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.

Youth is Served

Underclassmen have played 81 percent of the possible minutes through four matches (3,348 of 4,125).
