Soccer Splits a Pair, Perspective on Football’s Offense

NCAA Football: Virginia at North Carolina Rob Kinnan-USA TODAY Sports

The Virginia Cavaliers stayed in pole position for the ACC Coastal crown on Saturday afternoon, getting by Georgia Tech, 33-28, behind 258 passing yards and two scores from Bryce Perkins. Also over the weekend, the men’s basketball team bested James Madison, 65-34, in their home opener for the 2019-20 season.

No. 1 women’s soccer suffered their first loss of the season on Sunday afternoon, falling to North Carolina in the ACC championship game, 2-1. Freshman sensation Diana Ordoñez provided the Cavaliers’ only goal in the loss.

UVA will now await the announcement of the NCAA Tournament brackets, where they expect to be a top seed, on Monday afternoon.

Men’s soccer, conversely, kept their ACC title hopes alive with a 2-1 home win in the quarterfinals over Syracuse. Next up, they’ll get third-seeded Wake Forest, also to be played at Klöckner Stadium, for the right to appear in the conference tournament final.
