CHARLOTTESVILLE - The No. 8 Virginia women's soccer team continues its season-opening four-game homestand Wednesday as it hosts Liberty. Game time at Klöckner Stadium is set for 7 p.m.
Tickets are $7 for adult general admission and $5 for youth, senior and faculty/staff general admission. Group tickets (20 or more) are $4.
Both teams enter the game with a 1-1 record. The Cavaliers dropped their season opener Friday to then-No. 8 Penn State, 3-1. They rebounded with a 5-0 victory over Radford on Sunday for their first win of the season. The Flames won 1-0 at Davidson on Friday in their season opener before falling 1-0 to Drexel in their home opener on Sunday.
Through two games, Virginia is led in scoring by first-year Makenzy Doniak (Chino Hills, Calif.), who has two goals and two assists. The Cavaliers' six goals this season have been scored by five different players, as Kaili Torres (Fleming Island, Fla.), Danielle Colaprico (Freehold, N.J.), Gloria Douglas (Fayetteville, N.C.) and Kate Norbo(Roanoke, Va.) have also found the back of the net.
Virginia leads the all-time series 11-0-0, with all games coming at Klöckner Stadium. This season marks the 10th consecutive year that the teams have met. The Cavaliers have outscored the Flames 54-1 during the previous 11 meetings, with Liberty's lone goal coming in last year's 9-1 Virginia win.
Virginia concludes its homestand on Sunday as it hosts UNC Wilmington at 2 p.m. The Cavaliers make their first road trip of the season the following week as they travel to Austin, Texas, for the Longhorn Invitational where they will play Texas and SMU.

But after spending the 2017 season as free safety Quin Blanding's understudy, Blount is the leading candidate to take over in the secondary for the University of Virginia's all-time leading tackler.'Hoos Exit With Heads Held HighWomen's Basketball3/19/18In its first trip to the NCAA tourney since 2010, 10th-seeded Virginia went 1-1 in Columbia, S.C., defeating seventh-seeded Cal and losing to second-seeded South Carolina.'Hoos Look To Take Next Step in NCAA TourneyWomen's Basketball3/18/18A win Sunday night over second-seeded South Carolina would send 10th-seeded Virginia to the NCAA tournament's Sweet Sixteen for the first time since 2000.
