CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - The No. 9 Virginia women's lacrosse team (1-2, 0-0 ACC) hosts No. 2 Syracuse (3-0, 0-0 ACC) on Sunday, Feb. 23 at 1 p.m. at Klöckner Stadium in the ACC-opener for both squads.
Virginia is playing its third-straight home game, but is playing at Klöckner Stadium for the first time this season after having its first two home games relocated to Turf Field because of snowy field conditions.
Virginia holds an 11-4 edge in the series, but Syracuse won last season's match-up, 10-9, at the Carrier Dome. Then-No. 8 Virginia held a 5-2 lead over then-No. 2 Syracuse at halftime, but the Orange outscored the Cavaliers 8-4 in the second half to earn the victory. Virginia's last victory in the series was in a 9-7 game in Charlottesville in 2012. Virginia has won the last four home games in the series and owns a 5-2 record against Syracuse when playing in Charlottesville.
Virginia is averaging 14.0 goals per game while Syracuse is averaging 21.3 this year. Syracuse has dominated in the first half of their games, scoring 45 goals before the break and 19 thereafter. The Orange have won 57 draw controls this season to the Cavaliers' 39.
Senior goalkeeper Liz Colgan (Cockeysville, Md.) leads the ACC in saves per game at 10.67. Her 14 saves against Loyola was the highest single-game total for an ACC goalie so far this season. Colgan also leads the ACC at 3.33 ground balls per game. Junior Courtney Swan (Vero Beach, Fla.) is tied for second at 3.00. Syracuse's goalkeeper Kelsey Richardson has the lowest goals-against average in the conference a 3.33 per game. Syracuse's Kayla Treanor leads the conference by averaging 3.0 assists per game and leads with a 6.67 points-per-game.
Swan leads UVa with a 3.67 goals-per-game average, tying her with Treanor for fifth in the ACC. Swan has had at least a hat trick in all three games this season, scoring a career-high five goals in the victory over Richmond.
Senior Liza Blue (Butler, Md.) has had a pair of four-goal games this season, opening the season with a four-goal effort against Northwestern and posting a five-point game against Richmond, adding an assist to her five goals. Swan, Blue and senior Maddie Keeshan (Greenwich, Ct.) have each scored at least one goal in every game this season.
The Cavaliers are in the midst of a five-game homestand in which four of the five opponents are ranked in the top-10. Virginia hosts No. 8 Penn State on Saturday, March 1 at 12 p.m. and No. 1 North Carolina on Saturday, March 8 at 1 p.m.
Single-game reserved seats are available for all women's home games for $7. Single-game general admission adult tickets for women's home games are $5, while youth (18 and under), seniors (60 and over), and UVa faculty and staff tickets are $4 each.
