CHARLOTTESVILLE Virginia men’s soccer hosts Liberty in a Tuesday night non-conference match-up at Klckner Stadium. Kick-off is scheduled for 7 p.m. and live statistics are available at VirginiaSports.com.
The Cavaliers (6-3-0, 3-0-0 ACC) have won four-straight games, including three-consecutive contests on their home field, and entered the Soccer America Top 25 at No. 18 in the poll released Monday.
Tony Tchani’s team-high eighth goal of the season, a penalty kick in the 85th minute, gave Virginia its third conference victory of the year in its last outing at then-No. 12 North Carolina. With the win, UVa snapped a four-game road losing streak in the series with the Tar Heels and handed UNC its first loss at Fetzer Field in 2008.
While Tchani’s eight goals lead the Cavaliers, several other players are contributing to the team’s offense. Chris Agorsor had tallied four goals before suffering a season-ending injury on Sept. 23 vs. Central Connecticut State, while Matt Mitchell has scored three goals this year. Brian Ownby and Jimmy Simpson have netted two apiece, while Ross LaBauex and Hunter Jumper have scored once.
In goal for Virginia, Michael Giallombardo earned his third shutout of the year with a start at North Carolina. The junior from Manalapan, N.J., has allowed just one goal in 360 minutes of action.
Virginia leads the all-time series with Liberty, 16-0-0, in contests dating back to the 1986 season. Last year at Klckner Stadium, the Cavaliers prevailed, 3-0.
On deck for Virginia is a return to conference play with a Friday night game against Clemson at Klckner Stadium. Kick-off is scheduled for 7 p.m.
