After getting off to a 1-3 start to their season, the UVa men's soccer team is 3-0-1 in their last four games and has outscored its opponents 12-3 in those games.
"I really think it's just a mentality," head coach George Gelnovatch says of the change in his team lately. "We've been giving up too many goals, and to me it hasn't been a fundamental team breakdown, it's more of like just your individual battle and a mentality. I think the past two games that mentality has been there."
Coming off a 2-0 win at Syracuse, the Cavaliers return home Tuesday to face VCU in a non-conference matchup at Klöckner Stadium.
Gelnovatch says the Rams will provide a tough test for his squad. "Whenever you have a team that has stretches of keeping the ball but also has a level of athleticism that can get behind you and cause problems, which they have, I think that's one of the things we have to keep an eye on. They're a possession oriented team, pretty good in every position, athletic in every position, experienced in every position. So they're a good team, it'll be a good game."
