GREENSBORO, N.C. – The fourth-ranked Virginia women’s soccer team looks to capture its third ACC Championship as it meets No. 2 Florida State in Sunday’s ACC Tournament final. Game time at the UNCG Soccer Stadium is 1 p.m. and the game will air live on ESPNU.

The Cavaliers advanced to the final with a 2-0 semifinal victory over fifth-ranked North Carolina on Friday. The Seminoles downed No. 10 Notre Dame 3-1 in the other semifinal.

Tickets for the game are $10 for adults, $5 for youth (18 and under), $5 for senior citizens (65 and older) and free for students of any ACC school with a current student ID.

Virginia (18-1, 9-1 ACC), the 2004 and 2012 ACC Champion, enters the game on an eight-win streak. Junior Makenzy Doniak (Chino Hills, Calif.) scored the first goal Friday against the Tar Heels and leads the ACC in scoring on 14 goals and eight assists for 36 points. She has scored in seven consecutive games, the second-longest streak in school history. Senior Danielle Colaprico (Freehold, N.J.) set up Morgan Reuther’s (Chantilly, Va.) goal on Friday, setting a new single season school record with 15 assists, which also leads the conference.

Florida State (17-1-1, 9-0-1 ACC), the 2011 and 2013 ACC Champion, is looking to become the first school to repeat as league champions since North Carolina won five straight titles from 2005-09. The Seminoles enter the final on a 14-game unbeaten streak and looks to become the first No. 1 seed to win the ACC Tournament since 2008.

Virginia leads the all-time series 18-4-4, but the teams have split the last nine meetings (4-4-1), including each winning once in the ACC Tournament. Florida State won this year’s regular season meeting in Tallahassee, 1-0, on Sept. 28. The Cavaliers have been shutout only three times in their last 80 games, but all three have been by Florida State in Tallahassee. In the four meetings between the schools during that span outside of the Seminole Soccer Complex, Virginia is 3-1-0 and has scored 10 goals.

The winner of the game will receive the ACC’s automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. The field of 64 will be announced on Monday at 4:30 p.m. on and first round action will begin on Friday, Nov. 14.
