NORFOLK, Va. – After what turned out to be a one hour and thirty minute rain delay, the Old Dominion University women’s soccer team played in their third consecutive match which entailed overtime and for the second time this season came away with a 1-1 draw. The tie pulls ODU to a 0-2-2 overall record, while Campbell now moves to 1-2-1.
