CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - The Virginia men's soccer team has earned the No. 4 seed and will play host to a quarterfinal game of the 2011 ACC Men's Soccer Championship at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Klöckner Stadium. The Cavaliers will battle No. 5 seed Wake Forest in the quarters.
Tickets for the quarterfinals are $10 for reserved seating, $8 for general admission and $5 for youth/senior general admission. Fans can order tickets by phone through the Virginia Athletics Ticket Office at 800-542-UVA1 (8821) or 434-924-UVA1 (8821). Tickets are also available at the gate beginning one hour prior to the start of play.
With their 4-1 win Thursday over NC State, the Cavaliers finished the regular season in a third-place tie with Duke and Wake Forest in the final ACC standings. Through the league's tiebreaker procedures, Duke earned the No. 3 seed, UVa the No. 4 seed and Wake the No. 5 seed. Virginia and Wake Forest played earlier this season (Oct. 14), with the Demon Deacons claiming a 4-3 win in Winston-Salem, N.C. The teams also played in the ACC quarterfinals last year, with UVa nabbing a 1-0 victory.
North Carolina holds the top seed for the tournament and will be the host site for two games for the nine-team tournament, which opens on Monday (Nov. 7).
Eighth-seeded NC State (6-10 overall, 2-6 ACC) will face ninth-seeded Virginia Tech (4-12-2, 1-6-1) in Monday's 1 p.m. first-round game at UNC's Fetzer Field. The regular-season champion Tar Heels (14-2-2, 5-1-2) will then play host to that first-round winner on Tuesday at 7 p.m.
Three other quarterfinal matches are scheduled for 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 8, at campus sites, with the higher seed serving as the host team. Second-seeded and defending champion Maryland (13-2-3, 4-2-2) will welcome seventh-seeded Boston College (12-5, 4-4) in a matchup of teams currently ranked among the nation's top 10. Sixth-seeded Clemson (8-8-1, 4-4) will travel to third-seeded Duke (10-6-1, 4-3-1), and fourth-seeded Virginia (11-6-1, 4-3-1) will play host to fifth-seeded Wake Forest (8-6-4, 4-3-1).
The tournament then moves to WakeMed Soccer Park at Cary, N.C., on Friday, Nov. 11, for semifinal matches at 5:30 and 7:30 p.m. Both contests will be shown nationally by ESPN3.
