CHARLOTTESVILLE – The fourth-ranked Virginia women’s soccer team returns home Thursday (Oct. 9) as it hosts Boston College in ACC action. Game time at Klöckner Stadium is 7 p.m. and the game will be televised on the ACC Regional Sports Network (Comcast Mid-Atlantic Plus in Virginia).

Tickets for the game are $7 for adult general admission and $5 for youth, senior and faculty/staff general admission. Group tickets (20 or more) are $4. Free parking is available in the University Hall lots.

Virginia (11-1, 3-1 ACC) is coming off a 2-1 victory at No. 10 Notre Dame on Sunday. Reigning ACC Player of the Week Brittany Ratcliffe (Williamstown, N.J.) scored the game-winning goal with 20 seconds remaining. Ratcliffe is tied with junior forward Makenzy Doniak (Chino Hills, Calif.) for the team lead in goals with six this season.

The Cavaliers enter the game riding a school-record 26-game home winning streak. Against unranked opponents, Virginia has won 41 consecutive games and is unbeaten in its last 55 games (54-0-1).

The Eagles (8-5, 1-3 ACC) are looking to snap a two-game losing streak. Boston College suffered a 3-0 loss at Syracuse on Saturday in its last outing.

Boston College leads the all-time series 7-4-2, but the Cavaliers have won three of the four previous meetings at Klöckner. Virginia defeated Boston College 2-1 last year in Boston to record its first road win in the series. In the last meeting in Charlottesville in 2012, the Cavaliers erased a 1-0 halftime deficit with five second-half goals for a 5-1 victory.

The Cavaliers will conclude their two-game homestand on Sunday (Oct. 12) as they host NC State. Game time is 2 p.m. It will be Scarf Day at Klöckner Stadium as the first 1,500 fans will receive a Virginia soccer scarf.
