CHARLOTTESVILLE - The No. 4 ranked University of Virginia men's soccer team opened the conference season strong, defeating NC State 2-0 Saturday night in front of 2,202 fans at Klockner Stadium. The Cavaliers scored two first half goals as they posted their fifth consecutive shutout to open the season.
The Cavaliers (4-0-1, 1-0-0 ACC) opened the game strong and took the lead in the 11th minute. Jeremy Barlow (Herndon, Va.) sent a cross along the end line that Adam Cristman (Glen Allen, Va.) one-timed in front point-blank range. Virginia struck again in the 40th minute when Nico Colaluca (Coventry, Va.) delivered a corner kick into the box that Yannick Reyering (Mettingen, Germany) headed into the net. With the goal, the first-year forward, Reyering, has scored in each of his first three collegiate games.
Overall, Virginia had a 13-8 shot advantage and a 7-5 corner kick advantage in the game. Ryan Burke (Cumberland Foreside, Maine) made four saves while recording his fifth shutout of the season. Aaron Sanders made three saves and Jorge Gonzalez made one save for NC State (3-3-1, 0-1-1 ACC).
"We are very excited to win our first ACC game of the season," said Virginia head coach George Gelnovatch. "We had a fantastic start to the game and got an early lead. We are looking forward to the upcoming week, which should be a good challenge for us against two quality opponents on the road."
Virginia will be on the road for its next two contests as the Cavaliers visit Old Dominion on September 21 and ACC newcomer Boston College on September 24.
