CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - - Sophomore forward Yannick Reyering scored two second-half goals including the game-winner in the 74th minute to help No. 4 seed Virginia overcome a halftime deficit to send the Cavaliers to the NCAA Quarterfinals with a 2-1 victory over No. 13 seed California Saturday night in front of 3,644 fans at Klöckner Stadium in NCAA Third Round action. The Cavaliers will now host Notre Dame at 6 p.m. Friday night with a trip to the 2006 NCAA College Cup on the line.
Reyering finished the game with six shots as he scored his 10th and 11th goals of the season. It is the second straight season that he has scored at least 10 goals. Ryan Burke finished the game with six saves, which gives him the career record with 250 saves surpassing Jeff Causey.
Reyering took advantage of a mistake by Cal goalkeeper Justin Myers in the 74th minute. Myers attempted to start a Cal attack, but his pass to one of the Cal defenders ended up being intercepted by Reyering. Reyering sideswiped a diving Myers and slid a shot into the left side of the goal from the right wing to put the Cavaliers ahead, 2-1, at the 73:43 mark.
Burke made two saves over the last eight minutes including one on a header by Andrew Jacobson in the final minute to preserve the win.
Cal struck first in the 29th minute when Jeff Sarafini collected a rebound off a Burke save on a shot from Steve Purdy. Sarafini blasted home a shot from 22 yards out in the upper left corner giving the Bears a 1-0 lead.
The Cavaliers broke through the Bears' defense in the 65th minute. After a Jonathan Villanueva corner kick, Virginia gained possession inside the 18. Nico Colaluca took a shot that Myers deflected out. Reyering gathered the loose ball and scored from four yards out to tie the game, 1-1.
Cal looked to take the lead back in the 70th minute when Pat Marion found himself free inside the box. Burke made a sliding save on a shot to keep the game knotted at, 1-1.
Virginia outshot the Bears, 19-15 and held a 7-5 advantage on corner kicks. Myers finished the game with six saves for Cal.
Notre Dame defeated No. 5 seed Maryland, 1-0, in double overtime to set up the quarterfinal match-up Friday.
