CHARLOTTESVILLE - The No. 10 Virginia women's soccer team concludes the regular season Thursday as it hosts No. 22 Boston College at Klöckner Stadium. Game time is 7 p.m., and the game will be available to watch online through Cavaliers Live (subscription required).
Tickets are $7 for adult general admission and $5 for youth, senior and faculty/staff general admission. Group tickets (20 or more) are $4.
Prior to the game there will be a ceremony to honor the four Cavalier seniors playing their final regular season game at Klöckner Stadium. Forward/midfielder Erica Hollenberg (Fairfax Station, Va.), forward Caroline Miller (Rockville, Md.), midfielder Julia Roberts (Frederick, Md.) and goalkeeper Carrie Wisman(Bristol, Va.) will be recognized in the ceremony.
Virginia enters the regular season finale with a 12-4-1 overall record and a 5-3-1 conference mark. The Cavaliers are coming off a 5-0 win at then-No. 22 Virginia Tech on Sunday, their most lopsided win over a ranked opponent since a 5-0 win over No. 13 UNC Greensboro to open the 1988 season. Miller scored the first three goals of the evening for her second career hat trick and was honored as ACC Co-Player of the Week.
Boston College is 10-5-3 overall and 4-4-1 in the ACC. The Eagles upset top-ranked Florida State 3-2 and tied Miami 0-0 in their final two home games of the season last week. BC is led by midfielder Kristen Mewis, the ACC's leading scorer with 13 goals and 11 assists this season.
Boston College leads the all-time series 7-2-2, but Virginia has won two of the three previous meetings in Charlottesville. The Eagles won last year's meeting 2-0 in Newton, Mass. In the last meeting at Klöckner Stadium in 2010, Virginia downed top-ranked Boston College 3-2 in overtime for the first win over a No. 1 team in school history.
The ACC Tournament will begin on Sunday with quarterfinal games hosted by the top four seeds. The Cavaliers can finish anywhere from fourth to seventh depending on the results of the final regular season games. The tournament pairings will be announced by the league following the conclusion of Thursday's games.
