Oct. 26, 2003
NORFOLK, VA - Sophomore forward Laura Beeman (Chalfont, PA) scored on a break away pass from senior Diane Baucom (Virginia Beach, VA) to defeat Virginia Commonwealth, 1-0, Sunday afternoon at the ODU Soccer Stadium. The win moves Old Dominion to 3-8-4 overall and 2-4-2 in the Colonial Athletic Association. The Rams drop to 7-5-3 overall and 2-1-3 CAA. Beeman has accounted for eight of ODU's 12 goals for the season.
The match was tied at zero going into the second half until Baucom found Beeman-who had broken away from defenders- for the score with seven minutes to play. Senior goalkeeper Kristen Bailey (Hamilton, VA) recorded four saves for the contests and had her second consecutive shutout. The Lady Monarchs are 2-1-1 since Bailey has taken over the nets. VCU goalkeeper Chrissy Lloyd also had four saves in the loss.
