Virginia is coming off a 3-0 victory over Michigan State on Thursday night, a match in which the Cavaliers held the Spartans without a shot. The shutout victory marked the third straight shutout win to start the season for the Cavaliers and the sixth consecutive shutout for Virginia dating back to the second round of the NCAA Tournament in 2015.
The Cavaliers have played 602:09 consecutive minutes of shutout soccer dating back to last season, the fifth-longest streak of shutout soccer in program history.
Virginia averages three goals per game, scoring nine goals through the first three matches of the season. Seven different players have scored for the Cavaliers, led by senior midfielder Alexis Shaffer (Cary, N.C.) and freshman Taylor Ziemer (Santa Rosa, Calif.) with two goals each. Seven different players have also notched assists on the nine goals.
Defensively, the Cavaliers are anchored by a veteran backline that features three seniors in Tina Iordanou (Upper Brookville, N.Y.), Kristen McNabb (Montville, N.J.) and Meghan Cox (Springfield, Va.) with senior Morgan Stearns (San Antonio, Texas) in goal. The group has held opponents to only nine shots through the three shutout victories this season.
