke. The Duke contest is Scarf Night: the first 3,000 fans will receive a free Virginia Soccer scarf.
