Break the Jeffrey Field Attendance Record Tonight

One week after an exciting overtime win at West Virginia, the #12 Lady Lions soccer team will take on #15 Virginia at their home opener at Jeffrey Field tonight. You can help be a part of history as the team is hoping to set the attendance record for the stadium.

The team hopes to get 4,500 fans into the stands for the match to crush the previous record of 3,208 set in 2006. At Fall Media Day on Wednesday, sophomore defender Lexi Marton explained why this event would be huge for the team.

“It’s kind of like White Outs for football, just having a lot of people there, knowing they’re supporting you,” said Marton. “It really gets us fired up and ready to play and wanting to win. It’s great to have that support.”

After beating UVA in last year’s home opener, the Lady Cavaliers knocked Penn State out of the NCAA Tournament last season with a 6-2 victory in the second round. This alone should be motivation enough for a big win, but you should show up anyway for the 7:30 p.m. kick-off to give the girls every extra push possible!
