Virginia defeated Xavier in all but one category on Thursday night.

The Cavaliers dominated shots, shots on goal, corners and fouls. UVA attempted his 19 shots while Xavier only shot his 3, and his last 2 in the season opener he doomed the Wahoos.

With less than five minutes remaining, Xavier’s header from Kendall Allen’s cross was blocked from crossing the goal line thanks to an incredible diving effort from UVA goalkeeper Holden Brown. Unfortunately for Brown, the ball hit the feet of Xavier’s Brandon Osterholt and slammed him into the back of the net, sending the Musketeers forward.
