CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - For the second time in as many weeks, the No. 9 Virginia women's lacrosse team (4-4, 0-2 ACC) will play a Wednesday night game against a Colonial Athletic Association opponent, taking on No. 19/17 James Madison (5-1, 0-0 CAA) on March 20 at 7 p.m. in Harrisonburg, Va.
Last Wednesday, Virginia defeated William & Mary, 18-5, and closed out the weekend with a 9-7 victory over Princeton on Saturday.
James Madison is coming off a 9-8 overtime victory at Loyola on Saturday (March 16). The Dukes rallied from a 4-0 halftime deficit to trail 7-6 late in the game. Amy Roguski scored the game-tying goal with 15 seconds remaining in regulation. JMU's Ali Curwin scored the game-winning goal with nine seconds remaining in the second overtime period. Loyola had a shot to tie the game with one second remaining, but Schylar Healy made the save to secure the victory.
The victory over No. 11 Loyola was JMU's second game this season against a top-20-ranked team. The Dukes fell 13-12 at No. 7 Penn State on March 6.
The victory at Loyola also helped James Madison earn a top-20 ranking for the first time this season. The Dukes have gone from earning votes to being ranked No. 17 in the deBeer/ Inside Lacrosse media poll and 19 in the IWLCA poll. Virginia moved up to No. 9 in this week's deBeer/Inside Lacrosse media poll after being ranked No. 11 last week and remained at No. 9 in the IWLCA poll for a second-straight week.
Virginia holds a 28-12-1 advantage in the series and has won 10 of the last 12 games between the two teams, but the Dukes have won two of the last three. JMU won 10-9 in Charlottesville in 2010 when the Dukes were ranked No. 20 and Virginia ranked No. 5. The No. 11 Dukes defeated the No. 12 Cavaliers, 16-14, in 2011, UVa's last trip to Harrisonburg.
Since 2010, the Cavaliers are 10-2 against CAA teams, with both losses coming at the hands of James Madison.
The Dukes and Cavaliers also scrimmaged against one another on Oct. 3 during 2012 "fall ball" training.
This will be the fifth game for the Cavaliers this season against a ranked opponent. Virginia is 1-4 against teams ranked in the top-20 with its sole win coming at then-No. 6 Loyola, 10-9.
