NORFOLK, Va. - Rice scored a pair of second half goals as Old Dominion University (4-8, 2-1) women's soccer was held to six shots Friday night as Rice defeated ODU 2-0 at the ODU Soccer Complex.

After a scoreless first half, Rice (7-5-1, 3-2) took a 1-0 lead on a goal by Samantha Chaiken. Lauren Hughes sent in a free kick from 30 yards out and Suzie Meling chipped the ball in the air that Chaiken headed into the goal for her first of the season.

Just five minutes later the Owls scored again as Danielle Spriggs sent in a cross from the right side that Dominique Mazero headed in for the second and final goal of the night.
