CHARLOTTESVILLE - The top-ranked Virginia women's soccer team looks to complete a perfect regular season Thursday as it hosts No. 5 Virginia Tech at Klöckner Stadium. Game time is 7 p.m., and there will be a live video broadcast of the contest via a Cavaliers Live subscription on

Tickets for the game are $7 for adult general admission and $5 for youth, senior and faculty/staff general admission. Group tickets (20 or more) are $4. Free parking is available in the University Hall lots. Fans will receive the third and final set of 2013 Virginia women's soccer trading cards.

Prior to the game, Virginia will honor its nine fourth-years with a Senior Day ceremony. Goalkeeper Danielle DeLisle (Baltimore, Md.), forward Gloria Douglas (Fayetteville, N.C.), defender Shasta Fisher (Saugus, Calif.), forward Amber Fry (Northfield, Ill.), defender Molly Menchel (Alexandria, Va.), midfielder Kate Norbo (Roanoke, Va.), goalkeeper Churchill O'Connell (McLean, Va.), midfielder Annie Steinlage (Grand Haven, Mich.) and defender Morgan Stith (Montclair, N.J.) will be recognized prior to their final regular season appearance at Klöckner Stadium.

Thursday's contest marks the first game in any sport between Virginia and Virginia Tech with both teams ranked in the top five nationally. A win over the Hokies would be the Cavaliers' fourth top-five win of the season and their sixth top-10 win.

Virginia (18-0, 12-0 ACC) is in its seventh week as the nation's consensus No. 1 team and looks to be the first team to post a perfect regular season record since Stanford in 2009. The Cavaliers lead the nation in goals with 57 this season and are the only team in the nation to have three double-digit goal scorers. Sophomore forwards Makenzy Doniak (Chino Hills, Calif.) and Brittany Ratcliffe (Williamstown, N.J.) have 13 and 11 goals, respectively. Junior midfielder Morgan Brian (St. Simons Island, Ga.) has 10 goals and leads the ACC with 12 assists. Virginia's defense leads the ACC with a 0.50 goals against average and has posted shutouts in seven of the last eight games.

The Cavaliers are coming off a 1-0 overtime victory over No. 3 Florida State Sunday. Steinlage's golden goal 54 seconds into extra time gave Virginia its 18th straight victory and clinched the program's first ACC regular season title.

The Hokies (14-2-2, 9-2-1 ACC) have clinched a top-four finish in the ACC after defeating Miami 1-0 Sunday in Blacksburg. Virginia Tech had its nine-game unbeaten streak snapped last Thursday with a 2-1 loss to Florida State.

Virginia leads the all-time series 16-2-1, including a 10-1-0 mark in Charlottesville. The Cavaliers have won the last four meetings against the Hokies, including a 5-0 victory last year in Blacksburg.

The Cavaliers will be the No. 1 seed for this year's ACC Tournament, which begins Sunday with quarterfinal games hosted by the top four seeds. Virginia will host the No. 8 seed at 1 p.m. at Klöckner Stadium. The complete seedings will be announced Thursday following the completion of regular season play.
