Cavaliers Meet Boston College in ACC Quarterfinals on Wednesday

CARY, N.C. -- The No. 5 Virginia women's soccer team opens play at the 2010 ACC Tournament on Wednesday with a quarterfinal match with No. 18 Boston College. Game time at the WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary, N.C. is set for 7:30 p.m. and the game will be broadcast online at

The Cavaliers (13-3-2, 7-2-1 ACC) are the tournament's No. 3 seed and enter the tournament on a league-high six-game unbeaten streak. Virginia concluded the regular season Sunday with a 6-0 win at Clemson.

The Eagles (12-5-1, 5-5-0 ACC) are the tournament's No. 6 seed. Ranked No. 1 in the country earlier this year, Boston College has lost five of its last eight games, which began with a 3-2 overtime loss at Klöckner Stadium on Oct. 3.

Boston College leads the all-time series 5-2-2, but the teams have only met once in postseason play. Last year the teams met in the ACC quarterfinals with the Eagles advancing in penalty kicks after a scoreless draw.

Over the past three years all five of the Cavaliers' ACC Tournament games have gone to overtime, with Virginia going 1-0-4 in those games. The Cavaliers have been eliminated by a penalty kick shootout in each of the last three ACC Tournaments.

The tournament continues Friday with the semifinals and the final is on Sunday.
