Ian Laviano is heating up just in time for Virginia.
The Team 91 2017 alumnus by way of Cold Spring Harbor was back to his old tricks in Saturday’s 18-16 win over North Carolina in an ACC battle of two of the country’s best teams. Laviano buried four goals and added two assists to give the ‘Hoos their fourth straight win.
The win slots UVA into third place in the ACC, the country’s toughest conference. Laviano’s hat trick was his second in three games, and he only needed five shots to bury his four tallies.
This cross-field bounce pass from @HofstraMLAX's Ryan Tierney was absurd!
