CHARLOTTESVILLE - The No. 3 Virginia women's soccer team returns to action Thursday with a visit to No. 10 Maryland for a matchup of the top two teams in the ACC standings. Game time at Ludwig Field in College Park is 7 p.m. There will be a live webcast of the game at umterps.com (subscription required, but Cavaliers Live subscribers can use their login to access the broadcast for no extra charge).
The Cavaliers (9-1-1, 2-0-1 ACC) enters the match riding a 10-game unbeaten streak (9-0-1), their longest streak since a 13-game unbeaten streak in 2007. Virginia, coming off a 1-0 win at Clemson on Sunday, moved up to No. 3 in this week's Soccer America rankings, its highest spot in the poll in five years.
Maryland (7-2-2, 3-0-1 ACC) currently leads the ACC with 10 points through their first four conference games. The Terrapins are coming off a road trip that saw them tie Duke 2-2 and win 2-1 at Wake Forest.
Virginia leads the all-time series 26-4-4 as the Cavaliers have more wins over the Terrapins than any other opponent. The Cavaliers have an 8-4-2 all-time record in College Park, but are 1-3-1 at Ludwig Field since 2002. Last season Virginia won both meetings between the schools, 4-1 in the regular season matchup and 2-0 in the ACC quarterfinals. In the last matchup in College Park in 2010, the Terrapins edged the Cavaliers 3-2 in a game played in the midst of Tropical Storm Nicole.
The Cavaliers return home Sunday to host No. 5 Duke in a matchup televised nationally by ESPNU. In order to accommodate the broadcast, game time for the contest has been moved to 2 p.m.
