The two teams met last year in Lynchburg in a battle of top-10’s when No. 5 Virginia held on for a 4-3 win over No. 8 Liberty. Hyams scored two goals with an assist in the victory.
Virginia will be home this coming weekend, hosting No. 16 Princeton on Friday, Sept. 16 at 4 p.m. and No. 4 UConn on Sunday, Sept. 18 at 1 p.m.
