Virginia is coming off a 3-2 victory over Louisville in Friday's opener. Senior Elly Buckley (Scarborough, Perth, Australia) scored a goal, logged an assist and made a defensive save in the victory. A pair of freshmen making their collegiate debuts accounted for the Cavalier's other goals. Riley Tata (Virginia Beach, Va.) scored the first goal of the season for UVa, tapping in a long pass from Buckley just under two minutes into the game. Caleigh Foust (Bryn Mawr, Pa.) scored the third UVa goal.

Penn State began its season with a tough road match against No. 8 Old Dominion on Friday evening. The Lions staged an impressive three-goal second half after trailing 1-0 at the break to grab the win in the season-opener.

Penn State holds a 15-5 advantage in the all-time series and has won the last two meetings including a 3-2 game last season in Happy Valley. The Cavaliers' last victory over the Nittany Lions was a 3-0 game in 2010.
