The Old Dominion women's soccer team will head across the water today to face William and Mary in their second Colonial Athletic Association match of the season at 7:00 p.m. today. The Lady Monarchs will look to break a nine game losing streak to the Tribe as they are 0-9 against them.
The Lady Monarchs moved their record to 2-5-1 after battling James Madison to scoreless tie in Norfolk on Saturday. The Dukes had won the four previous matchups between the two schools, but Kristen Bailey (Hamilton, VA) made a career high 12 saves to keep JMU off the scoreboard. It was her first shutout of the year and the second in a row for ODU. She now leads the CAA in saves with 5.33 per game.
On the offensive side of the ball the Lady Monarchs are led by Ashley Kramer (Jefferson Hills, PA) who has tallied four goals this season, including two in the 5-0 win over American. Maura Linz (Prospect, KY) is second in the CAA with five assists after breaking the ODU record for assist in a game with four against American. ODU has also received major offensive contributions from five different freshmen this season. Leading the way is Heather Vaughan (Va. Beach, VA) who has scored three goals and added an assist. She is tied for second on the team with Diane Baucom (Va. Beach, VA) with seven points.
The Tribe have not won a game in their last five contests (0-4-1) after starting the 2002 campaign 4-0. Today's game will be the first CAA match for William and Mary. Lindsey Vanderspiegel is tied for third in the CAA with five goals and 11 total points to lead the team.
