UVA Soccer shuts out Howard, 2-0


Wayne Rooney would be proud. Only a week after upsetting an undefeated Maryland squad and notching a hat-trick against Wake Forest, UVA Soccer player Will Bates scored one of the two goals against a scoreless Howard University squad last night. Bates nabbed his goal on a penalty kick during the 71st minute of play.

UVA Soccer is now three games into a winning streak as it plans its trek to Virginia Tech for a Friday game. Bates, ranked top forward in the ACC by TopDrawerSoccer.com, leads a team that now ranks 15th in the NCAA. Want to learn more about Bates? Read a profile in this week’s C-VILLE here.
