CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 SPORTS) -- Through a lightning delay and 'swamp'-like conditions at Klöckner Stadium, No. 2 seed Virginia shone through with a 17-8 win over Richmond in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

The Cavaliers advance to the NCAA Quarterfinals for the fourth-straight season and will head to Albany where they will face the winner of Georgetown and Yale Saturday, May20 at either noon or 2:30 p.m. on ESPNU.

UVA took a 5-2 lead after the first quarter thanks to two early goals from leading scorer Xander Dickson taking him to 58 goals on the season. With his first goal of the afternoon, Dickson broke the program record for most goals in a single season, passing Doug Knight's record of 56 set in 1996.

The lightning delay hit just after the first quarter ended and when play resumed the rain was at full strength, but little could slow the Cavaliers.

Connor Shellenberger tallied two goals and four assists, the STAB alum's first multi-goal game at home since March 11 against Towson. Alongside Shellenberger and Dickson, fellow attackman Payton Cormier scored six goals to tie for the most in a single NCAA Tournament game in program history.

Virginia has now won ten of their last 11 NCAA Tournament games since 2019.
