NORFOLK, VA  -The Old Dominion women's soccer team tied a team record for goals scored in a game Sunday afternoon, defeating the Longwood Lancers 6-1 at the ODU Soccer Stadium.  The six goals is the most since ODU defeated Mercer 6-1 during the 2000 season.  Laura Beeman (Chalfont, PA) led the assault for the Lady Monarchs, with two goals, as ODU improves to 1-1 for the year.  The Lancers fall to 0-2.


After a scoreless first half, the Lady Monarchs got things going early in the second, with Meredith Worsley (Durham, NC) scoring, off a Becca McLain (Virginia Beach, VA/First Colonial) assist, at the 46:54 mark.  Nearly 17 minutes later, Lisa McKenzie (Inverness, Scotland) scored, off a penalty kick rebound, to give ODU the 2-0 lead.  Longwood answered right back, with Ashley Gray connecting just two minutes later, to cut the lead to 2-1.


Beth Pagano (Trenton, NJ) increased the ODU lead, scoring at the 74:14 mark, off a Heather Jones (Waldorf, MD) assist.  A minute later, Laura Beeman scored an unassisted goal for the Lady Monarchs.  Beeman scored again nearly 10 minutes later, at the 85:01 mark of the half, off a Kim Snyder (Virginia Beach, VA/Tallwood) assist.  Three minutes later, Tina DiFerdinando (Boothwyn, PA) capped off the Lady Monarch assault, with an unassisted goal.


For the game, the Lady Monarchs had a 21-2 shot advantage and a 6-2 corner kicks edge.  Senior goalkeeper Stephanie Miller (Plymouth Meeting, PA) allowed only one goal in 90 minutes of play.
