CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – For the tenth time this season the Cavaliers held an opponent off the scoreboard as No. 8 Virginia (11-2-3, 4-2-2 ACC) used a second-half goal to take a 1-0 victory over Wake Forest (9-5-2, 3-5-0 ACC) on Thursday night at Klöckner Stadium.

HOW IT HAPPENED
After controlling the bulk of the first half, the Cavaliers came out on the attack early in the second. Jill Flammia played a ball ahead through the middle of the field out toward the right where Haley Hopkins picked it up in stride at the corner of the box and raced toward the endline. She then played the ball back toward the spot for a one-touch redirect from Cagle who put it into the upper right corner.
