The #4 Virginia women's soccer team beat Seton Hall 3-0 Sunday at Klockner Stadium as part of the Virginia Nike Soccer Classic.
Junior Midfielder Morgan Brian led the Cavaliers with two goals and an assist against the Pirates, while Makenzy Doniak had a goal and an assist.
UVa outshot Seton Hall 36-3, and had a 5-2 corner kick advantage.
Head Coach Steve Swanson says, "The one thing that stands out today is the quality of our finishing. We created some really good chances. Normally we've been putting those in the back of the net, so we lacked a little bit there. Overall our effort was good."
Doniak adds, "We had 36 shots. We only had 3 goals. I think we definitely need to tighten it up in the attacking third and finish the ball, because against teams in the ACC, we're not going to get that many shots. So we need to finish our opportunities, for sure."
Junior midfielder Danielle Colaprico was named MVP of the Virginia Nike Soccer Classic, after scoring two goals in the Cavaliers victory against Rutgers Friday.
Virginia begins conference play against ACC newcomer Syracuse Thursday at 7 PM at Klockner Stadium.
"I think our team start has been great," says Brian. "We're obviously undefeated so far, and I think going in to play Syracuse in conference play is a good confidence booster now, and we just have to keep playing the soccer we are, and hopefully we can finish more chances."
Freshman goalie Morgan Stearns says, "This is what we play for. This, and the postseason. So we're super excited, and can't wait to really get going."
