CHARLOTTESVILLE - The ACC Champion Virginia women's soccer team will host a doubleheader of second round NCAA Tournament games on Friday at Klöckner Stadium. Duke and Miami (Ohio) will meet in the first game at 4 p.m. and the Cavaliers will face Rutgers in the second game at 7 p.m.
Tickets for the doubleheader are $9 for reserved seats, $7 for adult general admission and $5 for youth/student/senior citizen general admission. Fans can order tickets for the tournament online at VirginiaSports.com and by phone through the Virginia Athletics Ticket Office at 800-542-UVA1 (8821) or 434-924-UVA1 (8821). Tickets will also be available at the gate beginning one hour prior to the start of play.
On Friday, cash parking will be available for $5 in the University Hall, McCue Center and John Paul Jones Arena lots, and free parking will be available in the Emmet/Ivy Parking Garage.
This season marks the 15th time in the past 19 years that the Cavaliers have hosted NCAA Tournament play at Klöckner Stadium. Overall, Virginia has a 20-10-3 record in home NCAA Tournament games.
Virginia is making its 19th consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance and 25th overall appearance. Only North Carolina and Notre Dame have longer active streaks of tournament appearances.
The Cavaliers are 17-4-1 this season after a 4-1 first-round win over La Salle last week. Virginia has advanced past the first round every year since the tournament went to 64 teams in 2001, joining North Carolina, Portland, Texas A&M and UCLA as the only teams to accomplish that feat. With a win against the Scarlet Knights, Virginia would match the school record for wins in a season with 18, and would advance to the NCAA Round of 16 for the eighth consecutive year.
Rutgers is 13-7-1 and reached the second round after a 1-0 win at Colgate last week in the opening round. The Scarlet Knights are looking to reach the NCAA Round of 16 for the fourth time in school history (1987, 2001, 2008).
Friday's game is the fifth all-time meeting between Virginia and Rutgers, but the first in 17 years. The Scarlet Knights lead the all-time series 3-1. The first three meetings, all at neutral sites, were won by Rutgers from 1986-88 before the Cavaliers won the last meeting, 1-0, in 1995 at Klöckner Stadium.
The Virginia-Rutgers winner will meet the Duke-Miami (Ohio) winner in the third round. That game is scheduled for Sunday at 4 p.m. at Klöckner Stadium.
