Virginia went 1-1 last week in a pair of one-goal games, falling 2-1 to No. 1 North Carolina while defeating No. 13 Northwestern, 2-1, to remain at No. 4 in the NFHCA poll.
Virginia is scoring 3.44 goals per game, which ranks ninth in the nation. The Cavaliers also rank ninth with a +2.02 scoring margin.
Junior goalkeeper Jenny Johnstone (Paisley, Scotland) comes into the week ranked 10th among all NCAA Division I goalkeepers with a 78.6 save percentage. Johnstone's 1.27 goals-against average ranks 13th. Johnstone is second in the ACC, averaging 4.89 saves per game.
In addition to Johnstone's saves, the Cavalier defenders have amassed seven defensive saves this season. Only two teams, Radford and Vermont, have more defensive saves this season. Senior Elly Buckley (Scarborough, Perth, Australia) has two defensive saves. Senior Chloe Pendlebury (Perth, Australia) and freshman Jeannie Blackwell (Virginia Beach, Va.) each logged a defensive save in the victory over Northwestern.
Buckley leads the ACC in shots (63), points (22) and goals (9). In the national rankings, Buckley is 10th in goals per game (1.0) and 13th in points per game (2.44). Freshman Caleigh Foust (Bryn Mawr, Pa.), who scored the game-winning goal against Northwestern, is 18th in the nation with 0.89 goals per game and 37th with 1.78 points per game.
