NORFOLK, Va. - The Old Dominion lacrosse team has won back-to-back games and will look to stay hot Saturday as the Lady Monarchs welcome intrastate rival Virginia Tech to the Powhatan Sports Complex for a 1 p.m. contest.

Old Dominion (2-2) is coming off a thrilling 16-15 come-from-behind victory over Longwood Wednesday. Sophomore Lisa Bernardini scored a career-high five goals, including the game-winner with only 23 seconds remaining.

Senior's Ashley Kellogg and Nicole McMahon tallied four goals each to ignite a potent ODU offensive attack that scored a season-high 16 goals.

Virginia Tech (3-7) broke a three-game losing streak with a 22-8 win over Davidson Wednesday. A season-high 12 different Hokies registered goals and Ryan Rotanz led the way with four scores.

Allie Emala leads Virginia Tech with 30 points on 22 goals and eight assists.

Old Dominion is 2-1 all-time against Virginia Tech, but the Hokies won a thrilling 11-10 double overtime decision against the Lady Monarchs in Blacksburg last year.
