UVa Women's Soccer to face GW, Duke and Wake Forest
THE ROAD AHEAD: The Cavaliers will conclude their current homestand on Tuesday, Sept. 23, when they play host to George Washington at 7:00 p.m. UVa will be looking for revenge, as the Colonial Women posted their first-ever win in the series last year by score of 2-1. Following that game, the Cavaliers will hit the road for their first two Atlantic Coast Conference games of the season. Virginia will play at ninth ranked Duke on Friday, Sept. 26, at 7:00 p.m., and then head to No. 12 Wake Forest for a 1:00 p.m. contest on Sunday, Sept. 28.
THE SERIES RECORDS: Virginia leads the all-time series with George Washington 10-1-0, with the Colonial Women gaining their only win last year. In the previous 10 games, the Cavaliers had outscored G.W. 24-5. Duke and UVa stand tied in their all-time series 5-5-4, but the Blue Devils have been dominant in recent years. After the Cavaliers won the first five games between the schools, Duke has gone 5-0-4 with four straight wins over the last two years. Wake Forest has played Virginia three times before this season, with UVa winning every game and outscoring the Demon Deacons 12-1.
THE PRINCETON RECAP: Angela Hucles had two goals and an assist as the fifth-ranked Cavaliers posted a 3-0 victory over Princeton to claim the championship of the Coca-Cola Classic. Hucles opened the scoring with less than three minutes remaining in the first half when she volleyed in a cross from Breanne Smith. Jill Maxwell increased the lead to 2-0 less than three minutes after the intermission, when she knocked in a pass from Tracey Lache. Hucles concluded the scoring at 65:25, when her long shot from 30 yards on the right wing hooked into the net. Hucles was named the Offensive MVP of the tournament, while Carryn Weigand earned Defensive MVP honors.
THE KANSAS RECAP: The Cavaliers used a hat trick from Angela Hucles to power the offense in a 4-0 win over Kansas on the first day of the Coca-Cola Classic. Hucles first goal came at the 2:30 mark, when her crossing pass was deflected into the goal by a Jayhawk defender. She added her second goal just over four minutes later, knocking in a pass from Jill Maxwell from eight yards out in the right side of the box. Hucles completed the hat trick at the 15:10 mark, taking a pass from Jennifer Rawlings in the left side of the box and hitting from 12 yards away. Tammy Westinghouse scored her first collegiate goal at 85:14 to finish off the scoring.
CAVALIERS IN THE RANKINGS: Once again this season, Virginia is among the top ranked teams in the nation. Heading into the game with George Washington, UVa stands fourth in the Soccer America poll, while being ranked No. 3 by the NSCAA, No. 4 by Soccer News and No. 3 by Soccer Buzz. On the year, the Cavaliers have been ranked lower than ninth only once (coming in 11th in the NSCAA preseason poll).
HUCLES CLIMBS SCORING CHARTS: With 19 points on eight goals and three assists in only seven games this season, sophomore forward Angela Hucles ranks fourth in the ACC and 14th in the nation in scoring. She has also broken into the UVa all-time top 10 for both goals and points, even though this is only her second season of play. Hucles stands tied for eighth all-time in goals (25) and 10th in points with 53. She is also tied for fifth all-time in game-winning goals with nine. During her career with the Cavaliers, Hucles has averaged nearly a goal a game (25 goals in 26 games).
DEFENSE CONTINUES SHUTOUT STREAK: With the two wins in the Coca-Cola Classic last weekend, the UVa defense has now shutout its last three opponents (Portland, Kansas and Princeton). For the year, the Cavaliers now have four shutouts and a team goals against average of 0.74. Sophomore goalkeeper Megan Boehm has been one of the main reasons for the success, posting a 5-0-0 record with an 0.51 goals against average and 10 saves, after missing the first two games of the year due to injury.
