CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Virginia sophomore forward Darius Madison (So., Philadelphia, Pa.) has been named the ACC Player of the Week, as announced by the conference office Tuesday (Oct. 29). Madison scored both goals in the Cavaliers' 2-0 victory last Saturday at No. 2 Notre Dame.
Madison is the first Cavalier to earn the conference honor this season. He also is the first UVa player to claim the distinction since Will Bates on Oct. 11, 2011.
Madison also was honored by College Soccer News as its National Player of the Week and was selected to Top Drawer Soccer's Team of the Week.
Madison scored unassisted goals in the 43rd and 47th minutes as Virginia handed the Fighting Irish their first loss of the 2013 season. Madison recorded his first career multi-goal game as UVa became the only side to score two goals against Notre Dame this season.
The Fighting Irish were one of three remaining unbeaten teams in the nation and are the highest-ranked foe UVa has taken down on the road since knocking off then-No. 2 Wake Forest 1-0 on Sept. 18, 2009. The victory extended Virginia's unbeaten streak to 10 matches, including the Cavaliers' last four road contests.
Virginia (7-3-4, 3-2-4 ACC) returns home Tuesday (Oct. 29) to begin a stretch three straight home contests to conclude the regular season. UVa battles UNC Greensboro at 7 p.m. Tuesday, then faces No. 20 North Carolina (Friday) and Boston College (Nov. 8) at Klöckner Stadium.
