TOWSON, Md. - The No. 1 Virginia Cavaliers (8-0) overcame a first quarter deficit and rode four goals from Chris Bocklet and four points from Brian Carroll to handily defeat the Towson Tigers (1-4), Sunday afternoon at Unitas Stadium, 15-10.
Virginia outshot Towson (37-34), nearly doubled the Tigers in ground balls (48-26) and won the first seven faceoffs, and won that category too (17-10). The Cavaliers were also perfect on clears (17-of-17) for the second game this season.
UVa also was a perfect 18-of-18 on clear attempts at Mount St. Mary's (Feb. 23), marking the first time the Cavaliers succeeded on every clear attempt in a game since they also went 18-of-18 against Massachusetts in the 2006 NCAA championship game, May 29, 2006.
Towson became only the second of UVa's eight opponents to register double digits in scoring, matching Syracuse's 10 scores on March 7. Pastirik and Hughes each scored three goals to lead the Tigers' scoring. Pastirik led all players with five points, including two assists.
