HARRISONBURG, Va., -- The Old Dominion Lady Monarch lacrosse team fell to 3-5 on the season and 0-2 in league play as they fell to James Madison in Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) competition, 15-3. The Lady Monarchs collected two goals from sophomore Ashley Stanwick (Aquasco, Md.) as well as two assists from sophomore Caroline Jacobs (Gaitherburg, Md.). Rookie Kaelyn Schival (Horsham, Pa.) added in ODU's third and final goal of the afternoon for her first career tally.
James Madison improved to 6-4 overall and 1-1 in the CAA as Brooke McKenzie finished with four goals for the Dukes, three of which were assisted by Brownridge. Brownridge scored twice and in doing so surpassed the 100-career goal mark. In the second half she netted her 100th goal with 13:34 remaining and her 101st with 9:00 left.
The Dukes struck first, just under four minutes into the contest on a Lauren Bradley tally off a feed from Kelly Berger, however Old Dominion managed to tie the score at 1-1 at the 19:28 mark. Stanwick notched her first goal of the afternoon on a pass from Jacobs to knot the score at one apiece.
Although the Dukes managed to light up the score board three more times, Stanwick and Jacobs teamed up again to cut the Lady Monarch deficit to 4-2 with 12:32 remaining in the half. Emily Haller added in another Duke goal with 8:18 on the clock and both teams remained scoreless the rest of the half as James Madison held on to a 5-2 lead.
In the second half, James Madison dominated the offense only allowing one Lady Monarch tally while scoring 10. Schival, on her first collegiate goal, reached the back of the Duke net unassisted at the 17:25 mark to bring the score to 8-3. From there, James Madison racked up seven more goals for the final score.
James Madison senior goalkeeper Amy Altig made eight second-half saves and finished with 15 stops. ODU's Michelle Gannon (Delmar, Md.) made 11 saves in just over 46 minutes of play, while freshman reserve goalie Sara Larson (Sylvan Lake, Mich.) saw action in the second half of play.
The Lady Monarchs return to action on Wednesday against Virginia at Foreman Field. The Cavaliers were ranked second nationally in this past week's IWLCA Poll.
