CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - The No. 4 Virginia field hockey team (8-1, 2-0 ACC) closes out a long homestand by taking on Pacific (4-5, 0-2 America East) on Monday, Sept. 25 at 1 p.m. at University Hall Turf Field in Charlottesville, Va.
Please note, this game was originally slated to begin at 2 p.m. but was moved up to a 1 p.m. start time.
The match will stream live online as an ACC Network Extra contest on ESPN3 and the WatchESPN app. Live stats will be available through a GameTracker link on VirginiaSports.com. Admission is free for all of Virginia’s regular-season home field hockey games.
Virginia has won a conference-best seven games in a row, including a 3-0 victory over No. 8 Boston College on Friday night. Freshman midfielder Pien Dicke (Den Haag, Netherlands) had a hand in all three goals, scoring the first and third and assisting on the second. The Cavaliers held a 21-11 edge in shots, outshooting the Eagles 15-2 in the first half, but BC had a 9-6 advantage after the break.
Virginia comes into Monday’s contest on the heels of back-to-back shutouts after blanking Richmond, 7-0, last week. The last time a team scored on the Cavaliers was a goal by Estelle Hughes 13:26 into the game against William & Mary on Sept. 15, giving the Cavaliers’ defense a span of 196:34 without allowing a goal.
Pacific also picked up a win over a ranked opponent on Friday, topping No. 18 William & Mary, 5-4. Krieke van Wyk scored a pair of goals in the victory. Goaltender Marlise van Tonder recorded six saves as she registered her fourth win of her debut season as a Tiger.
Virginia has played nine of its first 10 games of the season at Turf Field, but will be back on the road next weekend, playing at No. 11 Wake Forest (4-4, 2-1 ACC) on Friday, Sept. 29 at 6 p.m. The Cavaliers will be back at Turf Field the next weekend, hosting No. 6 North Carolina on Friday, Oct. 6 and Drexel on Sunday, Oct. 8.
