[VIRGINIA-PITTSBURGH: Men]Virginia scored its most goals in an ACC game in five years when it crushed winless Pitt, 5-0, Friday to extend its unbeaten streak to six straight matches. Freshman Riggs Lennonscored a pair of goals and Eric Bird, Todd Wharton and Ryan Zinkhan added goals.
“We got off to a good start and that is just because of the schedule we have played,” Virginia coach George Gelnovatch said. “We are programmed to play hard and fast. That is what we are used to and we started that way. We rewarded ourselves with a couple of early goals and were able to manage the game with some other players in preparation for Tuesday and Friday’s ACC matches next week.”
The Cavaliers outshot Pitt, 17-2, and did not surrender a shot on goal as Creighton transfer Jeff Galand Calle Brown were rarely tested by the Panthers, who have lost all five games in their first season of ACC play.
