CHARLOTTESVILLE – The fourth-ranked Virginia women’s soccer team will look for its first ranked win of the season Sunday as it visits No. 10 Notre Dame. Game time at Alumni Stadium is 1 p.m., and there will be a free webcast of the game at

Virginia (10-1, 2-1 ACC) is coming off its first regular season loss in two seasons, a 1-0 defeat at No. 5 Florida State last week. The loss snapped the Cavaliers’ 31-game regular season win streak, their 17-game ACC regular season win streak and their 44-game streak without being shutout.

The Cavaliers rank second in the ACC and seventh nationally in scoring offense at 3.27 goals per game. Virginia has 13 different goal scorers this season, including 11 players with multiple goals, led by junior Makenzy Doniak (Chino Hills, Calif.) with six goals.

The Fighting Irish (7-3-1, 2-1 ACC) are coming off a pair of road wins, downing Virginia Tech 2-0 and Wake Forest 1-0 last week. Goalkeeper Kaela Little is the reigning ACC Player of the Week after posting two shutouts in those victories.

The game mark’s Virginia’s first visit to South Bend for an official game (UVa played a preseason game at Notre Dame in 2012) as the Cavaliers play their first-ever game in the state of Indiana. Virginia has won both previous meetings, including 3-2 double overtime victory last year on Morgan Brian’s (St. Simons Island, Ga.) golden goal in the 101st minute.

The Cavaliers will return home for a pair of games next week. Virginia hosts Boston College Thursday at 7 p.m. and NC State Sunday at 2 p.m.
