This weekend was a good one.

Every weekday, we deliver UVA links outside of STL that you may have missed from the day before. It’s our look Around The Corner.

To help get you through your case of the Monday’s, we look back at the Virginia Cavaliers’ dominance on the athletic fields this past weekend. Besides the football team, who you’ve probably already heard won their opener against Richmond on Saturday, field hockey and women’s soccer posted wins yesterday afternoon. Don’t worry people, only five more days until football is back.

UVA Women's Soccer keeps on winning (Virginia Sports)
For the fifth straight time this season, the Virginia Women's Soccer Team (5-0-0) emerged victorious, keeping their perfect record intact. UVA, who won 5-1, saw five different players score on Sunday. The Hoos will retake the field on Thursday, when they play Liberty at Klöckner Stadium.

We've wondered all offseason whether or not UVA's offense could turn out to be as dynamic as some pundits predicted. In their season opener, Bryce Perkins and company proved that they could score, and score in a hurry, putting up 42 points in total. It was against a FCS opponent, bear in mind, but, on Saturday, the hype turned out to be real.

The seventh-ranked Virginia Field Hockey Team (2-1) were winners on Sunday afternoon in their first home game of the 2018 season, defeating Longwood by a score of 2-0. Goals from two freshmen, Jacquelyn Wilkins and Grace Wallis, were the difference.


Nothing like a little dancing to celebrate a victory. Hopefully we see this a few more times (or many more times) throughout the rest of the season.
