[VIRGINIA-OLD DOMINION MEN] Last year, Virginia's NCAA Tournament run ended with its first national championship since the Bruce Arena era. This year, the Cavs were out after 90 minutes in the first round. Alex Vaughan's goal in the 63rd minute gave Old Dominion the 1-0 win, marking the third straight time the Monarchs opened the NCAA Tournament with a win.

"It was a very hard fought game in a tough place to play, but exactly what we expected," ODU coach Alan Dawsonsaid. "We did a great job as a young team, especially in the second half. We gave a courageous effort and got the win in the end."

Virginia outshot the Monarchs, 7-1, in the first half, but only one shot was on goal and that was turned aside by Evan Newton.

Virginia, the 2009 NCAA Champion, ends its season with an overall record of 11-6-3. With the win, Old Dominion improves to 10-6-2 and advances to the second round to face Penn State on Sunday (Nov. 21).
 
“We played hard and deserved better tonight,”

“Give ODU credit, their goal was well taken," UVa coach George Gelnovatch said. "But up until the last minute I thought we were going to score. The shot Will Bateshad that the goalkeeper got a finger on and grabbed off the line. The header T.J. Cyrus puts just wide. When those things happen, it just isn't your day. Last year, we got those breaks. But this still hurts. We lose just two seniors, but everyone else returns. In the spring we will get back to training and turn our focus to next year and winning more championships.”
