CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 SPORTS)--A first half brace from Maggie Cagle followed by goals from three other cavaliers helped lift UVA over Radford 5-0. 

Virginia scored right out of the gate as Maggie Cagle was taken down in the box and converted the free kick in the first minute of play. She extended the lead just a few minutes later off an assist from Meredith McDermott. Cagle is now the third Cavalier to tally a brace this season. UVA started to run away with it in the 24th minute, extending the lead to 3-0, as Lacey McCormack sent a ball across the box that Sarah Brunner headed into the back post. 

“It was good to get on the board as early as we did," said head coach Steve Swanson, "Early goals help settle the game down a little bit. It was good to see Maggie Cagle get on the board. She’s been playing well for us and we need her to create and score goals. As the game progressed we got a little bit better. In the first half, even though we were up, I didn’t feel we were as in control as I would have liked to have had for us. We’ve gotten a little different look each time in our two exhibition games and these two games, and it’s been helpful for us. We have a big game coming up against Michigan, but I think what we’ve gotten so far should help us and give us a good platform into the game on Thursday.”

UVA would restart their scoring spree in the second half, adding two goals within minutes of each other. The first came at the hands of freshman Yuna McCormack. In the 69th minute Cagle received a ball at the top of the box and passed it over to McCormack who faked out a defender and fired her shot for the fourth goal of the evening. Maya Carter then capped the scoring with her 76th-minute goal as Aniyah Collier sent a ball in that was headed down by a defender, but Carter came up with the possession at the near post and finished for the score.

UVA hosts Michigan at 8:15 p.m. Thursday night as a part of a doubleheader with the men’s team.
