This will be the first time this season that the Cavaliers have played at Klöckner Stadium after playing five of its first six games on the road, including last Saturday’s (March 7) 10-7 loss at No. 2 North Carolina.

Freshman Kasey Behr (Northport, N.Y.) has posted a hat trick in each of the last two games. Junior Kelly Boyd (Baltimore, Md.), who leads the Cavaliers with 13 goals this season, is averaging 3.0 goals per game in the last four games and has two four-goal games in that span.

Seniors Liza Blue (Butler, Md.) and Courtney Swan (Vero Beach, Fla.) are tied for the team lead with 19 points. Blue has 12 goals with seven assists, while Swan has scored eight goals with a team-high 11 assists. Blue and Swan have combined to win 41 of Virginia’s 69 draw controls.

Virginia leads the all-time series 23-9-1 against Loyola. In the last meeting, UVa held a 5-3 lead at halftime, but Loyola scored 13 goals in the second half to earn a 16-12 victory.

The Greyhounds have opened the season with six-straight games against ranked opponents, going 1-4 so far. That stretch included playing two overtime games, with Loyola defeating No. 18 Johns Hopkins, but falling to No. 19 James Madison. Loyola is coming off a 12-8 home loss to No. 9 Penn State on Saturday. Maddy Lesher, Annie Thomas and Taryn VanThof are on the Tewaaraton Watch List.
