THE SHORT STORY
Redshirt junior Samantha Jerabek’s goal in the 52nd minute drew VCU within one of No. 8 Virginia, but the Rams were unable to find the equalizer, falling 2-1 Saturday night at the Sports Backers Stadium.

  • In the 12th minute, Virginia earned a free kick. Cavaliers freshman Lia Godfrey struck a shot on goal that was deflected by Haakma, but the rebound found the right foot of junior Claire Constant who placed it in the back of the net
  • Following a corner in the 51st minute, Virginia fired a series of shots on goal. The ball squirted out to sophomore Diana Ordonez who put it away in the bottom right corner of the net
