GREENSBORO, N.C. - - Virginia sophomore forward Yannick Reyering was named Atlantic Coast Conference Men's Soccer Player of the Week after leading the Cavaliers to back-to-back wins over No. 10 UCLA and conference foe NC State.

Reyering scored three goals last week in helping No. 2 Virginia remain unbeaten with a 5-0-0 record. Against the Bruins, the sophomore forward scored on teammate Nico Colaluca's corner kick in the 88th minute en route to collecting the Cavs' fourth consecutive shutout. Reyering then added two goals, including another game-winner against NC State in Virginia's ACC-opener.

The Mettingen, Germany native now leads the Cavaliers with four goals and nine points. After tallying two game-winning goals last week, Reyering's three game-winners is only one shy of tying Duke's Mike Grella for the ACC lead.

Reyering ranks third among league opponents in shots (19) and shots per game (3.80), while he is also tied for fifth in goals with four on the young season.

Virginia will begin a three-game home stand tomorrow, September 12, at Klockner Stadium as the Cavs face St. Francis. UVa will resume league action on Friday, September 15, welcoming Boston College at 7:30pm ET.
