MEN'S NEWS ... Virginia won't get out of Charlottesville fast enough and get on with the regular season. The Cavaliers lost their third straight preseason exhibition, falling to West Virginia, 2-0, on Saturday night at Kloeckner Stadium. The defeat followed losses last week to George Mason (1-0) and Old Dominion (3-1).

"I think if we get guys motivated and going we will be fine," Virginia coach George Gelnovatch said. "The other part of it is going to be getting a couple guys healthy."

The Cavs open the regular season this weekend at the Nike Portland Invitational, where they will face Portland and Washington.

* Weekend highlights from the National Soccer Festival in Ft. Wayne, Ind.:

-- No. 2 Akron beat Wisconsin, 2-1, on Anthony Ampaipitakwong's free kick.

-- Rich Balchan, Alec Purdie
and Andy Adlard scored to give No. 4 Indiana a 3-0 win over DePaul.

* No. 9 UCLA and No. 16 UC Irvine battled to a 1-1 tie on Saturday afternoon. After a listless first half, play heated up after intermission. Brett Berman put the Anteaters ahead in the 48th minute, and Prince Lapnet fed freshman Evan Raynr for the equalizer in the 84th minute. "We trained hard throughout the week, so we knew they would be a little lethargic," said UCLA coach Jorge Salcedo. "Prince and Dakota [Collins] came in and did well and had some great energy, and Michael Stephens could have scored in the overtime on a pass from Prince."
