Will Bates (Sr., Chester, Va.) scored in the 58th minute and the Virginia men's soccer team was stout on defense in picking up a 1-0 win over Duke last Friday in front of 4,230 fans at Klöckner Stadium. The match was both teams' ACC opener.
Marcus Salandy-Defour (Fr., Kensington, Md.) tracked down a cross near the goal line and tapped it back to Bates, who sent the ball into the far corner of the goal from six yards out for the score.
UVa finished with an 11-6 shots advantage; both teams put two shots on goal.
Virginia Bullet Points
All four Virginia matches have been determined by one goal.
Bates scored his 35th career goal Friday; he is two goals shy of reaching the UVa career top 10 in goals.
Spencer LaCivita (So., Raleigh, N.C.) earned his eighth career shutout Friday vs. Duke; he will reach the UVa career top 10 with his next shutout.
All four UVa opponents thus far have been ranked nationally at some point already this season; six future opponents are ranked among the various top 25 polls.
The Tuesday contest with Mount St. Mary's will mark the fourth of a current six-match homestand.
Noting the Mountaineers
Mount St. Mary's comes to Charlottesville with a 1-3 record following a 1-0 loss to UMBC on Friday at home. The Mountaineers' first win of the year came Aug. 31 over VMI (1-0).
Defender Mark Plaisance leads the team with three points (1G, 1A). Mount St. Mary's is coached by Rob Ryerson, a member of the Maryland Soccer Hall of Fame. The Mount is a member of the Northeast Conference and is located in Emmetsburg, Md.
Virginia-Mount St. Mary's Series
Virginia and Mount St. Mary's have met seven times previously, with the Cavaliers capturing each contest. The programs last played on Sept. 15, 2009, a 1-0 UVa home victory. Virginia outscored the Mount 18-0 in the seven previous matches.
Youth is Served
Virginia's lineup has taken on a much younger look this year, as the Cavaliers have started at least five freshmen in each game and have had at least nine underclassmen in each starting lineup. Six of UVa's 11 starters against Duke were freshmen.
Underclassmen have played 81 percent of the possible minutes through four matches (3,348 of 4,125).
Virginia steps out of ACC play at 7 p.m. Friday when it takes on No. 23 Xavier in the first-ever meeting between the programs. The Musketeers are unbeaten at 4-0-1 this year.
