CORAL GABLES, Fla. – The No. 9 Virginia women’s soccer team begins a season-long three-game road trip on Thursday as it visits Miami. Game time at Cobb Stadium in Coral Gables is slated for 7 p.m.
The Cavaliers are 10-3-1 overall and 3-2-1 in the ACC after a 2-1 loss to No. 12 Wake Forest last week. It was the second time this season Virginia suffered a loss when leading at the half. The Cavaliers had only lost one game when ahead at halftime in the previous eight seasons combined.
Miami enters the game with a 7-5-1 overall record and a 2-3-0 mark in the ACC. The Hurricanes are coming off a 2-0 win at Clemson last week. Miami is looking for its first home conference win of the season as they start a three-game homestand.
The Cavaliers lead the all-time series 7-1-1, including a 2-1-0 mark in Coral Gables. Virginia has won the last four meetings between the schools, including a 2-0 win last season at Klöckner Stadium. The Cavaliers posted a 4-1 win in 2010 in their last visit to south Florida.
Following Thursday’s game, Virginia will continue its trip with a Sunday visit to top-ranked Florida State. Game time at the Seminole Soccer Complex is 1 p.m., and the game will be broadcast online by ESPN3.
