CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - The No. 6 Virginia women's lacrosse team (3-4, 0-2 ACC) tries to win its second game in a row, playing at Princeton (1-3, 0-1 Ivy) on Saturday, March 15 at 12 p.m.

Virginia is playing its second-straight road game and its second-straight game against an unranked opponent. Princeton is not currently ranked, but is receiving votes in both the IWLCA and Brine Media polls. The Tigers were ranked No. 16 in last week's poll but fell out after suffering back-to-back overtime losses, falling 17-16 to No. 14 Georgetown followed by a 14-13 OT loss in the Ivy League-opener at Brown last Saturday.

Virginia leads the all-time series 17-15, including last season's 9-7 victory in Charlottesville. Virginia's last win at Princeton was a 14-7 victory in 2010.

Virginia is averaging 14.2 goals per game while Princeton averages 12.5. Virginia senior Liz Colgan (Cockeysville, Md.) averages 11.4 saves per game while the Princeton goalkeepers have combined to average 6.0 per game. Virginia is averaging 15.1 draw controls per game while Princeton averages 14.0. Princeton has allowed just as many goals (50) as they have scored this season. The Tigers also match their opponents in ground balls (50) and draw controls (56)

Erin Munn leads the Tigers with 12 points (6g, 6a). Munn also leads the team with 12 draw controls (3.0 per game). Alexandra Bruno has a team-high nine goals.

Virginia is coming off a decisive 22-9 victory at William & Mary on Wednesday. Virginia held a 9-5 advantage at halftime, but outscored William & Mary 13-4 in the second half, with the Tribe scoring two of those goals in the final minute of the game. Virginia held a 39-20 edge in shots, including a 22-7 advantage in the second half. Virginia won the battle in the draw circle, 20-13. The 22 goals were the most scored by the Cavaliers since a 23-12 game at Richmond in 2011.

Junior Courtney Swan (Vero Beach, Fla.) came into the week ranked fifth in the ACC and 28th in the nation in goals per game, averaging 3.0 per game. She is 12th in the ACC and 50th in the nation in points per game, averaging 3.83. Those rankings will most likely improve next week as Swan had a career-high eight points at William & Mary, with four goals and four assists. She scored her four goals on just five shots. Junior Casey Bocklet (South Salem, N.Y.) has posted six-straight multi-goal games after going scoreless in the opener against Northwestern. Bocklet had a season-high four goals and six points, also a season high, at William & Mary.

Freshman Posey Valis (Baltimore, Md.) scored two goals at William & Mary, the first two of her career.

Sophomore Brooke Boyd (Baltimore, Md.) had her first assist of the season, setting up a goal for her twin sister, sophomore Kelly Boyd (Baltimore, Md.). It was the first Boyd-to-Boyd goal of their collegiate careers. Kelly Boyd had two goals at William & Mary, her first multi-goal game of the season.

The Cavaliers return to Klöckner Stadium on Wednesday, March 19 when they host James Madison at 7 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
