Chris Agorsor scored his first goal of the season in the 110th minute of Tuesday night's game, as the Virginia men's soccer team topped Virginia Commonwealth, 1-0, in double overtime. The goal ended a 199 minute scoreless streak for the Cavaliers.

Virginia was able to apply the bulk of the pressure throughout the game, and came close to scoring on several occasions during regulation. The Cavaliers out-shot the Rams, 17-6, but could not find the back of the net until literally the last possible minute. The win improves Virginia's record to 6-2, and the Wahoos are now 20-2-1 all time against VCU.

As for Agorsor, it marked a monumental goal in his career. It marked the first goal for the sophomore since suffering a season-ending knee injury against Central Connecticut State in 2008. It's also the fifth goal of his career. Greg Monaco tallied his first career assist on the goal, connecting with Agorsor on the throw-in.

Virginia returns to ACC play on Friday night, as they travel to fifth ranked North Carolina. Face off is set for 7:00pm in Chapel Hill.
