UVA is set to host the eight-team ACCHL championship tournament at Main Street Arena this weekend. With the first seed locked up, the Hoos are prepared to face off against the eighth-seeded St. Joseph’s University on Friday at 7:00PM.
The weekend will feature four quarterfinal matchups on Friday, two semifinal games on Saturday, and the league championship on Sunday all at Main Street Arena. Tickets will be sold at the door for $5 per game or $10 for a weekend pass. Entry is free for UVA students.
UVA enters the playoff tournament on a three game winning streak after defeating Georgetown University 5-2 this past weekend on the Hoos’ senior night. Senior Ben Foley led the way with a hat trick in the final contest of the regular season.
Last season the Hoos saw their season end in the semifinals against the eventual championship-winning George Washington University. UVA will look to build upon last season’s finish with an opportunity to win the league title on home ice.
