Virginia Men's Soccer Defeats Mount St. Mary's 3-0
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Freshman midfielder Chris Albright (Philadelphia, Pa.) tallied a goal and an assist as the fourth-ranked University of Virginia men's soccer team posted a 3-0 victory over Mount St. Mary's at Kloeckner Stadium. The Cavaliers, who held an 18-4 advantage in shots, improve to 11-2-3 on the season, while Mount St. Mary's falls to 10-6-2.
Virginia opened up the scoring on a goal by freshman midfielder Ryan Trout (Media, Pa.) at the 24:57 mark. Sophomore forward Brian West (Columbia, Md.) played the ball to senior midfielder Andriy Shapowal (Chagrin Falls, Ohio) in the center of the penalty box, where Shapowal's shot from 14 yards out was stuffed by Mount St. Mary's goalkeeper Matt Lynch. The rebound went directly to Trout in the left side of the box, where he knocked it into the net from 16 yards away.
The Cavaliers increased the lead to 2-0 on Albright's goal at 51:33. Junior forward Ben Olsen (Middletown, Pa.) sent a throw down the right sideline to Albright at the top right corner of the penalty box. On a dead run, Albright knocked the ball past a defender and dribbled once before scoring from eight yards out. Virginia's final goal was scored at 70:17 by senior forward Matt Leonard (Fairfax Station, Va.). Albright ran on to a loose ball at the top right corner of the penalty box, where he took a shot from 20 yards away. The shot would have gone wide left, but Leonard deflected it into the net from eight yards out in the center.
Junior goalkeeper Mike Forensich (San Jose, Calif.) and senior goalkeeper Yuri Sagatov (Fairfax, Va.) both played half the game for the Cavaliers, combining for the shutout.
The Cavaliers will be back in action on Saturday, Nov. 1, when they travel to Old Dominion for a 7:30 p.m. game.
