Cavs Stay Perfect with Record-Setting Win

The Virginia women's soccer team is now just two games away from a perfect regular season.

The Cavaliers set a new school record with their 17th consecutive win Thursday night at Klöckner Stadium, a 4-0 shutout of Miami. Two games remain on No. 1 Virginia's regular season schedule, both at home -- against No. 3 Florida State on Sunday, and against No. 4 Virginia Tech next Thursday.

The Seminoles won 2-1 at Virginia Tech Saturday night to improve to 14-0-3 on the season. Sunday's 2 p.m. match will pit the only remaining unbeaten teams in the country head-to-head at Klöckner.

The Cavaliers got goals from four different players on Thursday night, with Morgan Brian and Molly Menchel scoring in the first half, and Makenzy Doniak and Amber Fry finding the net in the second. Emily Sonnett and Alexis Shaffer each had a pair of assists for the Cavaliers, who improved to 11-0 in the ACC with the win.

Virginia outshot Miami 28-3.

The Cavalier's 17-game winning streak at 17-0 start to the season both broke program records set by the 1990 team, which opened the year by winning its first 16 games.
